Really well organised and knowledgeable staff (July 2021 - Secondary School)




Excellent venue and curriculum. The staff are very knowledgeable and great at handling our class. (March 2020 - Primary School)




Fantastic venue- workshop leaders were experienced and professional. Children fully engaged. (January 2020 - Primary School)




(September 2019 - Primary School)




It was a great trip, despite the instructions on how to find the location it was still slightly tricky. I don't think I would do the trip again or at least pay for it as Clifton Lodge Staff ran a lot of the workshop and I think next year we could do a similar thing on our own. (July 2019)




Despite the directions given by the venue it was slightly difficult to find as it is situated in the centre of the park. The LookOut centre itself was very spacious and pleasant, however, the acitivties were mainly carried out by ourselves with little input from the staff on site. I don't think it was worth the money and next year we could do the trip again on our own. (July 2019 - Primary School)




(May 2019 - Secondary School)




The staff was really interactive with the children and they have a really good knowledge about the animals. Children love learning about toads and nudes, birds and insects. (April 2019 - Secondary School)
