QE2 Activity Centre offers a wide range of accessible activities, on the Hamble River, in the woods of Manor Farm Country Park, in our grounds and in our sports hall. Our aim is to have something for everybody - something that is challenging but achievable. Activities are led by appropriately qualified and experienced staff. You can find out more about safety during activities here.
We have a range of boats including single kayaks, double kayaks, open canoes, rafted open canoes and a wheelchair accessible pontoon boat. We also have a bunch of barrels, poles and ropes so you can build your own raft! The Hamble River provides around five miles of tidal water - sheltered waters upstream, ideal for canoes, kayaks and rafts, while the lower reaches of the river are filled with three and a half thousand yachts and the villages of Bursledon and Hamble.
In the Centre's sports hall there is an archery range and set of climbing walls. In addition to standard bows we have some modified bows which allow everyone to take part in archery. Our climbing walls include a mixture of simple walls and some more challenging walls plus swings and even a via ferrata! The sports hall can also be used for multisports - badminton, table tennis, pool, plus a skittle alley.
Around the Centre we have a ropes course and zipwire. The ropes course is challenging which means that it is not going to be accessible to everyone. Talk to us about you can do and we'll make sure that you can get involved. The zipwire is accesible for just about everyone. We also have a whole range of team challenge activities geared towards all abilities.
The 400 acre Manor Farm Country Park is an ideal environment for a range of outdoor activities including bushcraft, orienteering and geocaching. It is also great for just getting outand about and exploring, finding out more about the natural environment and the rich history of the area.
There’s a wide range of activities available, all designed to challenge and stretch you, but geared to a range of abilities so that there really is something for everyone . . .
