School trips roadmap

Updated: Apr 29, 2021

As of Monday 12th April, phase two of the government’s roadmap means that schools trips can resume day trips[1].

School day trips UK #The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors offers outstanding opportunities across the UK, even in London, and our dedicated school trips team at Creative DMC can create Covid-safe itineraries featuring zoos, national parks, castles, gardens and other outdoor pursuits, helping students connect with nature, wildlife and more.

If the outdoors is not your cup of tea, many art galleries are now open with fantastic exhibitions across the UK.

Why are galleries open? Well, most of them sell art, so those which do have been able to reopen along with non-essential shops!

From 17th May 2021[2] and the launch of phase three, residential trips can resume, and we are full of an-ti-ci-pation for theatres to reopen, even if with limited capacity. Many shows have already announced their opening dates, with many expecting to reopen by the beginning of June.

From this date, museums and remaining galleries, indoor attractions, restaurants and other hospitality venues will finally be able to reopen, and we can resume our multi-award-winning West End Workshops too, although with limited capacity.

Finally, from 21st June 2021, with the expected launch of phase four of the government’s roadmap, remaining restrictions should be lifted and the full gamut of school trips can resume.

Currently there are no updates on international school trips, but given the additional logistical challenges regarding international travel with BREXIT and COVID-19, we do not anticipate international trips to resume before Easter 2022.
