About Marchants Hill

Marchants Hill is on the outskirts of London but once you're there you'll feel you're in the middle of the countryside. There's plenty of space in the 45 acres of grounds for your Brownies and Guides to enjoy, and a fantastic range of thriling adventure activities to get them working as a team and having fun. There's a lake for watersports and opportunities to explore the surrounding countryside of the Devil's Punchbowl.

The supervised evening entertainment programmes include campfire, but if you prefer, you can use our facilities to create your own session: the choice is yours. Accommodation is all en suite in lodges within the centre grounds, which are secured and patrolled every night for your peace of mind.
