As the gateway to the Peak District, Derbyshire is full of back-to-nature bliss and cultural charm. Pack your itinerary with a range of indoor and outdoor visits and discover just what makes a school cultural trip to Derbyshire so enticing.

Take the cable car to the Heights of Abraham, get stuck into a number of team-building activities at Mount Cook Adventure Centre, and explore Chatsworth House and its grounds. And with Alton Towers nearby, you can even build in a day of theme park fun!

There are so many opportunities to join students together for a well-rounded cross curricular trip. Combining a Cultural Trip with Geography and Art and Design would be just one suggestion we’d make. Start talking to our specialist Tour Consultants
