English Heritage Education

Wherever you are in England there is an English Heritage Regional Education Officer who will be happy to offer you advice on using the built environment as an educational resource or basing a local study on an historic building, monument or archaeological site.

Visit our website for information, case studies and ideas for local history projects, including how to base a study on a local monument.

We aim to help teachers at all levels to use the resource of the historic environment. Each year, we welcome half a million pupils, students and teachers on free educational group visits to over 400 historic sites in our care.

We produce a range of publications offering advice and information on using everything from documents and photographs to empty buildings, for teaching about the historic environment in a range of subjects including citizenship, science and art.

Find out more about our publications from our Resources catalogue available from English Heritage Education, Freepost 22 [WD214], London W1E 7EZ or by e-mail on

Every school receives a free copy of 'Heritage Learning' each term and visits to English Heritage sites, supported by information and activity sheets, are free for teachers and school parties.
