Northern England Activity Centres

Residential School Trips North

From the Peak District National Park, up to the Kielder Forest. And from the Lake District on the West coast to the North York Moors on the East coast, at Plan My School Trip we work with the best providers of residential education for school trips in the North of England. On this page we feature study centres, fieldwork specialists, and of course plenty of outdoor adventure companies.

Schools in the north of England have plenty of choice when it comes to outdoor activities. The spectacular landscapes of the Peak and Lake Districts, long stretches of coastline, and rolling hills of the Pennines provide great locations for outdoor activity centres. Plenty of established companies have created exceptional facilities to enable high quality outdoor education in these wonderful natural environments.

We have helped hundreds of schools in the north of England discover new and exciting outdoor activity centres, and we look forward to assisting many more. If there is something in particular you would like to achieve with your group, head to the tailor made trips page or give us a call to discuss your requirements.
