Britain has had an extremely eventful geological history for a country of its size and this is reflected in its vast array of geological features, its great diversity of rock types and its beautiful and stunning landscapes. Almost three billion years of geological time can be discovered in the ancient rocks of Britain, which form some of the oldest rocks on our planet. Come on this course and embark upon an exciting journey that will encounter catastrophic volcanoes, long-lost oceans, Himalayan-scale mountains, deserts and tropical seas. A large selection of rocks, minerals, fossils, geological maps and books will be available to view on this course. A ‘petrological’ microscope that is specially adapted to look at thin sections of rocks will also be present, to look at typical rock types under the microscope.
There is no supplementary charge for single accommodation on any of our activity breaks, and as normal, we can arrange free transport (on arrival and departure) between the hotel and the bus and railway stations.
Details about all of our activity breaks are readily available - either download a copy from this section, ask for them during you stay, or just telephone the hotel and ask us to forward a programme for whatever activity you are interested in.
