About Liddington

Liddington is one of our largest centres and is well placed for students to enjoy the best of what PGL has to offer. It’s conveniently located in the countryside but with easy motorway access to London and the airports serving it.

There's a wide choice of exciting adventure activities in the centre grounds, including watersports on the two purpose-built lakes and the unique tree-top study trail. Other facilities include several football pitches, a floodlit sports pitch and a brand new sports barn. Inside, the centre has plenty of space for relaxing and modern facilities to enjoy including en suite accommodation.

Students can explore London on a day trip from Liddington or visit other attractions such as Bath with its Roman baths, Stonehenge for its ancient monument or Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
