Avon Tyrrell, UK Youth Outdoor Activity Centre


35e17992698b3cbba6ca01926d7fce19.jpgAvon Tyrrell is UK Youth’s outdoor centre located in the New Forest National Park, offering an exciting range of outdoor adventure opportunities for friends and families. Children can enjoy a half day or full day of activities on a Fundays package, or if you’re looking to kill a few hours and do something as a family, you can join our 90 minute Go Adventure sessions.

Zip wire across the lake, shoot arrows at a target, climb the climbing tower, kayak on the water or build fires and shelters, there are so many things to do… This summer, we’re also running open lake sessions so you can hire a boat and relax on the water too.

While you’re at Avon Tyrrell, we have plenty of facilities you can enjoy free of charge including our trim trail, adventure play area and bouldering wall. Enjoy a scenic walk through the New Forest, hire a bike and ride the on-site bike tracks or pick up a self-guided activity pack.

Our 2018 calendar of events is even more jam packed than ever.

New for June 2018! We have introduced Stand up Paddle boarding and Geocaching to our programme of activities and have rebuilt our Adventure Course so there are more opportunities for young people to experience, learn and develop.

Make the most of the outdoors and camp under the stars, or hire a lodge with the family and use Avon Tyrrell as a base to explore the New Forest. Combine with activities and you ad5ad792128ed4b67d36a13427579bf1.jpgwill have an action packed adventure break - we guarantee you’ll make some great memories!
