Peacehaven Cliffs

We are looking for brave, animal lovers to take part in this breath-taking abseil off the 115 ft high Peacehaven clifftop in honour of World Animal Day. It takes place on Saturday 25th September and there will be hourly slots running from 10 a.m. Two ropes will be running at once, so race a friend to the bottom as you experience the amazing sea views.

Go above and beyond to help Kennel dog’s like Scooby to rehabilitate and find a loving forever home.


Enjoy your day

You don’t need any experience, all training is provided on the day, you will be fully supervised with safety gear provided and expert instructors to help you complete your challenge …so you can enjoy the ride and the amazing sea views.


Our friends at 4th Dimension have put in place special social distancing measures to make your abseil COVID-19 safe.
