Secret London Walking Tours has launched a new Suffragette City walking tour in London following the September release of the film, Suffragette.
Key Stage 4 History teachers looking for school trip inspiration can book for their students to take the walking tour, which reveals true stories about the women who battled for the vote during World War One.
Students, led by a guide past historic points of interest, can learn about the struggles, the misfortunes and the successes of those who fought for women’s rights.
The tour takes the class through the Westminster and Victoria areas, and points of interest include the Palace of Westminster, Caxton Hall, the Suffragette Memorial in Christchurch Gardens, and the site of the Millicent Fawcett Hall.
Further highlights include Emmeline Pankhurst’s statute in Victoria Tower Gardens, Whitehall, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square.
The tour will also take pupils to some of the lesser known back streets behind Westminster Abbey.
Secret London Walking Tours has a wide range of tours for school groups to book onto, covering a variety of subjects.
English students can learn about famous writers on tours including Shakespeare’s City of London, Bohemians and Bluestockings – Literary London, and The London of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes.
Tours for Drama students are also available. Theatrical London includes a visit to London’s oldest theatre, while students on a Haunted Theatreland tour can discover some of the capital’s most spooky venues.
Teachers are advised that a maximum of 25 students is suitable for a walking tour, although larger groups can hire two guides and split up.
