Hey teachers, our new UK school geography trips are here!

Last updated: Sep 30th, 2020

Explore the geography that exists right on your doorstep!

For over 55 years, we’ve been helping students discover the geographical wonders of the world – and now we’re bringing things closer to home with our new UK school geography trips!

UK trips aren’t anything new to us – we’ve been offering them for years alongside all of our international destinations! But because we know some schools aren’t quite ready to start thinking about travelling internationally in 2021, we’ve spent the last 6 months enhancing our UK portfolio to make our geography trips even more exciting, educational and great value for money – all backed by Rayburn’s Covid Guarantee.

What are the new UK destinations?

We’ve picked these destinations because they’re ideal learning environments for young geographers and perfect for fieldwork.

In North Wales, students can experience one of the best examples of glacial landscape in the UK. Down in Cornwall and the West Country, Cheddar Gorge is an excellent example to learn about the effects of water on the landscape, as well as land use and economic activity (not forgetting a visit to the Eden Project). Whilst in London, students can study urban change and regeneration, and even widen their breadth of study with a visit to the London Wetland Centre.



The perks of travelling within the UK
  • You’re never too far from home
  • There’s just as much to see and do in the UK as there is internationally
  • More budget-friendly
  • It’s the perfect stepping stone to an international trip
  • Helps rebuild confidence in travel again


The perfect stepping stone to an international trip

Giving students the chance to travel but still stay close to home, as well as take advantage of the learning opportunities in their local area, UK trips are expected to grow in popularity for 2021.

For many, they’re a stepping stone to an international trip, as well as a great ‘in between alternative’ for schools who’d normally travel abroad each year.

Even more, it’s the first step to rebuilding confidence in travel – particularly for schools, students and parents. Should anything not go to plan during a trip, parents will often feel more reassured knowing their child is still on home soil.

Rayburn Covid Guarantee

Groups can also book with confidence with our Covid Guarantee – which provides unrivalled, extra flexible cancellation policies and added reassurance.

Giving students something to look forward to

Offering just as much value as an international trip, these UK travel opportunities for geography students are the perfect pick-me-up for schools who are hankering to get away. Because that’s what we all work towards, right? A holiday. A trip away. A change of scenery. Ultimately, a chance to explore somewhere new.
