Remembrance Travel for Young People
The Legion provides provide tours in Europe and the UK that bring the past to life. We believe that Remembrance can educate people about the realities of conflict, those affected by wars and the importance of peace.
Our tours for young people and schools aim to help students understand that the sites they visit are not simply monuments to people of the past, but living memories to help us reflect on the present.
Each tour is led by specially trained ex-Service men and women ready to guide, communicate and work with schools and young people, giving students and youth groups a direct and memorable experience of history and culture, tailored to curriculums or interests.
Tours are planned to match your school's requirements, and there are familiarisation trips for teachers and education staff throughout the year.
