Field Studies Council – Wales

There is no substitute for first-hand experiences in nature. FSC school trips bring classroom learning to life to develop skills such as resilience and independence; and building relationships with peers.

FSC Rhyd-y-creuau is set in the beautiful, rugged landscape of the Snowdonia National Park, yet close to secluded wooded valleys, rocky shores, beaches and traditional seaside resorts. The 2.2 hectare estate includes a football pitch, woodland, biodiversity garden, campfire area, teambuilding challenges, stream and ponds. We are a short drive south from the A55 North Wales Expressway, making us easily accessible throughout the year from most areas. Nearest railway station is at Betws-y-coed, a simple flat walk of around 1km.

FSC Dale Fort is set in a spectacular location high on the cliffs within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, giving superb views over the sea. Built in 1856 to defend the Milford Haven waterway against invasion, it has been a field centre since 1948. It is ideally located for coastal studies and for accessing Skomer Island with its renowned resident sea bird populations, including puffins, guillemots and razorbills. Rocky shore, salt marsh, grassland and woodland are a short walk from the centre and a wide variety of teaching sites are within 30 minutes’ drive – these include rural and urban settlements, coastal landscapes and tourist honeypot areas.
