Great Tower

greatTowerViewClose to the shore of Lake Windermere in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Great Tower Scout Activity Centre is an ideal base for exploring this famous area. Set in 250 acres, the centre offers both sizeable woodland to explore as well as natural rocky crags for climbing.

Great Tower offers a wide range of both land and water based activities, including archery, low and high ropes, climbing and abseiling, sailing and canoeing. With the opportunity to build in as many or as few instructed activities into your visit as you like, the Great Tower team can work with you to plan the perfect experience for you and your group.

Great Tower has extensive camping areas for both large and small groups and also offers five accommodation lodges.  You can also talk to us about how we can support your catering and transport needs for a fuss-free stay.  Planning a trip to the Lake District and taking part in some of Great Tower’s many activities is possible all year round.
