Porthpean Outdoor Education and Activity Centre

Here at Porthpean Activity Centre, we pride ourselves in delivering safe yet exhilarating activities in an outdoor environment.

Whilst we cater for School Groups during term times, we also welcome Family Groups, Clubs or Individuals who do not mind throwing themselves into an activity with other like minded souls.

Activities for individuals and small parties

Prices from £35 per day per person

Or, should you wish to be even more individual, why not hire a Kayak from us straight from Porthpean Beach?

We also offer multi-activity days for children and their families from £35 in the school holidays. 

  • Duration: 9.30am to 4.00pm
  • Dates: Weekends and school holidays
  • Age Restrictions: 6+ years - under 18 can be left with parental consent form
