NEW! Opening spring 2018

About Newby Wiske Hall

Located in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, PGL Newby Wiske Hall will be opening in spring 2018 to provide secondary schools in the North of England with an outdoor learning adventure with a difference!

We’ll be developing the centre over the next 6 months to provide an exciting range of adventure activity challenges in the centre grounds, including thrilling watersports on the on-site lake.

The new accommodation will feature comfortable en suite rooms for students and teachers; there’ll also be a sports hall and classrooms available for schools to use.

With the centre located less than an hour from York and Leeds and less than two hours from Newcastle and Sheffield, there will be plenty of great places to explore on a local excursion.

Bookings are now open for next spring and inspection visits will be announced in the next few months. Call us now to check availability and reserve your preferred dates.
