24 February – The Deep

This brilliant day out will see you visit Hull's wonderful aquarium, The Deep, which is home to over 5,000 animals. Marvel at amazing marine life including magnificent sharks and rays, the UK’s only pair of Green sawfish, penguins, sea turtles and more.

Go on a journey through prehistoric seas, past tropical lagoons, into the vast open oceans, down to the darkest depths, through the chilly Kingdom of ice and into the future. There is an incredible walk through the viewing tunnel plus an inspiring ride in a glass lift through the 10 metre Endless Ocean tank. On top of this you can enjoy a full schedule of daily shows and even get hands on in a touch pool session with some animals native to British shores.

Depending on how long you spend in The Deep, you will have time to explore the city of Hull at your pleasure. You may like to visit the Hull Minster or the famous Fruit Market area which has seen quite the facelift in recent years. The free Streetlife Museum, just a short walk from The Deep is a fab museum showcasing the history of British transport where you can take a stroll down a typical 1940’s high street.

There are plenty of fun bars, restaurants and cafes to enjoy near by.

The cost of this trip is £22.50 and includes return travel from York St John to Hull and entrance ticket to The Deep. Buy your tickets here.

23 March - Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden

View of Fountains Abbey ruins

On this trip you will be taken to Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, where for centuries people have been drawn to this inspiring place.  From humble beginnings, the magnificent abbey was established by devout monks seeking a simpler existence. The atmospheric ruins that remain are a window into a way of life which shaped the medieval world. You will enjoy a relaxing walk through some picturesque English history at the 900-year-old abbey and Georgian water gardens of this World Heritage Site where you can also see an Elizabethan hall, Cistercian mill and medieval deer park.

This is a trip full of history, with plenty of opportunities for scenic photos!  It also includes return travel, entry to Fountains Abbey and the Water Gardens with tour and 2 Global Campus Ambassador guides for the day. Please note, this trip would be quite hard to do by yourself as it is a difficult destination to reach, so if it is of interest do take up this opportunity to enjoy it.

The cost of this trip is £20 and can be purchased here.

Visit Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden website or The National Trust Website to find out more on these destinations.

27 April - Whitby seaside - Goth Weekend special!

Whitby beach and Whitby Abbey

Whitby is a charming British seaside town, with all the quirks of the English coast, including energetic amusement arcades resting amidst the chocolate box seafront houses and cottages. The waters are usually gentle, making them perfect for paddling (for those with no aversion to the cold) and it is often completely still allowing for paddle boarders and canoeists to wade out under the gorgeous sunsets and, if lucky, amongst pods of dolphin swimming freely.

The town lies under the shadow of  East Cliff,  home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, where Cædmon, the earliest recognised English poet, lived and where, more famously, Bram Stoker took inspiration for 'Dracula'.

Your visit will take place over Whitby Goth Weekend®. Whitby Goth Weekend® is an alternative music festival with thousands of attendees from across the UK and beyond, donning the most fabulous goth fashions. Hordes of people descend upon the city displaying their lifestyle choice or creative flair through, Gothic, Steampunk and sometime downright macabre costumes.

Because Whitby Goth Weekend® is an event unto itself, no other activities are planned for your visit, which has meant we have been able to keep the cost as low as possible whilst providing you with easy access to this goth spectacular. That said, the Global Campus Ambassadors will take those of you who want to climb the 199 steps together, up to the top to enjoy the views and check there really are 199!

The price of this trip is £10, including return travel to Whitby and 2 Global Campus guides for the day. Buy your tickets here.

For more information visit the Whitby tourist board website and the Whitby Goth Weekend website.
