From 3rd-6th March, a group of 35 primary school children and teachers from across the UK travelled with Rayburn Tours to the historic French town of Azincourt (known by the British as Agincourt), after being selected as the lucky winners of an education competition run by the Historical Association.
This is just one of the many British commemorations for the 600th anniversary of the 1415 Battle of Agincourt, and Rayburn Tours were delighted to be asked to be part of the trip’s travel and logistical arrangements.
The photos from the visit are now live, so take a peek to see what the group got up to! With lessons at a local primary school, a guided tour of the historic Agincourt battlefield, an afternoon archery session and shield-making workshops, their own re-enactment and a visit to the quaint seaside town of Boulogne-sur-Mer, they certainly packed a lot in!
Helping to develop the students’ understanding of the 15th century world, it was a pleasure to work with the Historical Association and we hope that everyone involved enjoyed the trip!
