The warmest of welcomes awaits you at Pioneer Centre.

Pioneer Centre is the UK's premier recognised specialist venue for superb outdoor activity residentials and holidays and conferences for groups.*

Situated in stunning countryside on the edge of the Wyre Forest, we are within easy reach of Birmingham and the national motorway network.  Together with ACUK the Pioneer Centre has a combined experience of over 55 years in inspiring and motivating people, groups and organisations.

Since its complete re-build through 2005-2009, Pioneer Centre offers unrivalled all en-suite accommodation under one roof for groups of 12 to 300 seeking 'best value' for their residential event. There's even free WiFi across most of the centres buildings.  The six en-suite accommodation wings also allow a number of smaller groups to remain separate, secure and individually cared for whilst taking full advantage of Pioneer Centre’s outstanding Canadian theme.

Welcoming nearly 20,000 guests each year the 25 acre Canadian themed site is perfect for school & youth adventure / training / curriculum residentials and conferences or group holidays.

We have been awarded the LOtC Quality Badge and are AALS licensed to deliver a full range of activities - from a single instructed activity session to a full-on adventure to remember.

The Centre has been designed to incorporate access to visitors with impaired mobility with most accommodation and meeting rooms at ground floor level.  The Centre also offers bedrooms equipped with wet room style en-suite shower rooms using Pressalit Care System’s track with support arms and shower chair.  In 2014 we improved the service we offer to include a couple of profiling beds, a mobile hoist and cot sides all available on request.  We have also fitted a ceiling hoist in two bedrooms.

Guests also enjoy excellent dining facilities where all dietary requirements are catered for, professional, inspirational and friendly trainers and staff plus a range of activities from caving to high ropes challenges.

A visit to the Pioneer Centre offers a premiere residential course, meeting or holiday at an extremely competitive price.  We also run a range of cost effective mini breaks and longer stays that can be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to our 'all weather' design and seasonal discounts.

Conference, Curriculum enrichment or simply fun? You choose.

Please feel free to get in touch for an informal chat or no obligation quote.

We specialise in the education, charity, church, community and faith sectors and are also the only centre of this kind in the UK run by a registered charity.
