Wildside Activity Centre
We offer a great variety of educational sessions, activities and narrowboat trips for all age groups (see our Activity Options pages). We welcome people of all abilities and will do our utmost to adapt our programmes to meet their needs wherever possible.
We can also offer many of our activities on an outreach basis at your school or community venue.
The key message is that we want to tailor our sessions to ensure they meet the needs of your group, so it is always best to email us or ring to discuss your plans.
Once we are clear on the details of your requested booking, we will ensure that sessional staff are available for your preferred date(s). When the staffing is in place, we will send you a booking form which must be returned for our insurance purposes and to complete the booking process.
Costs vary depending on the length of a session, numbers participating and any additional requirements. Our guide price for a half-day of activities requiring one worker is normally £150. The guide price for a boat trip is from £120 – £200.
If cost alone is a barrier to using the Centre, please discuss it with us. From time to time, we are able to raise funds from trusts and charities to help particular groups or provide sessions on specific topics.
For Meeting Room hire, please ring or email to check availability.
For Holiday Programmes the booking process is similar and is outlined on the relevant programme with costs and dates. All boat trips must be paid in advance.
