We are the oldest and one of the most popular companies providing Viking & Saxon 1066 School Workshops and one of the few 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 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
