Welcome to Ackers Adventure

An Awesome Outdoor Adventure Activities Centre

Ackers Adventure is a Birmingham based outdoor adventure activity centre, located in the middle of England.

Join in with the fun and excitement by choosing any of our amazing outdoor adventure activities. Our activities and fully qualified staff are ready and waiting for you.

All our outdoor adventure activities take part in over 75 acres of diverse landscape and habitats ranging from open grassland, woodland and marsh cut through by the River Cole, the Grand Union Canal, and Mainline Railways. This creates a fascinating area to have a great outdoor adventure. We are often described as a hidden urban oasis, a green gem that overlooks Birmingham city centre. Coming soon will be the Sustrans cycle route through Birmingham.

If you have never visited us please visit us you will find us very welcoming and helpful. You will be incredibly surprised with what you will find here and what we have to offer. You will not be disappointed. Our outdoor adventure activities take place all over the site which includes:

  • a 100 meter long ski slope, with nursery areas and tobogganing slope
  • several climbing walls and the challenging 25 meter high climbing and abseiling tower from which you can also jump off or zip down!,
  • a residential centre designed for you to stay and be active,
  • a canoeing centre with canoes, kayaks and bellboats,
  • also archery zones, team building areas, jungle challenge course, and adventure trek.

Don’t be put off by our city location. Ackers Adventure is situated just off a major road in to the city, the A45 Coventry Road, Small Heath Highway. Ackers Adventure is easy accessed by car from Birmingham City Centre and the rest of the West Midlands or further afield using the M42 Motorway at Junction 6 by the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), or from the M6 Motorway at Junction 6 using the A38(M) Aston Express Way and then the Middle Ring Road.
