School Trip to Devon

A School trip to Devon offers you an amazing wealth of opportunities for learning outside the classroom for your students.  Devon is a county of great contrasts. 

Steeped in history, there are beautiful chocolate box villages, with whitewashed cottages topped with thatched roofs, a common architectural feature of this part of England, nestled in the steep wooded valleys of the Devon countryside. 

The deep red earth in the fields is particularly prevalent at certain times of the year, when you see the farmers ploughing the land and is another geographical feature only found in part of Britain.

Devon is also blessed with two National Parks, the Exmoor National Park and the Dartmoor National Park. In addition to this there are five official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing a wonderful place for learning as well as outdoor adventure. 

If you’re a lover of the seaside, Devon can’t be beaten for giving your students a real treat.  Enjoy a surfing lesson or a day out with a local guide who will tailor your day to meet your National Curriculum studies. Sandy family-friendly beaches, pebbled coves, wild and windswept bays with stunning views – Devon has it all. It also has rolling hills, fertile farmland – and craggy moorland.
