School trips to Belgium

  • Belgium
  • Menin Gate and Last Post Ceremony, Ypres
  • Belgium Canal

A compact country brimming with culture, Belgium is a great close-to-home option for a school trip. With its beautiful cities situated in close proximity, you and your students can gain a real insight into the history and culture of the country as you hop between Bruges, Ypres, Ghent and Brussels on a school trip to Belgium.

Whilst history students can broaden their knowledge of the First World War, visiting the monuments, museums and battlefields of Ypres and Waterloo, school music groups can perform in the medieval cathedrals and bustling market squares of Ghent and Bruges or the coastal bandstands of Ostend.

Whatever your subject area, we recommend you attend the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate, where history groups can participate by laying a wreath and school music groups can perform as part of the ceremony. Charged with such emotional energy, it’s no wonder that this is so often cited as a highlight by groups on a school trip to Belgium.
