Belgium History School Tour
Belgium is the perfect destination for students to dive into history without travelling too far from the UK. Visit medieval towns, historic Brussels and World War I Battlefields on your next school trip to Belgium. The majority of trips we send to Belgium are concerned with the study of the first World War. The country suffered greatly in these conflicts and visits to Ypres and Mons combined with the numerous key battlefield sites just over the border in France gives students a real and vivid understanding of the horrors experienced.
Miraculously, considering the number of wars and conflicts that have occurred in Belgium, the main cities have retained their medieval charm and atmosphere. There is an abundance of historical and architectural landmarks in Brussels that are must sees for everybody, but in particular history students. To name just a couple, these include The Royal Palace and the King’s House - inside of which there's a museum dedicated to Brussels' development and rich history.
