Welcome to Whitehough

We take education out of the classroom and into the great outdoors… And we make every experience one to remember!

Whitehough Outdoor Centre

Operated by Burnley FC in the Community, Whitehough Outdoor Centre is a 22-acre outdoor education facility nestled in the enchanting Pendle countryside.

Sleeping up to 64 on-site in dormitory-style rooms, we can accommodate both large and small groups. The site also includes two classrooms, a large dining room, an extensive camping field, a 40-seater conference suite and on-site activities.

Discover Our Activities

Our activities are delivered on both land and water by qualified Outdoor Elements instructors, approved with the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority. We believe young people can be inspired by outdoor education and we want all our visitors to thrive in this unique environment.
