Our Service

We are full time education professionals, working in schools, museums and with home schoolers.  Our school visit service is second to none.  We are the leaders in our field, offering a complete range of educational sessions, planned and delivered to the highest of standards.  Please view our Testimonials to see how highly our visits are valued.  Our sessions are child-centred and interactive and clearly curriculum-linked.  Generally, we occupy all of the children all day – so no gaps for one group when they are waiting for their turn.  We are booked on average 200+ days per year with many schools re-booking year on year and some requesting dates a year in advance.

We are gradually reducing our catchment area and now try to keep our full day visits within one hour’s drive from home.  Reduced full days and half days are available with a forty minute radius.  There’s never been a better time to get The Specialists!

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We have followed all guidance during the pandemic and will continue to do so.  Certain adaptations were made during and after the height but visits are now back to normal.  Please enquire if you need specific reassurance relating to Coronavirus policies.

"I enjoyed holding the weapons!" "I enjoyed playing Nine Men's Morris." "I loved playing Kubb and throwing the other team's pins back." "I liked it when Gregolf told us a story and the children and teachers joined in." "I liked Leagrid showing us the Viking dance."
