Countryside Day Visits

Where?

Our countryside day visits are based at The Quadrangle in Shoreham, Kent.

This site features both forest and field, and a historic barn with courtyard. There is a beautiful stream running along the side of the site.

The Quadrangle is easily reached from London by train (under an hour from London terminals to Shoreham Station).

Thank you once again TGC for your passion, enthusiasm and commitment to instilling a love of the outdoors and respect for nature in our children. 

From the moment we read the letter from the TGC team aloud to the Year 5 class the excitement and buzz about our 'Survival Adventure' was tangible. For most children, this was their first train ride and delighted cries of awe and wonderment.
