A highlight of any school trip to Western France has to be a full day spent at Futuroscope, the intelligent theme park. It's designed with education in mind and is one of France's most visited attractions.
Situated in the heart of the superb Poitou-Charentes region of western France, Futuroscope offers a unique experience for any visiting school. Attractions include Robotics, Species Conservation in Born to be Wild, a revealing look at a natural phenomenon with Ultimate Wave Tahiti, a study of energy sources in The Energy Garden, Cosmic Collisions and more.
In addition to Futuroscope, there is a fascinating selection of visits in and around Poitiers. The bastion of Roman art in France, Poitiers possesses a truly exceptional architectural heritage. Discover 2000 years of history as you stroll down the city streets: Gallo-Roman vestiges, edifices dating back to the early centuries of Christianity, splendours of Roman art, Renaissance masterpieces and handsome 19th-century constructions.
