Tour British Isles

Tour the British Isles | England, Ireland & Wales with SWCC 

“I think this is a wonderful opportunity for our students and community members to get to see the world. There was a time when SWCC offered an international trip every year. Costs and world affairs brought those to an end, but now things are looking much better. This would be a great opportunity for many in our area to visit their ancestral homelands.”
SWCC History Professor, Brian Wright
