Developing in the great outdoors

The New Forest National Park is full of wonderful attractions, many of which make use of the diverse, largely unspoilt landscape in the area. There is something to suit every taste, from sports to animal spotting, history to culture.

One of the best things about the New Forest is you can spend some time immersed in the great outdoors. At Avon Tyrrell young people can do just that and learn some amazing skills in the process. The UK Youth Outdoor Activity Centre offers learning and development experiences that are both fun and educational. Visitors can have a memorable experience and master skills they can continue to use for their whole lives.

There are a wide range of different activities to enjoy at the Activity Centre, ranging from orienteering and navigating to zip wires, mountain biking and canoeing. With each one there is an opportunity to learn and develop as well as having fun.

The Activity Centre has been operated by UK Youth for over 65 years. The charity is dedicated to the continuous development of young people and works with over 700,000 people every single year. Avon Tyrrell is one of their most well regarded sites and offers many fantastic opportunities for visitors to enjoy.

The site is open all year round. Many of the activities remain available for the full year too with only specific ones like fishing operating within certain seasons. The calendar of events at the site is packed and even includes activities for the whole family such as bushcraft survival.

If you’re planning a visit to the New Forest Avon Tyrrell and the Activity Centre shouldn’t be missed. You can find out more about the latter on their official website, including details of all activities, courses and events.
