Imagine… uncovering the life and works of Gaudi as you visit Barcelona; see how the landscapes and architecture influenced the artist and the legacy he has left behind. Students could stop for a practical session in the famous Parc Guell or visit the main street artists who have a regular pitch on Las Ramblas.
Imagine… stepping foot into one of the world’s most renowned art galleries, the Louvre in Paris, before taking to the streets of Montmartre where street artists flock to exhibit their work.
Imagine… exploring Florence, the epitome of Renaissance and Classical art, where over 40 galleries and museums house the works of artists such as Michelangelo and Botticelli.

“Rayburn's professionalism meant that any potential problems were identified in the planning stage so that the staff could enjoy the visit as much as the students obviously did.”
“Have always found the service excellent and, just as important, flexible if necessary. The tour packs are also excellent with meticulous preparation which makes the trip far less stressful on the ground.”
“We have worked with Rayburn for 15 years now. The trips are always really well organised.”
“The moments when the children sat down in a church or museum and just started to draw. They just seem to understand how valuable drawing is as an aid to really looking at things. They will all remember the things that they drew with more clarity than anything that they merely looked at.”
“Highly successful and well organised.”
