Avon Gorge Abseil

Lean back. Take the strain. Feel the rush.

Imagine standing 190ft up on the edge of Avon Gorge looking out over the stunning Bristol landscape. Imagine leaning back, hearing the wind, taking the strain and feeling the rush as you lower yourself over the edge.

Places are limited so take advantage of this rare opportunity and sign up now to be a part of this amazing event!

On the day, expert abseil professionals will provide you with a comprehensive safety briefing, so no previous experience is needed. All the specialist equipment required to take on a challenge of this magnitude will also be provided.

You will meet mid morning at Avon Gorge, you will be fully briefed and equipped in your safety harness and helmet. Then you will take part in an initial 'training' abseil' at a slightly lower level - to give you the opportunity to get the hang of things. Then there will be time for a tea break, before setting off to the very top of the gorge, for the 'big one'!
