  • Marchants Hill for Youth Groups

Youth residential centre in Surrey

Marchants Hill residential adventure centre is close to London, but once you’re here you’ll think you’re in the middle of the countryside. Located on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty, known as The Devil’s Punchbowl, there are plenty of activities for your group to enjoy, including watersports on the purpose-built lake.

The sports hall and common room are fantastic indoor spaces for evening activities or for your group to chill-out after a busy day of adventure sessions. There’s a choice of en suite accommodation: in chalets in the centre grounds and in Bethany House, a converted convent building which sleeps up to 94 guests – ideal for sole occupancy for larger youth groups.
