History Trips

Our history trips focus on the current curriculum and visit key European cities including Berlin, Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Curriculum studies focus very much on the WW2 period and the Russian Revolution and our main tours reflect this. Berlin is one of the most popular destinations for history departments and our tours cover both the WW2 period and the Cold War era which followed. In the south of Germany we can visit Munich and Nuremburg, two cities which were crucial in the rise of the Nazi party. Russia‘s turbulent history can be seen in Moscow where we see the Kremlin and Lenin’s mausoleum, but also in St. Petersburg where the Tsars ruled and where the 1917 Revolution began.

American history can be followed all the way back from the early colonial period and the Jamestown settlers, right the way through to the Civil Rights movement of the 1950’s and 60s.  Along the way we can examine the tensions leading up to the Boston Tea Party, the subsequent War of Independence fought with French help against the British, and the Civil War, when the Confederate States under General Lee came within a whisker of defeating the Yankees.
