About Marchants Hill

A beautiful countryside setting that’s close to the capital, Marchants Hill adventure activity centre is popular with Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade groups from London and the surrounding areas.

It’s a residential adventure experience that’s sure to delight you and your group. We’ve got everything to get you outdoors and active with a variety of activities on land and water.

Watch them support and encourage each other as they climb, abseil or make that leap of faith for the trapeze bar. Help them build a raft that will make it to the other side of the lake without falling apart! We have everything to challenge, motivate and engage your young people.

There are some stunning hiking opportunities around the centre too. Located within an area of outstanding natural beauty, it’s a great environment to experience the outdoors at its best!

After an action-packed day, relax in our comfortable, en suite accommodation.
