Grangewaters Outdoor Education Centre

Grangewaters is a year-round outdoor education centre set in Thurrock's countryside. Covering more than 70 acres, we have natural woodland, open grassland, 2 lakes, activity areas and accommodation.
We work to ensure that all our activity areas are accessible. A range of specialist equipment is on hand, such as hoists and activity equipment designed for people with mobility issues. Accessible accommodation is available for residential visits.
The centre is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and for pre-booked activities at weekends.
Our office is open from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, for bookings and enquiries.
