Tailor made school trips to Manchester and Liverpool

liverpool

School trips in Manchester and Liverpool are becoming increasingly popular. With world class museums and galleries such as the Imperial War Museum North, The Tate Gallery, The Beatle Story and the Lowry Centre; famous sporting venues such as Old Trafford and Anfield Football Stadiums; numerous theatres and performing arts venues; and a range of other top class attractions, it is easy to see why so many schools are now deciding to go on educational trips to Liverpool or Manchester.

Fussell’s Travel Services offer a full range of tailor-made packages for Manchester and Liverpool school adventures, with full board accommodation and coach transport all on offer. Our usual choices for accommodation are in YHA Manchester or Liverpool, and both provide facilities that are perfect for schools to use, as well as being right at the heart of either city’s respective attractions.

YHA Manchester

The YHA Manchester is a purpose-built canal side hostel boasting modern facilities that are just perfect for school trips, and recent refurbishment work means that furniture, toilets and showers are among the best you’ll find. Located in the Castlefield area, it’s within easy walking distance of the city centre, and comes equipped with 37 en-suite rooms. YHA Manchester offers plenty of comforts like a TV lounge, games room and free WIFI, and it’s a fantastic base camp for a trip to see something like the famous Museum of Science and Industry, which is always a popular destination.

YHA Liverpool

YHA Liverpool benefits from a £70,000 renovation, improving the bedrooms, showers and toilets to set a high-quality standard. The reception area has also been fully refurbished, as have the lounge and games room areas, so you’re certain to enjoy your stay. YHA Liverpool is about as conveniently situated as you could wish, as it’s a mere five minutes from Albert Docks on the Liverpool Waterfront, which is not only a designated UNESCO World Heritage site of its own accord, but is home to attractions like the Liverpool Wheel. You’ll also be within striking distance of The International Slavery Museum, Museum of Liverpool and more, so there’s an abundance of options for a memorable school trip.
