About Boreatton Park

With 250 acres of space, lakes for watersports, a sports hall as well as classroom space and all the adventure activities you’d expect, Boreatton Park is a popular choice with primary school groups from all over the UK.

Nothing beats a scenic canoe trip along the river Perry as you watch the high flyers on the giant swing overhead. There’s also a great view from the zip wire as you soar through the trees and out over the rafting lake.
