The Hilton at St George’s Park is the National Football Centre’s on-site accommodation within the grounds of the park and the heart of the National Forest. The hotel’s innovative guestrooms are ideal for teams. Students can unwind in the hotel’s swimming pool after a day of football. Packed lunches can be provided to allow flexibility during the day.
Alternatively, groups can stay in youth hostels in the nearby cities of Birmingham and Manchester.
