Welcome to Clifton College Outdoor Activity Centre

Set in the prestigious surroundings of Bristol’s biggest outdoor sports complex, Clifton College Sports Ground in Abbots Leigh, we are situated just a few minutes from Clifton Suspension Bridge, adjacent to Beggar Bush Lane. Our site is easily accessible with ample free parking.

We are available throughout the year for pre booked groups of children, young people and adults. Sessions are usually two hours in duration but can be tailored to fit timetables and individual requirements.

All activities are led and facilitated by experienced Clifton College Instructors.

Why people love our courses…

Our Daughter’s Birthday Party at the Activity Centre was fantastic! Our instructor was very professional and kept the children engaged (which was some feat!) The party food was exactly what a group of young children would like and there was plenty of it. Thank you again for a great party!

Chloe - age 5,

I wanted to thank you for hosting us yesterday and actually managing to control everyone during the archery and team building activities. Absolutely everyone enjoyed learning a new skill and overall I think the afternoon was a great success! I think the way you explained what we needed to do was great and also you kept everyone informed and focused during the team building activities was really good.

I just wanted to thank you for our outdoor activity session last Saturday. Everyone enjoyed the day and I really appreciated all of your organisational work and management of the morning, especially the flexibility around the time spent on various activities. The archery was really good fun!

I just want to say a big thank you to Ash and Mike for leading our group through a brilliant corporate event in the woods, building shelters, lighting fires and whittling wood. I was really impressed by the knowledge and commitment of both the guys but also by their ability to make today so much fun.

Many thanks for a great day in the outdoors.
