Climb the Mine

A unique underground adventure in the Lake District which takes you inside the caverns of Honister Slate mine.

Take a unique 'one of kind' underground adventure deep inside the caverns of Honister Slate Mine, Keswick. 

Similar to the Via Ferrata Xtreme, but this activity takes you in to the heart of a historic Lake District mountain in to areas only used be miners 100 years ago. As you climb and scramble up vertical rock walls of this historical mine, you'll be scaling airy bridges and tackling metal ladders attached to the rock in this subterranean world.

Climb the Mine is an adrenaline filled indoor adventure climbing / scrambling system that uses a permanently fixed cable for safety and protection up the rock face.

This is the perfect activity regardless of what the Lake District weather throws at us as we shelter inside the mine. You will leave this activity energised and excited for more.

NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS WE WILL BE OPERATING THE BUSINESS IN A REDUCED CAPACITY. SADLY, WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020.

Who is Climb the Mine for?

For those looking for a challenge. Being inside the mine means it's a perfect option when the weather is not so great.
