Remembrance Travel tours in Europe and the UK bring the past to life.
We believe that for schools and young people, Remembrance is a powerful way to learn about the realities of conflict, those affected by wars and the importance of peace.
These trips offer a direct and memorable experience of history and culture, tailored to each group's specific curriculum or interests. Each tour is led by one of our expert guides, many of whom are ex-Service men and women specially trained to guide, communicate and work with schools and young people.
Our aim is that students understand the sites they visit not as monuments to people of the past, but as living memories to help us understand and reflect on the present. An Act of Remembrance is held during each tour.
We understand that it takes a great deal of time and effort for teachers taking their students away on a tour. We are committed to making your tour preparation and planning as straightforward as possible.
We support the teaching of Remembrance across the UK and have designed a range of free teaching resources for Key Stages 1- 4. Exploring the concept of service before self, the resources examine the importance of Remembrance and its ongoing relevance.
