Bring your class to Creekside Discovery Centre for an adventure they will never forget.

Our team of experienced and friendly environmental teachers encourage curiosity, enthusiasm and excitement in the topics studied, the local area and the wider world.

We bring science, geography and history to life through hands-on experiences in the local environment. Programmes at Creekside Discovery Centre allow participants to explore, make discoveries, propose hypotheses, carry out investigations and draw conclusions all whilst engaged in an exciting outdoor activity.
