What we offer on a school trip
Established over 40 years ago, this 25 acre site includes a 10 acre lake, alongside the River Thames, between Richmond and Kingston.
In addition to land-based activities, Thames Young Mariners offers water-based activities in a controlled environment, providing a unique space for learning and self-discovery in the natural environment. The centre is recognised as a teaching centre by the RYA and British Canoeing.
Our activities are delivered by qualified and highly experienced outdoor education instructors. Whether you book for one day, a week or a weekly programme, our staff will facilitate a structured outdoor experience and engage with your group to maximise their learning opportunities.

This campaign highlights the benefits of learning through high-quality residential experiences (backed by compelling research created through the Learning Away programme www.learningaway.org.uk ).

Ultimately, this aims to lead to improved resilience, relationships, achievement and brighter, brilliant futures for young people.
