School Visits

In line with the latest government guidelines for schools, we’re currently unable to accept education visits, and bookings are temporarily closed. We’ll be in touch again as soon as we have more details on opening arrangements for education visitors, and we hope to be able to welcome you back soon.

We’ve announced our opening plans for general visitors – please see full details here.

For details on our safety measures for schools and our adapted Discovery Visit workshops please see our what to expect page.

We have a wide range of resources and materials for teachers and parents looking for support with home learning. See our learning resources pages to find out more.

"Education is one of English Heritage’s key values, and we are committed to supporting learners during this difficult time, especially whilst schools are closed.  Our free educational resources can be used by both teachers and parents for remote or home lessons and are full of rich historical facts, images and fun activities that will bring history to life for pupils.  We’ve also put together top tips and guidance for parents and guardians who are helping their children learn from home.  We hope that through our resources we can share our love of history and learning with you, and that we’ll soon be able to welcome you back to our incredible sites that have shaped England’s story."

Dr Dominique Bouchard, Head of Learning and Interpretation

Teaching history

History is an incredibly valuable subject to learn. It builds enquiry skills, fuels the imagination and helps children feel a sense of self in a wider context. 

But with thousands of years to cover, it can be hard to know where to start. We have gathered together advice, hints and tips from teachers, education experts and historians to support your teaching of the past.
