Get Outside!

In a world that relies so heavily on technology, at Weardale Adventure Centre we offer our guests an experience that exists in the moment. The TV is off, phones are discouraged and social media is forgotten about when you’re suspended up high.


Using a combination of our fantastic onsite facilities and local venues, many of which we have sole use of, we’re flexible in our approach to your learning, and design bespoke programmes for every client and group.
