We are proud of our long tradition of delivering quality educational trips that excite and inspire young minds, capturing their imagination in a way we know will be remembered and treasured for ever. Many of our adult visitors tell us about their fond memories of school trips to Beningbrough as a child.

Not your average classroom

Making the most of its historic spaces, garden, parkland and collection, Beningbrough provides the perfect backdrop to engage your pupils with real objects, stories, people and settings. 
So whether you’re wanting to the inspire the next generation of social historians, nurture artists and writers or rouse ground breaking environmentalists of the future, our quality Key Stage 1 to 5 Curriculum linked programmes have something to support all your teaching needs. 

Planned to perfection 

We've done all the planning so the away day from school is not only relevant but fun and inspiring. Combining engaging and exciting workshops alongside hands-on activities and costumed interpretation, we excite and inspire young minds, bringing history to life delivering a learning experience that cannot be re-created in the classroom.
