We've been working with New Forest Activities for many years, we know that they work also with the Prince's Trust charity directly. The reputation that they have, and the openness and friendliness that they have, not just with the young people, but also for us as staff and the support that they provide us means that we consistently, continually come back to them.

"All staff were very helpful"

All staff were very helpful with my queries prior to booking and on arrival we were welcomed and made to feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend New Forest Activities who were very professional and helpful. Thank you.

"Always well organised and fun"

Always well organised and fun, with great instructors. I took over my Summer school from a previous colleague and BattleZone is the only thing I have not changed as it is great, year after year.


The children from Brockenhurst Primary School had such a brilliant day on their trip to New Forest Activities. The leaders and activities were great and the children can't stop talking about what a fantastic day they had.

"Fantastic experience"

Fantastic experience for students yet again. Brilliant activities delivered in the right way for what we wanted to get out of the sessions.

"The students loved it!"

Our booking experience was thoughtful, it was flexible, was sensitive to the needs of the children that we brought and was really easy.

"We visit every year"

We have been booking canoeing and BattleZone at New Forest Activities every summer for the last few years. Instructors are fantastic and both pupils and staff always have a brilliant time.
