Free Self-Led Visits
Inspire your class this term and stand in the places where history happened, for free! A school trip can support student wellbeing, help you kick-start a topic and cover cross-curricular learning. Our free self-led visits are available to all pre-booked learning groups (please check our t&cs to see if you're eligible) so you can organise your own visit to suit your needs. To help support your planning we have a wide range of free downloadable teaching resources, designed by teachers, historians and site experts to really help you bring your area of study to life.
Our staff are still working hard to keep everyone safe and we continue to keep a range of measures in place, such as limited capacity in some indoor spaces, to make sure you and your group have an enjoyable visit. Please book your visit online at least 14 days in advance and make sure you check the facilties section on our schools pages, which you can find below using the search bar, and our what to expect page for full details of what's in place ahead of your trip.

Free Planning Visits
Once your booking is confirmed, we recommend a free planning visit to help you prepare for your trip and familiarise yourself with the site. Whether you have an existing visit booked with us or are making a new booking, you’ll need to book your free planning visit in advance. Simply go to the webpage of the site you want to visit, and in the book tickets section select from the ‘Associated Organisations’ tab ticket options.
You won’t be able to get in to our sites unless you have pre-booked your free planning visit tickets and have your education booking permit with you to show a member of staff on entry.
Your permit also gives you a 20% discount on the official English Heritage guidebook for your place of choice.
