Fun times ahead at Grangewaters


WITH half term around the corner, there is no reason to stay at home with nothing to do this May half term.

Grangewaters, the outdoor education centre in South Ockendon, has an action packed week of fun for the whole family to enjoy.

All sessions are available to book singularly for as little as £7 a session, or book two in the same day for just £10. With no upper age limit and special safety equipment to fit even our smallest adventurers – there’s no better reason to enjoy the outdoors with our friendly and qualified team this school break.

For children aged between 6 and 8 years old, it is recommended to take a quick visit to the centre prior to booking to fit safety equipment.

There is plenty of seating for accompanying adults who must stay on site during all sessions – but it’s much more fun to join in!

Grangewaters has plenty of free parking and beverage machines are available.
