Overview

We have sold the business to a company in ST Helens who have an excellent site. Largest fleet of Segways in the region providing Segway guided tours. Based in Jesmond Dene (Ouseburn parks) Parks in the heart of Newcastle upon tyne, walking distance to popular areas of Osbourne Road, the famous Quayside and Heaton & even an authentic Italian restaurant on site. Activities range from a gentle 'get to know a Segway' tour on tarmac and grass to high adventure tours in the forest sections. Experienced Corporate activities and events with our own conference facilities or larger Milburn House in the dene or prestigious hotels eg Jesmond Dene House or Fishermans lodge all within 5 minute walk. Stag and Hen Parties catered for (with Quad bikes and clay pigeon shooting if desired).
