City Centre Abseiling from Buildings and Bridges
Any UK City: We bring the ropes to You!
This is a world where the bats and the birds live and now you can hang out here too. It’s high, it’s scary, the wind is blowing and there is nothing beneath your feet. You’ll sweat and shake while you wonder why on earth you’ve agreed to this, as you lean back wondering if the rope will hold you tight. However, you’ll proper love it! So what are you waiting for, read what it’s all about and let’s start planning your event!

What to Expect
Your knuckles go white, your palms sweat, your knees become weak and you shuffle to the edge. While the wind whistles through the cold metalwork you look down at the crowd of onlookers, appearing ant-like and far away. As your trust in our patient and gentle team strengthens, you lean back into the void with eyes wide open, the rope tightens and you can start to enjoy the descent, even throwing in some jumps if you like!
Well done, you probably raised some money for a good cause!
Prices and Booking
There are Two Options
- Use either Larpool Viaduct, Whitby or K2 Hull, that are risk assessed already, or
- You find a building to use and we come and inspect it, then we run the abseil at a later date*
*First you need to get permission from the building owner, then we need to send someone to check out the building, write a risk assessment and test it out. Then you promote it and we run the abseil. It’s as easy as that! If you use a building we already have permission for there is no charge to risk assess it. All we need is a £100 deposit to reserve the date. The balance and participant numbers are due 30 days before the activity.

Abseiling for charity?
Many people abseil to raise money for charity. If this is your plan, we’ll be with you all the way! Most charities have sponsorship packs that will help support you – including offering a sponsorship form to track fundraising. If you don’t receive this, Lost Earth Adventures can send you one of our generic forms. We also have lots of ideas for fundraising and planning charity events.
If you’d prefer to be in nature for your adrenaline rush then we organise abseils from cliffs and mountain tops throughout the UK’s national parks and all mountainous areas. Visit our abseiling page to find out more.
