School visits to Smeaton’s Tower

A visit to Smeaton’s Tower is a perfect opportunity to develop pupils’ creativity and imagination. It is a particularly useful historic site to visit for STEM subjects, as well as History, Geography and Art. Why not combine your school visit with a trip to the Mayflower Museum, to learn more about Plymouth’s role in the Mayflower story?

A visit can be an integral part of your longer-term planning, supporting subjects across the curriculum. There is so much to do and see during a visit, that the possibilities for follow-up activities are endless.
