Educational Battlefield Tours

Bringing history to life for more than 25 years

Our Story

With almost 40 years’ experience in operating Battlefield and History tours and more than 25 years in running School Travel, Holts Tours prides itself in being the specialist in educational travel and the leading history and battlefield tours company.

We offer educational school visits, trips and tours for school student groups, in Europe, around the UK and overseas. Our range of trips covers art, culture, geography, science and language tours as well as battlefields and history.

All school tours can be tailor-made to suit the needs of your pupils, parents and school. Some schools like to combine an art or cultural trip with leisure time, while on history and battlefield tours, some schools prefer to visit a specific grave or war cemetery and lay a wreath. Let us know your requirements and we can build them into the itinerary.

Battlefields & Educational Tours

School trips are an essential part of a child’s education, helping to foster a sense of adventure and allowing them the freedom to explore the world in a safe and supervised environment. Many experts say that such tours help to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience.

Such visits can give students fresh perspectives and understanding of the world, inspiring and illuminating the subjects that they are studying. Battlefield tours give them a greater insight into what life was like for the combatants and those affected by the World Wars, allowing students to develop a deeper understanding and a greater empathy.

Expert guidance and planning

The fact that so many schools are loyal to us stems from our appreciation of the challenges associated with co-ordinating a successful school trip.

Our experienced School Tours Executive, Tracey Morgan, has direct knowledge of the trials, tribulations and joys of school trip planning, having arranged and been on familiarisation trips, as well as having organised inbound and outbound tours around the world. This wisdom ensures that each tour you travel on with Holts Tours will cover every eventuality and explore every opportunity.
