About Marchants Hill

In a beautiful rural setting close to the capital, Marchants Hill adventure activity centre is popular with Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade groups from London and the surrounding areas. We have everything to get you outdoors and active with a variety of activities on land and water. Watch your group support and encourage each other as they climb and abseil, or help them build a raft to get to the other side of the lake.

There are 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! And after an action-packed day, relax in our comfortable, en suite accommodation.
