I have been here few times, more recently to train for a 100km walk. So we walked around the reservoir twice. (18.5miles). Proved very useful and helpful for our longer walk due at the end of May 2017

Did a morning taster session of dinghi sailing. Asbsolutely loved it. Very good instructors who are very approachable and good at giving positive coaching.

Very nice lake, with a well maintained, half-tarmac, half-dirt, half-asphalt road (suitable for walking, jogging, mountain bikes and hybrid bikes) that is a bit over 10 miles long. Many parking lots around the lake (although parking fee is a bit steep at most parking lots),...More

My wife and I visited Grafham Water Centre on Sunday 26th March 2017. We love walking so for our first real venture out of 2017 we chose to walk around Grafham Water, as the 10 mile trek seemed ideal for us. It cost us £3...More

Hi I'm planning a special family birthday party in mid May and would like to bring 20 people 5 years to 73 years of age to Grafham Water for party of walks and games etc. We would like a bar b que picnic and wondered if that was possible to do this near the centre.

There is plenty of space near to the centre so shouldn't be a problem.

All the car parks have barriers that stop caravans parking there so I am guessing that you will not be able to park your motorhome. Saying that I am sure you will find somewhere to park if you go around the lake and look... More
My husband is participating in a fishing competition for 5 hours at Grafham. Is it safe for me to hang around there alone? I was thinking of hiring a bike and doing a few laps around the lake as I love cycling and I am fit. Many thanks
