Secret Adventures bring you unusual and off grid adventures and events in the city and beyond. These events are designed to bring a sense of exploration and wonder. We like water, we like fire and we like to explore. Events so far have included kayaking at night under Tower Bridge, adventure films in a tunnel leading under The Thames and lake swims in the city.

We also organise and fund some very special events and adventures in partnership with local charities to help children escape the city. So, come on an adventure, have a great time and help fund some children’s adventures too.
Previous children’s adventures have included canoe adventures on the River Wye, camping in tipis, canal boat adventures and camping adventures on a farm.
These adventures are life-transforming for vulnerable children
