An Unrivalled Guided History Tours for Schools

We work with you to design a bespoke tour which meets the specific needs of your school and which supports what you are teaching in class. We start by asking what you want your students to see and what you want them to experience then build the tour around these requirements.

A tour which, as the testimonials on our website show, your students will find thought-provoking, engaging and enjoyable.

Military History Tours

We provide battlefield studies that range from a Realities of War package for the Initial Training Group, through battlefield studies for regular and reserve units, to high level staff rides for major UK and NATO headquarters. 

Every client is different and so are their requirements. Our commitment is to facilitate training that not only meets unit or headquarters’ training aims but is conducted in a manner appropriate to the group. To achieve this the package must be workable on the ground, financially viable and above all, a positive and enjoyable learning experience for the participants.

Consequently, the first step for our mainly ex-Service staff is to discuss with the project officer the training outcomes that the commander wishes from the study. From there we work with project officers to produce workable itineraries, administrative plans, materials required by, for instance, the Army’s AGAI 23 and the supporting training aids.

On the ground during the study or staff ride our guides deliver the historical content and take on the administrative burden, maximising the numbers able to focus on training delivery and outcomes.

The Stories We Tell

The Anglia team have more than a hundred years of experience in travel between them, are there to support you throughout your tour from inception to conclusion.

Our team of expert and highly experienced guides, each selected not only for the depth of their historical knowledge but more importantly for their ability to engage and inspire your students, are there to ensure they gain the maximum educational benefit from the tour and to deal with any problems that may arise – no matter how serious.

We will be careful in our delivery of information which will be accurate, consistent and pitched at the correct level. This applies to both our guides and the quality of supporting literature and booklets.

We will maintain a respect for historical accuracy; keep abreast of the relevant current academic debates whilst delivering information in an engaging manner that is sensitive to the needs of the audience.

Anglia Tours are experts in guided history tours

We strongly believe that no other UK School Tours Operator meets the Anglia Standard but you don’t have to take our word for it. Below you will find a host of testimonials from our School, Military and Adult group customers.

Please can you pass on my thanks to both John and Sean who did a fantastic job as our guides on Friday. They were engaging and exceptionally knowledgeable which was noted by both staff and pupils. I would thoroughly recommend you as a tour provider, and hope to use you guys again in the future!

We definitely will be looking to re-book with you for next academic year
