If you are visiting the north of England and looking for adventure, then you have come to the right place.
North East Guides are based in Tyne and Wear and offer training courses to: school and youth groups, individuals, families, local authorities, other public sector bodies and commercial organisations.

We work almost anywhere in the North, from the Lakes and North Pennines to the Cheviots and Borders. We are happy to travel, however, and will provide guided mountain days in most parts of the UK (given the availability of mountains!)
