Education & learning at the causeway

The Giant's Causeway is not just a visitor attraction, it is a valuable educational facility that provides a wealth of learning experiences for pupils.

Each of our visiting students take away a workbook which can be revisited in the classroom, recapping what they have learned from their visit. Answers to these workbook questions and quizzes are included on this page.

For more information about our programs, and answers to the 'Managing a World Heritage Site' booklet, contact Learning & Visitor Experience Manager, Eleanor Killough. You can also watch a video of Eleanor talking about her job on the Our Work page.
