I live beside Grafham Water, and know first hand that the Centre is an excellent place not only to learn to sail but archery, climbing and many more things to do.

Often bike around the reservoir, it's a decent length for a quick ride to get some fresh air. There's also a decent bike shop for rentals and buying stuff in the carpark.

A good place to visit for a walk by the reservoir and along the dam wall. Then you can reward yourself with coffee and cake! Good views and snack choice with efficient staff.
