See what a workshop involves
We are the oldest most experienced and popular companies providing Viking, Saxon & 1066 School Workshops, we are also one of the few companies who make visits all over the UK. We average over 200 school workshops per year and 1000's of schools have experienced one of our school workshops and a large number of which book return visits year on year with some schools booking a year or more in advance to get the date that they want, so we always recommend that schools book a visit as early as possible!

We now offer a workshop covering 1066 for both Primary and Senior schools.

All our staff who make school visits hold a current CRB/Disclosure Certificate

Our Workshop days are considerably more environmentally friendly than nearly all out of school trips as we use a small modern fuel efficient vehicle compared to a large coach or coaches that are required to transport pupils and staff to and from a venue, we also arrive early and are ready to start on average at 9:15 am and normally finish just before the end of the school day so there is no time wasted travelling or stuck in traffic.
