Henley Fort Outdoor Education Centre

Henley Fort is located on the Hog’s Back high above Guildford and is a Victorian Fort built during the late 19th Century to protect London from invasion by the French. It was later used by the Home Guard in World War 2 as a re-supply depot. It is now an outdoor education facility offering groups a chance to take part in challenging activities or a living historical experience in a stunning and authentic setting.

The centre not only offers a wide range of centre based activities but also the chance to explore the surrounding countryside and the Wey Navigation (canal).

Outdoor experiences and activities

All activities are delivered by our qualified and 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.

Activities available at Henley Fort include: adventure/night walks, archery, canal boating, canoeing, challenge course, climbing and abseiling/bouldering, mountain biking, orienteering, team tasks, woodland skills and the 1940’s World War 2 Home Front experience. Please find our activity descriptions here.
