New York, the “Big Apple”, is the most incredible place for a school travel trip. With experiences to stimulate every one of your senses, New York is a 24 hour, full-on city with an overwhelming number of activities and sights. Be dazzled by Times Square, ascend the iconic Empire State Building and cruise across to the symbolic Statue of Liberty - and, of course, shop ‘til you drop at Macy’s and Bloomingdales.
We offer a range of fantastic hotels or hostels in Manhattan so you can stay in the "buzz" of the city. For superb value we can offer the Holiday Inn Express in Meadowlands, a short train ride from the centre of Manhattan. Please note that bed sharing is common in New York so advise us if you prefer not to have this option.
