The Hardelot Centre—experience French culture

Located just across the Channel about 50 minutes from Calais, the Hardelot Centre is a convenient, secure and enjoyable residential venue for groups of children and young people. Hardelot has recently been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge.

The centre offers a great opportunity for school groups to have a real French experience. The 8 acres of woodland and on-site facilities make it a great self-contained venue for a short break and the surrounding area offers a wealth of cultural and educational experiences.  There are also opportunities to link with local French schools.

In addition to residential facilities for groups with their own programme of activities, we can help you design a tailor-made package for your group. Young people love the Hardelot Centre because it allows them to explore and to learn about a new culture, themselves and others.

"Thank you for making our French Adventure such a wonderful experience! The Centre is fantastic and the staff are brilliant! Lots of fun and laughter! We will be back!" - June 2014, teacher, Leybourne School
