Set in 250 acres of stunning English countryside, Bradfield College is on of England’s finest educational establishments. Founded in 1850 by the Reverend Thomas Stevens for ‘the careful education of boys as loving children of the Church of England’, Bradfield has continually improved, modernized and enlarged its facilities, which are second to none both in diversity and quality.
Bradfield is one of England’s leading sporting schools – and its facilities reflect and encourage this excellence. Both the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Football Association have discovered what makes Bradfield the perfect sporting retreat.
The quiet seclusion of Bradfield’s 250 acres belies its accessibility. Small wonder Bradfield is such a perennially popular venue for cultural and sporting groups and associations from across the globe as well as the British Isles. Bradfield is an ideal location – just 40 minutes from Heathrow airport, an hour from London, conveniently located fro Oxford, Winchester and many other cultural, historic and commercial centers.
Accommodation is both superb and flexible. Single and shared rooms available, with en suite or shared bathroom facilities. Bradfield’s catering services are led by David James. With its revamped $500,000.00 kitchen’s Bradfield has become the showcase for this exclusive catering service. It really is the perfect blend of quality, convenience and beautiful tranquility that make Bradfield the ideal venue.
