Mendip Activity Centre is the ultimate outdoor adventure playground. We've been delivering adventurous outdoor activities for nearly 40 years, growing from humble beginnings to the largest outdoor activity provider in the South West!

Mendip Activity Centre
Our centre is located between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare and is only five miles from the M5. It is the perfect place to discover the wonders of the Mendip Hills! On top of the many activities we offer from our site, we also use a couple of local locations to provide watersports and our more advanced caving sessions utilise the vast network of caves hidden within the hills.

Our qualified, experienced instructors are the best in the business and are experts at leading customers through any of our activities. Self-led activities, individual spaces, private sessions, and birthday parties are available to book online.

Mendip Activity Centre offers exciting, fun team away days, perfect for team building, company days out, and stag and hens. Plus, high-quality outdoor education provision for schools and youth groups (activity days, residentials, DofE expeditions and Gold residentials).
Refuel at the Alpine Lounge
Whilst onsite, refuel at the Alpine Lounge, a cafe-diner serving super dirty, loaded burgers, hot dogs, and fries all with an alpine-inspired twist. If you’re an early bird, check out the infamous breakfast menu too and of course coffee and cakes are served all day, everyday.

If you’re worried about fitting all the activities you want to try into one visit, we’ve got the solution! Check out our family campsite Mendip Basecamp, relive the joy of an adventure camp with your family, and have activities right on the doorstep. Our campsite is also home to a country pub, cider garden, live entertainment, and campsite shop/cafe. Starting from the May half term, we open up our land every weekend and school holiday as a public campsite to allow you to stay and play!
