Campsites we use
Hargreaves Scout Campsite and Activity Centre is suitable for all sections within the Scouting and Guiding movements.
We also welcome other youth organisations who would like to come and camp with us.
We pride ourselves on the happy, safe and relaxed atmosphere here.
Hargreaves is an extremely good base for a wide variety of local activites including 10-pin bowling, ice skating, swimming, canoeing, sailing, hiking, etc. In addition to all the local activities all public transport connections for London and the Coast are just minutes down the road. We are 25 minutes away from the centre of London and we believe that we are one of the closest sites to all the London attractions, including the London Eye.
