Discover more about school trips to Washington DC

America’s capital is a city of monuments and museums and is, of course, the perfect choice for a school trip focused on US politics. . From its celebrated symbols of patriotism to its undiscovered neighbourhoods, the sights and sounds of the city inspire millions of visitors every year, and none more so than the impressive White House itself.

Beyond Washington D.C.’s more familiar vistas, the city unwinds into a lively urban centre. And there are plenty of museums to visit, included the Smithsonian Institution and the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Some of the more unusual attractions here include a visit to the FBI Headquarters or a look behind the scenes of the news media at the Newseum.
