“Alaways been a family favourite/now better than ever!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Hengistbury has always been a favourite with our family. However, the opening of the new Education Centre has made this even more appealing for families and friends of any 'outdoor environment.' It really brings the Head alive and enhances our understanding of this brilliant natural treasure on our doorstep. A MUST for all outdoor enthusiasts. Please take your kids and enjoy!

“Excellent multi-activity day”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

My 8 year old went for the day and had a wonderful time. Small groups, excellent ratio of instructors to children. He enjoyed canoeing, building a raft and rock climbing. Excellent value for money that left me with a very happy (and tired) boy!

“Excellent power boat course”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Was given a power boat course. Because of my inefficiency, took a long time to book it in, but the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The 2 day course was fun, interesting and informative and had a very good personal approach. Recommended.
