Alnwick Castle Abseil

17th Aug 2023

Take your place in history and conquer the Alnwick Castle abseil whilst raising vital funds for Northumberland Estate's Charity of the Year - The People’s Kitchen.

The abseil will take place on the 23 September at Alnwick Castle. The first challenge is climbing the 84 steps on the spiral staircase to the top of the castle keep. Once at the top you will abseil down the castle walls on a 100ft rope, taking in the beautiful views of the grounds and pastures along the way.

Participants will be guided in this event by expert activity providers, Adventure Northumberland, who will ensure you are fully harnessed and equipped with the know-how to complete the challenge.

All proceeds from the event will go to The People’s Kitchen. The Newcastle-based charity aims to make life better for vulnerable people; working to enable people to move off the streets and then provide food, furniture, and bedding to those in need. They also offer friendship and professional services to improve mental well-being.

Northumberland Estates will also donate a family ticket to Alnwick Castle for all participants on the day of the event.
