National Civil War Centre

Dress up as a civil war soldier, take part in the trial of King Charles I or get your hands on swords, coins and other genuine artefacts from the 17th century! A visit to the National Civil War Centre can bring this fascinating period in history to life for children of all ages. We offer fully facilitated sessions for all key stages, led by experienced, engaging staff. Call us to find out more and arrange a free familiarisation visit.

Add a 'teacher experience'

Please use this space to advise teachers on how to get the most out of their trip. From our research, teachers would particularly like to read about:

  • How well did the trip support your objectives?
  • Were there any particular parts of the venue that were more or less useful for this?
  • Is there anything you wish you’d known before your trip?
  • What were the adverse weather facilities like? (if applicable)
  • Do you have any advice/comments about the facilities e.g. lunch arrangements?
  • What was the quality of the staff led guided session like? (if applicable)
  • What suggestions do you have for pre or post-visit activities

I certify that I have recently taken a group of children/young people to this venue on an educational trip. My 'teacher experience' is a reflection of my genuine opinion and experience of this venue and does not name staff. I do not have any other associations with this venue and they have not offered me any incentives to write it.
