School Tour Activities

Teachers on Arrival catch your breath with a nice cup of tea/coffee and scone while we organise the children into groups etc.

We have over 20 years experience of dealing with School Tours at Tullyboy Farm and the  School Tours Programme has proven to be hugely popular with Schools all over the west and midlands.

The Tour is 3 hours long including lunch which we can provide or you can bring along a picnic.  There are 2 teacher’s lunches free per 20 booked.   We also do a great value special package for Parents to include tour and lunch when accompanying their children on tour.  The guides include Matt the farmer and other mature Guides experienced with children and the tour is fun, educational, cultural and both indoor and outdoors.

Clothing Advice:   Avoid wearing white clothes and runners.  Wear appropriate rain wear and wellies,depending on the weather.  There are paths all around the farm but children will always find that puddle!
