Why visit Llangrannog?
What Educational benefits does a residential stay at Llangrannog offer?
Since 1932 Llangrannog Urdd centre has worked on the ethos of Learning through Activity, and this has proven effective in developing self confidence in individuals. It is true to say that there is no better classroom than the Urdd Centre, Llangrannog! We take full advantage of our surrounding environment and cultural history to provide a wide range of course. The unique Welsh atmosphere of the Centre makes it an ideal location for a language course and is one of the reasons that 96% of schools see an improvement in their pupils’ attitude towards the Welsh language and culture following their stay. Bilingualism is an integral part of the Llangrannog experience, and is an added benefit of various other courses at Llangrannog, from Activity course, Geography, History, Literature, Art and more.
