Choose from a range of self-led activities

Plan your perfect visit by choosing from the range of self-guided activities below.

Mix and match based on your preferences or get in touch and we can help organise your day.

Pre-visit for planning

We encourage self-led group leaders to arrange a pre-visit to assist in their risk assessment writing and to gather any other useful information. A meeting with a Ranger to discuss options can be booked in advance if required.

All pre-visits are free of charge.

Booking your self-guided visit

All self-led groups must be booked in advance so that we can help you make the most of your trip.

Please contact the local learning team by emailing at least two weeks before you plan to visit, and they'll get back to you with everything you need to do.
