You don’t have to go abroad for an inspiring school watersports tour! Choose our school watersports tour to Holme Pierrepont and enjoy all the National Water Sports Centre has to offer!

Your students will love the opportunity to have a go at kayaking or stand up paddle boarding, and you’ll never forget the thrilling experience of white water rafting! This is a fantastic choice for a tour that allows all students to try a variety of activities that they may not previously have had the chance to enjoy and is also a great option for teambuilding purposes.

You’ll be able to stay onsite at Holme Pierrepont Country Park, where you’ll be just a short walk from all of your activities. The park is famous for its spectacular regatta lake, so make sure you take the time to enjoy a walk or run around the lake during your stay.

Don't take our word for it …

We had used Halsbury for our previous tours and have always been impressed with the level of support and communication from Halsbury. We had everything we needed for the tours to run faultlessly. It feels like we are working together to really get the best out of the tour. You feel like partners more than customers. I would definitely recommend Halsbury! The support to the tour leaders is so good, and they are always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. — The Forest School, July 2023
