About Simonside Outdoor Adventure

We offer a range of land and water based activities across our three centres:

  • Simonside Climbing Wall

We pride ourselves on high standards of instruction, well maintained clothing, equipment and facilities that are accessible for all.

We are part of South Tyneside Council's Outdoor Education Service, which also incorporates our sister centre on the shores of Coniston Water in the Lake District National park, Thurston Outdoor Education Centre.
