Helping young people get more out of historical places.

At Go History we think history is amazing, and we want to share that wonder with young people.

Information

We believe that presenting young people with information about a historical place before they visit will encourage more curiosity and willingness to explore. Go History provides easy-to-digest pre-visit information sheets filled with facts and fun questions for over 80 historical places in England. You can download these in written or audio format.

Freedom

We believe that by providing
pre-visit information about a historical place, young people have more freedom to explore in their own way, at their own pace. We find that it helps parents get more out of the trip too! 

Reflection & Reward

We believe that young people respond well to reward, and that post-visit reflection helps them to retain information and promotes further discussion. Go History provides a variety of post-visit sheets and badges to cut out and stick in their very own Go History Passport. There are also certificates to collect once their passports are full.

In addition to access to the downloadable Go History Passport, pre-visit information sheets, post-visit sheets and certificates, you can find links for additional related activities for your young person to enjoy, and links to all the research used to compile the information sheets. When you sign up, you’ll also receive a monthly newsletter to keep you up-to-date. Go History is recommended for young people aged 8 and above, but we are currently developing pages for younger explorers. 

Please note, we are not affiliated with any historical place or organisation.

Members get access to information sheets for the following locations across England. With more being added every week.

You can use the map below to see all of the historical sites we have added so far, or you can find a full list here
