Norfolk Lakes Adventure Centre has become our water sports and outdoor pursuits flag ship on the eastern side of the UK. Norfolk Lakes is located on the edge of the village of Lyng, situated on the River Wensum only 11 miles north west of Norwich.

The facilities on offer to schools are absolutely superb with accommodation units on either side of a very large indoor facility which offers a range of indoor activities, common rooms for teachers and pupils, dining facilities and a teachers bar.

Like all our centres we expect this centre to sell out within a few years of opening so we strongly recommend schools to book as soon as possible to reserve their preferred dates.
