South East England Activity Centres

Residential study centres School Trips London & South East

We know some schools based in Central London struggle to get very far out of the capital as the journey times are prohibitive. For this reason we chose to work with a handful of high quality residential study centres located close to the M25, at all compass points from the centre of the city, so if you are on a budget you want something close to home, we can help.

Further out and the choice of venues grows significantly. We continue to recommend the excellent Path Hill outdoor centre on the southern edge of the Chilterns, Adventure Central on the South Downs, and In2Action near Horsham in West Sussex. If Hampshire is in your search area then we have more school activity residential trip venues than you could wish for. Schools around Portsmouth, Southampton or Bournemouth really are spoiled for choice, the three excellent venues on the Isle of Wight alone.
