Supposed to see Franny Drake’s Golden Hind as part of a history trip but the weather was too windy and it wasn’t safe for the coach to cross the Humber Bridge
Some kind of Geography trip to the seaside to study coastal erosion but a car crashed into the coach en route, ambi-copter came, was all pretty serious but no casualties. Got there in the afternoon and just pissed about on the beach for a bit.
School-based ones were always the worst. My wife went to an all girls’ catcholic school in SW London and they thought one of their school trips was to Thorpe Park. Turns out that was bollocks and they had to go to a different part of the school and talk to a 90 year old nun.
Once had a geography lesson that involved walking from school through the village I lived in; in an hour long loop. We passed my house on the way back after returning to school, school then ended and I then had to walk back home again.
Best was Magma Science Adventure Centre it had a fire tornado.
My Primary school did anual trips to the local library where we got to go into the archive room. We also had a trip around a local power station and one of those “scare straight” tactics where they took us to visit the local police station where we got to see inside one of the holding cells.
