First World War School Trips

First World War

Europe’s descent into bloody conflict a century ago brought to a violent close the age of 19th Century imperialism and ushered in a new era of industrialised, mechanised and technological warfare - a ‘total war’ that changed the face of British society. 

Our First World War battlefield tours aim to provide a learning experience that combines narrative and emotion. Students explore preserved trenches, tunnels and no man’s land, discover the ages and sheer numbers of those killed and experience emotion at both the Menin Gate and amongst the headstones of Tyne Cot cemetery, the largest on the Western Front.

To gain more depth and understanding to your tour, The Cultural Experience has access to a wide range of experts to accompany your group, including academics, historians, retired military and professional battlefield guides. We can tailor your trip to provide in depth and nuanced examinations of the causes and reasons behind the stalemate on the Western Front, make it more relevant to young people by tying your itinerary into the local history of your community, explore the impact of the Great War upon the poetry and literature of the time and discuss the impact of the war on the Home Front and its transformative effect on Great Britain.

To tailor your perfect first world war school trip just get in touch.
