History school trips & tours

Bring History to life with NST, we offer a range of history shool tour destinations to enrich classroom-based learning and to inspire a deeper interest in history. We can personalise your tour and theme your itinerary to suit the learning requirements of your group.

For pupils studying Medicine and Surgery on the Western Front, on our established WWI Battlefields programme, they can take a tour following the journey a casualty would have taken as he was evacuated from the Front and consider the effect of both the scientific and organisational developments that the war engendered and their impact, both on the battlefield and on the wider course of medical history.

The history of the Cold War, the Holocaust and the Nazi dictatorship are all evident in Berlin. Our history trips programme cover key study themes and we can tailor-make your tour to meet your exact requirements.
