Activities and Facilities at Essex Outdoors Mersea
Prepare to be mesmerised.
Our largest capacity centre is situated on the charming Island of Mersea – known locally as ‘The Tropical’ – on the edge of the river Blackwater, just south of Colchester.
With over 60 acres of beautiful grounds and commanding far-reaching views across the estuary, we offer many thrilling Essex Outdoor adventures. And more. The coastal location is quite special – the surrounding marshes and beaches the ideal environment for shore-based studies with access to a small field study centre in a creek nearby, only reachable by boat.
