Schools & Young People
As the national custodian of Remembrance, The Royal British Legion believe that Remembrance should be used to inform people about the realities of conflict, those that are affected by wars and the importance of peace.
To bring this message to young people, the Legion offers tours through Remembrance Travel for Schools and Young People. Together with the Legion's learning programme, these tours support schools and young people as they start to understand and participate in Remembrance and learn about people whose lives are affected by conflict.
Our tours are designed to bring the past to life. Our aim is that students understand the sites they visit not as monuments to people of the past, but as living memories to help us understand and reflect on the present.
We specialise in taking 13-17 year-olds on affordable visits to the battlefields of Europe but tours to other destinations can be arranged. Advice can be given on pre-tour work to help students and staff gain the maximum benefit from their trip, and tours are accompanied by an expert guide with lectures, on-site briefings, videos etc to enhance and complement the curriculum.
