Calshot Activities Centre


Calshot Activities Centre is one of the largest outdoor adventure centres in Britain, with a reputation for excellence and operating to the highest standards.

Situated in an unique position on the shores of the Solent, its magnificent setting gives immediate access to the country's most popular watersports location. Ashore, historic hangars accommodate a state of the art climbing complex, the only indoor velodrome in Southern England and a dry ski slope.

Calshot offers residential and non-residential courses in an unrivalled number of exciting water and land-based activities, including: Dinghy Sailing, Windsurfing, Canoeing, Powerboating, Rock Climbing, Track Cycling, Skiing, Snowboarding and Archery.

The Centre specialises in courses for all ages, from 5 to 60+, and all abilities, from beginner to advanced.

For those feeling less energetic, the 16th Century Calshot Castle, built by Henry VIII, is open to the public from April to October.

And why not finish off your visit with a drink, snack or meal in the Café Bar, which offers superb views of The Solent and Isle of Wight.
