Happy Birthday to us! Euroculture is 50 Years Old this year!

Euroculture celebrates its Golden Anniversary in 2016. Founded at a meeting on 21st April 1966 - the year England lifted the World Cup - we are now proud to mark five decades of achievements in the youth travel industry.

In those early days, Euroculture started by organising ground-breaking trips for thousands of French schoolchildren staying in family homes the length and breadth of the UK. Fifty years on, the direction of travel has reversed - but our love affair with France now offers fantastic experiences for UK schoolchildren on the other side of The Channel. 

We want your school to be part of the next Fifty years! If you would like to know more about the history of our organisation, please check out our dedicated page. If you would like to be part of our future, please get in touch. Published May 2016

Special Offer - Amiens Christmas Market 2016

Euroculture is delighted to offer schools the chance to experience the magic of a continental Christmas Market and enjoy a guided tour of the beautiful historic city of Amiens at a very attractive price of £110 per pupil with teachers travelling free!

From late November, for schools within reach of the Channel Ports, there is a wonderful opportunity to bring some French-style festivity to the academic calendar. It doesn't have to be costly or even stray into valuable school hours as the city of Amiens boasts the largest Christmas Market in northern France and is just a short motorway trip on the other side of the water.

Please click here for more details of the itinerary and the terms of the special offer. Published March 2016

Be Our Valentine! Fall in love with France this year

Valentine's Day is upon us, so we would like to say how much we love France! We love the food. We love the language. We love the culture. And we love School Trips! Why not show your love for France by booking your next visit now?

2016 will be a very busy year with July marking the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme. It's not too late to book a tour for the Summer Term but demand is high so please get in touch as soon as possible to check availability for your preferred dates. Published February 2016

Back to School? Back to School Trips!

With another new school year quickly back in full swing, it's time to start thinking about your next School Trip to France - and get those letters out to parents! Here at Euroculture, we are as excited as you about the possibilities and enquiries are coming in fast.

We still have a very short amount of time to book a trip to the French Christmas Markets later this year, but if you are planning organise a visit for next year, we would urge you to get in touch with us quickly. 2016 will mark the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme, so availability is already stretched for Battlefields Tours, and with recent focus on Normandy events, trips to all parts of Northern France are proving ever-popular.

During the Summer holidays, we have been busy forward-planning. We will soon be introducing some new residential accommodation in Paris here on our website, and we also hope to extend our network to Le Touquet and an excellent new venue in the Nord region. 'Watch this space' for more details... but please do not hesitate to contact us right away if you have already something in mind. We will do our best to help, but you must act quickly to secure the best accommodation. Published September 2015 

Napoleon and the French Empire... be a Bonapart of it with Euroculture!

It is unlikely to have escaped your attention that June 2015 represents the bi-centenary of the Battle of Waterloo. Defeat in Belgium marked the end (for a second and last time) for the Emperor Napoleon and he would soon be exiled by the British.

Napoleon would return to the heart of his Empire, but only in death some 25 years after that defeat at the hands of Wellington. Taking place nearly two decades after his passing on the island of Saint-Helena, his state funeral would lead him on his final journey through the streets of Paris from the Arc de Triomphe, which had been built to honour his supreme achievements in the Napoleonic Wars that he gave his name to. He would eventually be laid to rest in the Hôtel des Invalides, once a hospital for wounded soldiers and veterans. Now a museum to his Grand Armée, the fine golden dome here can be seen for miles around and is a fitting home to his tomb - an impressive sarcophagus made of red stone.

If you would like to bring your school group to Paris to visit the Arc de Triomphe and Les Invalides to learn more about Napoleon's Empire and legacy in France, Euroculture would love to take you there. Please get in touch - we will be pleased to hear from you. Published June 2015 

Bonne Année! Happy New Year!

We hope everyone has had an enjoyable Christmas break and that you have all had an opportunity to recharge your batteries for the New Year.

2015 is now in full swing and here at Euroculture we are busy making arrangements for our schools visiting France - including Paris - this year. We are also in the process of adding some new content to the website, so please do keep checking back. Published January 2015 

Merry Christmas from Euroculture!

As the end of another school term arrives we would like to offer all our travelling schools and website visitors some festive wishes. We have had  a great year at Euroculture and are looking forward to working with you all again in the New Year and beyond.

For those of you who haven't travelled with us before, why not make a New Year's resolution to try us out in 2015?!

The year will continue with Great War centenary events, but did you know October will also mark the 600th Anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt? September will represent 300 years since the death of Louis XIV - France's remarkable 'Sun King' and builder of the Chateau at Versailles.

As ever, there will be so many great reasons to plan a school trip to France in 2015. If you would like to visit Agincourt, Versailles, the Great War Battlefields - or any other fantastic French destination, please do contact us by phone, email or through this website. In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas break! Joyeux Noël! Published December 2014 

Remembering the Fallen: A Message from Euroculture

Every year we take a number of School groups across The Channel to experience first hand the sites and scenes of the two World Wars which made their mark on the last Century and the world in which we live today.

A century on from the first few months of The Great War - supposedly the war to end all wars - there is still much for us to learn from those events.

We would like to take this opportunity to pay our respects to all those who fell in those conflicts and the many others since. We hope that their great courage and many sacrifices were not in vain. As time pushes them further from our reach and deeper into history, it has been never more important to remember not to forget.

We believe that education holds the key to avoiding such catastrophic human loss and tragedy in the future. We hope that the next generations will continue to be informed and inspired by visiting the many cemeteries, memorials and museums that feature in tours of Normandy, The Somme and Flanders. If you are considering organising a Remembrance Tour of The Great War battlefields, you may find some inspiration here with our personally selected itinerary.

As we now approach the Armistice events on November 2014, we thought we should share this excellent webpage telling the fascinating story behind the emergence of the Poppy as the international symbol of remembrance. We hope you like it. Published November 2014

4th August 2014 - 100 Years to Remember - Plan Your School Battlefields Tours Early

It will be difficult to escape the media coverage of the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. Monday 4th August 2014 marks the anniversary of the British declaration of war on Germany in 1914 and the beginning of remembrance events lasting more than four years commemorating those tragic events.

We have devoted a page on this website to themed World War One battlefield tours for schools. Understandably, the focus on the centenary events will lead to increased demand for such trips so if you are planning to take a group across The Channel to visit some of the many sites and memorials to support your classroom activities, we recommend that you get in contact with us as early as possible to make arrangements.

Welcome to our New Website!

After more than a decade in the business of sending UK schools on trips to France, we thought the time was right to produce a brand new website. It's been a long time in the making - Euroculture will soon be celebrating it's 50th year as a specialist in Educational Travel! We have a fascinating history - and we hope you will take some time to read about it on these pages - but our future is even more exciting! And we want you to join us on this journey!

We've tried to think of everything that might help Teachers and other tour organisers decide to plan a trip with us. If we've missed anything, please do take the time to drop us a line and let our team know. Oh, and we still need to fill a few gaps here and there. We are a family enterprise and every inch (or pixel!) of this website has been personally crafted and coded with our business in mind - successful school trips are our main priority and we want to show you that we know our stuff.

Our website is a shop window - a taste of the some of the most popular destinations, venues and attractions that schools who travel with us enjoy. France is our speciality, and we specialise in our customers. We have a wealth of knowledge and resources available to us and if you don't see what you need in these pages, please do contact us as we will do our very best to find what exactly you are looking for.

If you have any comments, queries or feedback on our new website, please let us know by completing our web enquiry form. Published June 2014
