All-School Overnight Field Trips – Spring 2022
LIVERPOOL & MANCHESTER
The Liverpool Football Club is a household name in the US and UK for playing in the Premier League, but its host city is home to a lot of other great history and culture as well. Named by the Guinness World Records as the World Capital City of Pop, Liverpool is the birthplace of The Beatles. Britain’s fifth-largest city has also been a major port from the Industrial Revolution through to today, and was the Port of Registry for RMS Titanic. Liverpool Cathedral is one of the largest church buildings in the world, and Speke Hall is a fantastic example of Tudor architecture which has stood since 1598.
Common activities on this trip:
- a bicycle of Liverpool’s city centre
- a day trip to Manchester with a guided tour of the world’s first and greatest industrial city
- a visit to the Liverpool Football Club Stadium and Museum
- a ferry ride across a UNESCO waterfront
Though not the capital of the United Kingdom, Edinburgh is a capital city – it has been Scotland’s primary seat of government since the 15th century. In addition to the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh is home to the Palace of Holyroodhouse (the official residence of the monarchy in Scotland) as well as an amazingly preserved iconic castle, a famous hill known for its views of the city called Arthur’s Seat, and an international theatre festival that runs each August. Students on this trip will have the chance to explore museums, monuments, and mountains!
Common activities on this trip:
- Guided walk of historic Edinburgh, wandering down centuries-old cobblestone streets, passageways, and tenements
- Climb of Arthur’s Seat, the highest of Edinburgh’s extinct volcanic hills, located in Holyrood Park
- Tour of Edinburgh Castle, one of the oldest fortified places in Europe with a long rich history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison, and a fortress
- Visit to the Scottish Parliament (Pàrlamaid na h-Alba), the law-making body for devolved matters
Cardiff has been Wales’ capital since 1955 and now hosts the Senedd, home to the Welsh Assembly (the country’s National Parliament). Its gorgeous waterfront also boasts the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex and a plaza named after children’s author Roald Dahl. Cardiff’s city centre includes the BBC drama village, a Norman Castle built over a Roman fort, and the Principality Stadium for rugby. Nearby is the Big Pit Museum in a working coal mine and the beautiful Brecon Beacons, both of which students on this trip will have the opportunity to visit.
Other common trip highlights:
- a behind-the-scenes tour of the Principality Stadium to learn the rules of rugby
- a theatre production at the Wales Millennium Centre
- a wander through the iconic Animal Walk, lifelike sculptures in stone
OXFORD & COTSWOLDS
This trip will cover many miles through the English countryside. Begin your time in Oxford, exploring one of the world’s most famous (and oldest) universities. Then travel to the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to picturesque villages and cutesy cottages. On the final day, you’ll visit Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare.
