About Ardmore Educational Travel

Ardmore Educational Travel is a family business focused on delivering high quality, inspiring and educational school tours for students aged 11-18. We view schools as partners and pride ourselves on our personal and tailor made approach to ensure we deliver tours you want.

The Ardmore Travel group was established in 1984 and since then we’ve had 5 Prime Ministers, enough worldwide epidemics to last a century, a volcanic ash cloud, we’ve moved from typewriters to Ipads, Royal Mail to email and yet we’re still here and are still as passionate about the benefits of cultural interaction as when we started!

With an established reputation worldwide for school travel, we offer something for everyone and as you will see on this site we cover all the academic trips a school could provide. All our programmes are tailored to suit the requirements of your group and we work with partners all over the world to ensure you get the best!

Our Mission

To encourage international communication, understanding and perspective amongst students around the world through safe educational experiences abroad.


To assist students in becoming active global citizens and achieve a global perspective.


As a family business, we pride ourselves on making educational experiences available to as many young people as possible. We treat every client and supplier with honesty, respect and the excellent customer service they deserve. We foster an environment where we are all accountable for our customers’ experience and where teamwork is paramount. Please get in touch should you need any assistance planning your academic trips. We would love to hear from you and would be delighted to visit your school to discuss your trip in person. If your preferred school trip is not included in the brochure, or if you have a particular request, please feel free to let us know and we will give you a personalised quotation according to your needs and budget.
