The Lake District is the perfect place for year-round adventures, whatever the weather.
One of our favourite indoor attractions for all of the family is Kendal Climbing Wall aka the Lakeland Climbing Centre. Established in 1995 this award-winning attraction has since grown to include some unique experiences, perfect for a rainy day.
Try the Skyline Indoor Aerial Adventure - Europe's first indoor Via Ferrata! Suitable for beginners, the attraction guides you through a series of challenges including a rapid 20-metre descent with 3 metres of (optional) free fall - perfect for thrill seekers!
CrazyClimb and SkyJump are exciting activities for families; tackle 12 uniquely themed obstacles with the centre’s clever, minimal fuss TruBlue auto belay system and test your courage on SkyJump - an 18-metre free fall. CrazyClimb can also be hired for special celebrations - the perfect way to spend a birthday with your friends.
If you’re an experienced climber looking for a more traditional climbing experience in the Lake District the opportunities are endless at Kendal Climbing Wall - try the slabs, overhangs and even a stalactite in the main climbing hall! The climbing centre features a range of grades from f3 to f8a/b including short reach routes for younger climbers. In late 2018, the centre created 38 new routes on a series of new 12 metre walls and with the highest wall in England at 25m - the centre is the perfect place to test your nerves and skill.
Bouldering facilities are in abundance at Kendal Climbing Wall with 8 circuits in The Marmot Loft space and short reach problems in The Den space.
Don’t have a head for heights? The Creamery Cafe makes the perfect relaxing space to enjoy delicious locally sourced food and drinks whilst you wait for your companions to finish a climb. With cakes from Wilf’s cafe in nearby Staveley and coffee from local brewers Farrers.
Kendal Climbing Wall is open 364 days of the year!
