Why are Marwell Activity Centre great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
At Marwell Activity Centre we aim to deliver a personal service to help you plan your event. We pride ourselves on using our experience and knowledge to help build an enjoyable visit for all. We are available via email or on the phone for any questions you may have or information you may need prior to the event.
