London Stadium Case Study

Exciting Education worked with London Stadium to utilise their unique opportunity as a sporting legacy venue to further inspire the next generation and provide a first-class education product for school groups.

ArcelorMittal Orbit Case Study

During 2017, we worked with the team at ArcelorMittal Orbit to support their marketing needs and educational programme design linked to London’s most talked about attraction, – The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit!

Coldharbour Mill Case Study

The historic Coldharbour Mill needed a five year education vision with clear strategic goals that reflected their mission to provide ‘heritage and education woven together’ for learners of all ages.

Hear what our customers have to say…

With our sporting history and legacy from the London 2012 games, we had a unique opportunity to further inspire the next generations by enhancing our existing tour product into a first-class education product for school groups.

Having looked around the market, we chose Exciting Education because of their experience in both education and tourism. As our tour also includes multiple sporting areas, in addition to our usage of technology, their ability to offer a completely bespoke and flexible service was crucial for us.

Stadium Tours Manager, London Stadium

I cannot speak highly enough of Rebecca and her team! The resources were delivered to a very high standard and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

What made this experience most exceptional was the team’s dedication to their clients, always prompt and helpful in their replies, even in unsocial hours and over weekends!

Very good value for money and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to expand or upgrade their educational offering. 5 stars!!!
