About Liddington

For amazing activities and facilities, bring your Cubs and Scouts to an outdoor adventure camp at Liddington. It’s just minutes from Junction 15 on the M4 near Swindon, making it easy to get to, but once you’re there it feels like you’re in the middle of the countryside.

The extensive grounds are home to a wide range of activities designed to challenge and motivate, including zip wires, giant swings and the tree-top trail, which is unique to this centre. Watersports such as canoeing and raft building take place on the three purpose-built lakes.

There’s plenty of outdoor space for your Cubs and Scouts to enjoy after the day’s activities. Indoor facilities include a cinema room for evening entertainment sessions or your own programme.

Comfortable, modern accommodation is provided in purpose-built blocks which are all en suite.
