Trips And Visits
Nestled within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, our travel course thrives on the vibrant energy of tourism that surrounds us. We don't just read about destinations; we experience them first hand through active exploration. From behind-the-scenes tours of local hotels and travel companies to immersive visits to iconic attractions like Blackpool and Flamingo Land, we delve into the heart of tourism. Our adventures extend beyond the bustling cityscapes, inviting us to explore the serene beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and the dynamic capital of London. Every visit becomes a living lesson, enriching our understanding of the travel industry and the world around us.
Is There Anything Else I Need To Know
