Our acquisition of The Travel Adventure on 1 December 2014 further expands The Real Experience Group’s commitment to offering specialist educational experiences for the UK market in addition to Ireland.
Based in East Sussex, The Travel Adventure provides school, college and university students with a wide range of UK and overseas tours to help inspire and support learning. They also offer leisure breaks for families and adults.
The Real Experience Group was keen to establish a footprint in the UK that could compliment BSGT, the Group’s market leading educational tour company in Ireland.
Karen Smith-Watson, Chief Executive of The Real Experience Group said, “We’re delighted to have The Travel Adventure team on board and look forward to seeing BSGT and The Travel Adventure teams working alongside each other to further enhance their offering and benefit their respective customers”.
We’re delighted to announce the launch of Adventure Central, a new addition to our portfolio that is focused on offering primary school pupils exceptionally good value adventure residential trips.
One of driving forces behind this business is to keep costs to a minimum, which can make these experiences available to more pupils who may otherwise not be able to take part in such a trip, while ensuring quality is not sacrificed in any way.
Unlike some other providers, Adventure Central only employ experienced instructors to facilitate group activities (not trainees or apprentices) and they ensure a good standard of catering and accommodation, often better than typically offered in traditional outdoor centres. The business keeps costs to a minimum by leasing venues for the peak periods when schools want to travel, thus avoiding the cost of running the centre during the long off-peak periods.
Adventure Central is run by a highly experienced team who have been working at a senior level in the primary school adventure residential industry for many years and we’re very pleased to welcome them to the team.
