Hilltop Outdoor Centre

What will students see and do?

Set in 26 acres of picturesque woodlands on the north Norfolk coast in Sheringham, Hilltop Outdoor Centre is a family-run independent outdoor activity centre. It offers a unique experience to an array of visitors, from school trips to adult team-building training and children’s birthday parties. The site also has modern and comfortable accommodation and facilities, with two themed centres – the rustic Woodland Lodge and the coastal style Seaview House.

The centre has attained the Learning Outside of the Classroom (LOTC) badge and offers an exciting array of outdoor adventure activities such as high ropes, a 15m climbing wall, assault courses, a super swing, archery, crate stacking, abseiling, mountain biking, zip wires and The Amazing Air Jump – a 16m jump into a giant airbag and the first of its kind in England! Hilltop also offers plenty of discovery education such as bushcraft, survival skills, shelter building, orienteering, pond dipping and a closer look at the rocky seashore, woodland creatures and coastal erosion.

Travel arrangements

Hilltop Outdoor Centre is situated approximately two miles south of Sheringham, in Old Wood. It can be accessed from the A148 main road between Cromer and Holt.

From Holt, follow the signs along the A148 towards Cromer. Avoid the temptation to turn off the A148 towards Sheringham along the A1082 but rather continue for a further half a mile passing Pretty Corner on your left. You should then encounter signs to turn left for Hilltop into a layby. The entrance to Hilltop is on the left, approximately a quarter of a mile down the layby.

From Cromer, follow the signs along the A148 towards Holt. Pass through Aylmerton and after passing the Roman Camp Public House on your left, continue. Avoid the temptation to turn off the A148 towards Beeston Regis.

Almost immediately after this, you should encounter signs to turn right for Hilltop into a layby. The entrance to Hilltop is on the right, approximately a quarter of a mile down the layby.

Please drive carefully and slowly onsite. Look out for the official brown tourist sign marking Hilltop and the Recycling Centre.
