Explore the WW1 Trenches

Transport your class back in time and experience the WW1 trenches with a trip to our free World War One virtual trench 360 video. 

Pupils can explore locations from No Man’s Land to an Officers Quarters in full 360, or use a Google Cardboard or similar low-cost VR headset to immerse themselves even more in the history of the First World War. Listen to our soldier guide, Peter, as he describes his role and experiences on the front line. 

Designed to meet UK National Curriculum requirements, this tour takes you on a cohesive trip through the trenches, building empathy and developing understanding of the conditions faced by WW1 soldiers, making this a perfect classroom activity to assist with emotive creative writing or themes in British History.

“… a fantastic resource”

‘It really is a fantastic resource for students learning about conditions in the war and in the trenches – especially for somewhere like Australia where these events are somewhat removed from us.'”
