Swinton Lock Activity Centre is a Community Based Arts, Education and Activity Centre based in an idyllic location by the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Canal near Mexborough.
We provide a wide range of activities for young people including Fishing, Arts and Crafts, Digital Art, Boat Handling, Construction and Mechanics and the most popular by far, Spray can Art. An extensive Adult Programme runs successfully alongside, covering a diverse range of activities. You can choose from Boat Handling, Pottery, Jewellery, Fine Art, Glass Art, Arts and Crafts and much more. The centre and one of the two boats is access inclusive, making it an ideal place for groups of all abilities.
Our location, facilities and ample parking also make Swinton Lock an ideal location for meetings, conferences and parties. Our team of qualified staff can also be available to make your event as specialised as you require. Why not learn to skipper the boat and enjoy a tranquil excursion on the canal? Don't forget you camera and binoculars, as you will be surprised by the wildlife living on your doorstep. We can also offer a wide choice of children's parties, with any of the Art and Crafts activities available to make it a party to remember.
Watch this space for one of our regular open days where you can come along and meet the staff and sample many of the activities we have to offer. We hope to see you soon.
