TRAVEL & TOURISM student trips to
New York

Around fifty million people visit New York each year. Not surprisingly, it frequently features in the top ten tourist cities in the world, and some of its attractions are the most iconic and recognisable buildings in the world. Add in its wealth of hotels, restaurants, shops, bars, nightclubs, music venues, cafés, galleries and museums and New York’s suitability as a destination for a Travel and Tourism educational trip becomes unquestionable.

Students on an Equity college or university trip to New York have a range of specially selected excursions. These include a walking tour of Central Park, where the beauty of this vast city green space is given fresh perspective through highlighting the many films and television programmes that have used it as a location or backdrop.

Other specialist excursions include visits to Madam Tussaud’s New York, The Empire State Building and the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at the Rockefeller Center.
