About Liddington

As one of our largest residential adventure activity centres, Liddington offers acres of space for your Boys’ or Girls’ Brigade group to enjoy, in a safe, friendly and fun environment.

Located near Swindon, off the M4, Liddington is open all year round and is a great location to meet other like-minded groups and experience some fantastic adventure activities on land and water.

Watch their confidence soar on the giant swing, help them work together to build a raft that floats, see them shine as they master their canoe on one of our purpose-built lakes.

There are some great facilities for your group to take advantage of too, including football pitches, netball courts, a floodlit sports pitch, as well as meeting spaces and a games room that provides a popular social space for your young people to use when the day’s activity sessions are over.

Comfortable en suite accommodation is provided for groups of all sizes.
