First time I’ve ever left a review on a site but was so impressed with the staff today that I wanted to feedback and help promote the centre.

Brilliant tuition from a skilled and friendly group leader, a warm welcome from reception staff and a lovely, pressure free space to have our fun. My daughter loved her archery party and we’ll definitely be back for other activities and as a grown up group.

Highly recommended centre, we’re lucky to have it in Leicester.

We brought a group of 19 15 and 16 year old lads to LOPC for the morning for the aerial trekking, powerfan and ziplining. The booking was simple and well managed, especially considering all my questions about what would suit our boys best in February, considering the multitude of activities on offer. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable, accommodating and really good with the lads, who had an excellent time. I would also add that it was excellent value for money and would highly recommend LOPC

My Son and I are very often down on a Saturday morning (The Adventure Club) enjoying a paddle. We started coming as my Son was doing his Silver D of E and the Kayaking / Canoeing was for his Physical section. Initially we started in an Open Canoe together, but then quickly progressed into Kayaks, as my Son didn't find paddling together much of a physical challenge. The staff are very friendly and very experienced, giving great advice on paddle strokes and techniques. There is often a game to be played on the water and my Son and I have even done a canoe See-Saw. Although my Son has now completed his Silver D of E, we have carried on with our Saturday morning Paddle sessions, we have now progressed to soloing open canoes.
The LOPC is a great place near the heart of Leicester city center. It offers a huge array of activities and courses, also catering every bodies needs.
