Hautbois Activity Centre is the perfect place for all members of Guiding to come and explore a venue that has been part of the history of Guiding in the Anglia Region for over 30 years.  

At Hautbois Activity Centre, you can learn new skills, have fun with friends and discover the outdoors on our 28 acre estate. As a venue owned and managed by Girlguiding Anglia the ethos of guiding is essential in all that we do. We also strive to encourage fun and adventure and offer new and exciting opportunities for all.

There are a variety of ways to stay with us: camping, lodging in the Reedcutters’ Village or Hautbois House. Subsequently, whatever your role or section, you will find lots of fun, adventurous activities and experiences at Hautbois.

Above all, our staff will do their best to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and we hope to inspire guiding members of the past, present and future.

Girlguiding Norfolk is the proud owner of the first purpose-built archive and collection building for guiding in the UK.

Situated across the road from Hautbois, resources are not just kept in dusty boxes however! The ARC’s aim is to make resources available to all ages, including you! We offer a range of sessions on various topics- traditions and dressing up are the firm favourites! The ARC also covers living history, what Guides did in the wars and moreover, how the lives of girls and young women has changed in the past 100 years.
