Our ‘Best of England’ and ‘Best of Scotland’ tours are a great way for students to extend their stay in the UK before or after their International Summer School experience.
The fully supervised 5-day tours provide our students with the opportunity to explore our amazing country with five days of fun, culture and history, taking in some of the UK’s most famous cities, sights and experiences.
Accompanied by the school’s staff and pastoral teams, students can expect complete care and supervision whilst enjoying the highlights of England and Scotland from a young person’s perspective.
Both tours start and finish at Giggleswick School, with the ‘Best of England’ Tour departing the day after our July International Summer School ends and the ‘Best of Scotland’ Tour following straight after and arriving back at Giggleswick the day before our August Summer School starts.
Best of England Tour
The tour starts with three days in London, providing plenty of time for sightseeing and taking in a West End Show on one evening. We then leave the bustle of London and head for the beautiful university towns of Oxford and Cambridge, including tours of the towns and universities.
Best of Scotland Tour
Edinburgh is the first stop with two days of exploring the city, including a tour of the castle, national museums and some shopping on the famous Princes Street. We then travel across to Glasgow to take in the Cathedral, museum and Science Centre and then escape to the Highlands on a hunt for the Loch Ness Monster!
