Slovenian students stay in Peak District for UK visit

Gully Mouse welcomes the students from Slovenia to Gulliver’s Kingdom

A group of students from a school in Slovenia have spent a week at Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath as part of a special trip to the UK.

15 Y9 pupils, who are aged 14 and 15 years old, and their teachers were visiting Derbyshire from Antona Tomaža Linhart School in Radovljica which is in Upper Carniola region of northern Slovenia.

The group used Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath as their base to travel around Derbyshire and beyond visiting schools in Buxton, Sheffield and Chesterfield as well as taking in the sites of the Peak District during their one week stay.

Hannah Marsden, resort manager at Gulliver’s Kingdom, said: “It was lovely to welcome the group of students from Slovenia who had a wonderful time with us as they discovered the best this area has to offer. They used our resort, staying in our themed accommodation, as a base to explore the Peak District and local sites as well as visiting other schools.

“They had a great time and all commented on how impressed they were with the accommodation and location at Gulliver's Kingdom, as well as how the staff team here really went above and beyond to help them have a great stay, We hope to welcome them back again next year.

“Educational visit and residential stays is a growth area for us as a business and we have seen a lot more interest in recently as schools, groups and parents look for more cost effective options. Not only do we provide accommodation and food here at Gulliver’s for these trips, but we can also offer a range of fun and learning activities such as bushcraft, shelter building and fire lighting as well as arts and crafts, nature tails and more.”
