Highlight of the holiday! We had a fantastic afternoon at the centre and were extremely well looked after by Jenny and Elliot. The abseiling was awesome and we felt very safe at all times. Boys loved the assault course, shooting and archery. Would highly recommend.

Yes there is wifi at the Venture Centre however it can be inconsistent. If wifi is important to you there are hotels in town where the wifi will be much more reliable
