Bawdsey Manor

Inspected as part of NST's Safety Management System

Bawdsey Manor is a beautiful grade II listed building, set on the Deben Estuary with panoramic views of the Suffolk coastline.

The centre is based within easy reach of both Cambridge and London and is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. As the newest activity centre, Bawdsey Manor has undergone a range of enhancements to provide comfortable en suite accommodation for students and teachers. The wide range of activities and 140 acres of parkland and woodland means that there is lots for your students to see and do on-site.

PGL centres are operating under COVID-secure guidelines and all appropriate measures are in place.



Bawdsey is less than 2 hours drive from Norwich, Cambridge and the M25 and direct trains run from Woodbridge (12 miles away) to Liverpool Street Station in London.
