5 Reasons to visit Outward Bound UK:

1. Real adventures:

An opportunity to discover and explore the wildest corners of Wales, England and Scotland. You'll scramble, paddle, climb and hike your way to places that you won't find on a regular tourist map.

2. Friends for life:

You'll meet new people from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - as well as from other countries

3. Wild places you can get to:

All our adventures include a bus transfer with pick-up points in Manchester, Birmingham, Penrith, Stirling and Glasgow.

This means you can enjoy the lochs, lakes, forests and mountains that surround our centres, without having to worry about how you get there and back.

4. A good price that includes everything:

Food, transport, accommodation and bedding. You name it, we've got you covered!

You'll even get all the necessary kit and equipment you need to keep you safe dry and warm during your stay. So there's no need to bring a huge bag with you too!

5. Our history

Outward Bound has been around 80 years and has over 30 schools worldwide.

Since then, we've learned a lot about outdoor education, so we're able to give you an experience you won't get from an ordinary summer camp or school.
