About Grosvenor Hall 

Grosvenor Hall is a complete indoor and outdoor education facility set in the grounds of a former manor house in Ashford, Kent within easy reach of London and international transport links.

The hall, originally called Bockhanger Hall, was built by James S. Burra, an Ashford banker. Burra was a keen collector of trees from around the world and some of his collection still stand in the impressive grounds of Grosvenor Hall. Before opening its doors as a Kingswood centre in 2010, the hall was most recently a police training centre with purpose built accommodation blocks and classrooms. These specialist facilities, including a mock courtroom have been transformed to cater for our comprehensive range of educational programmes.

It is this unique combination of historical buildings, modern purpose-built facilities and the state of the art activity park that make this centre a hidden gem within urban Ashford, and one of the best facilities of its kind in Europe. From the moment our visitors enter the gates, they are immersed in the high-adrenaline excitement of the centre as they pass the £1m adventure park. As they explore the centre our guests continue to discover everything Grosvenor Hall has to offer; including an indoor heated swimming pool and a 25,000 sq ft sports hall which caters for a wide range of indoor activities.

Grosvenor Hall is ideally situated for excursions to London and the UK’s top attractions and its central location combined with the diverse range of programmes available attract visitors from all over the world year after year.
