Glasbury House is an early Georgian Manor House standing in seven acres of grounds on the banks of the River Wye and has been owned by the London Borough of Redbridge and operated as an Outdoor Education Centre since 1963.
The Centre also offers a range of Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition opportunities. Course dates are by arrangement and expedition prerequisites and current details can be found in our "downloads" section.
The Centre is situated in a small village between Hereford and Brecon close to the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and is ideally placed for a wide variety of activities using the Brecon Beacons National Park and surrounding area.
The overall aim of the Centre is to enrich the education of students and whilst all courses fulfil many national curriculum requirements, they have in their own right a positive life-long impact on the general development and education of all participants.
By involving young people in outdoor and adventurous activities, challenging learning situations can be used to develop qualities such as self-knowledge and self-esteem whilst creating an awareness of the environment and the needs of others. The Centre offers a wide variety of courses throughout the year, which are led by experienced and qualified staff.
