 Our Story

In the heart of the picturesque Essex countryside lies Gorsefield - a beacon of exploration, learning, and adventure. Established as an ode to outdoor education and community connection, Gorsefield Rural Studies and Outdoor Activity Centre has grown from humble beginnings into a thriving hub for schools, groups, and individuals seeking a deeper connection with nature.


Our Essence

At Gorsefield, we believe that the natural world holds boundless opportunities for learning and personal growth. Our Edwardian estate, spread across 7 enchanting acres, offers the perfect canvas for our guests to paint their unique experiences, from the thrill of archery to the serenity of guided country walks. The echo of laughter from our adventure playground and the allure of mountain biking trails, only reinforce our commitment to holistic development.


Our Legacy

Proudly owned by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets since 1990, Gorsefield stands as a testament to the power of community and the timeless appeal of the great outdoors. With every group we welcome, with every child that discovers a new passion, and with every memorable sunset shared, our legacy of fostering meaningful connections and unforgettable experiences continues to grow.
