Several universities use Leeson House as a base for their fieldwork. Geology, Meteorology and Environmental Science post and under graduate groups utilise the spacious accommodation, grounds, classrooms and computer suites.
At certain times of the year, we have space for more University groups. While most groups would choose to be self led, our experienced and highly qualified tutors would be able to lead or offer advice with local fieldwork.
Please get in touch if you’re looking for a University fieldtrip in sunny south Dorset!

Leeson House is the ideal venue for Primary to A Level fieldtrips. The house is a secluded Grade Two mansion situated near Swanage, Dorset on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. It is close to many classic geography, geology and biology fieldwork sites and set within 7 acres of inspiring and diverse grounds.
Leeson House can accommodate up to 80 students and 12 accompanying staff and residential bookings are taken 7 days a week throughout the whole year. We also offer a wide range of day visits and outreach activities.
We’re really glad to be back and running almost as normal! We do still have some residential slots available for this current year. However, week beginning 20th September 2021, applications will go out to all schools on our mailing list for residential dates between September 2022 and August 2023. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please drop us an email and then submit the application form as soon as possible!
We look forward to seeing so many of you back here at Leeson House in the very near future!
