Why visit Hill End?
Outdoor learning is hugely important for education, health and wellbeing at any time but especially now. It will be one positive outcome from the current situation if people are able to get outside more often because it is also the safest place to learn.
We appreciate that things won’t be back to ‘normal’ anytime soon and what we do will be different for some time. Some of our activities have needed to be adapted, and we are working with our customers to ensure we meet any specific requirements.
So if you are looking to do more outdoor learning, need more space, or anything else – please do make a booking or get in touch to discuss how we might be able to help.
