Remembrance Travel for Schools and Young People
As the national custodian of Remembrance, The Royal British Legion believes that Remembrance should be used as a means of educating people about the realities of conflict, those affected by war and the importance of peace. Remembrance Travel for Schools and Young People was therefore created by The Royal British Legion to enable this belief to become a reality.
We arrange tours to Europe and in the UK, designed to bring the past to life and to give students and youth groups a direct and memorable experience of history and culture, tailored to their curriculum or interests. We are currently offering tours in the UK, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy and Poland. Tour durations vary from one day to four or five days, depending on your location in the UK and where you want to go.
To ensure that you enjoy the very highest standards of tour arrangements, The Royal British Legion has chosen the Newmarket Group to deliver the logistical arrangements for the tours, including the transport and accommodation, as well as the responsibility of liaising with you and looking after every aspect of your arrangements, from your initial enquiry until you return from the tour.
All tours are led by The Royal British Legion's specially trained guides, many with direct Service experience, who encourage participation, exploration and debate as they recount the experiences of those who were there. They use tour specific support materials linked to curricula or themes to create interest and involvement. An Act of Remembrance is then held at the end of each tour.
