Residential Activity Centres Overseas

Suitable for Primary, Secondary School and College Students

With residential school trips meeting various national curriculum criteria, it is hardly surprising that so many schools choose to take their children away on the multi-day adventurous activity trip. While the UK has a huge range of centres to choose from, there is also plenty of opportunity to travel further afield and combine the exciting experience of a multi-activity residential, with a cultural experience in another country.

Travelling by coach, air or even ferry, there are plenty of places within easy travel distance that your students can visit to get all the benefits of a typical residential and perhaps improve their language skills.

Some overseas activity centres are run by UK companies who have expanded their offering into other countries, while others are owned and managed locally. In all cases, the centres are professionally run and have years of experience in welcoming UK school groups to enjoy fun and safe residential activities.

We have picked a selection of the best overseas activity centres on offer, in a variety of European countries, covering a huge selection of different activities, and suitable for a range of budgets.
