Test your nerve as you cross the longest highwire bridge in Europe! Discover our infinity bridge below.
Appropriately named owing to its seemingly endless length (190 metres to be precise!), the Infinity bridge at Honister is the perfect way to push boundaries and quench your thirst for adrenaline.
Suspended 1,000 feet above sea level, this heart-racing experience provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape.
Tackling the longest highwire bridge in Europe is sure to provide plenty of action, laughter and a true sense of accomplishment.
Not a fan of heights? No problem! Our experienced guides can provide extra support and encouragement along the way for those who are taking on the challenge to conquer their fear. Just mention this at reception and to your guide on the day. With their help, you can conquer your fears and enjoy this unique and exhilarating way to view the Lake District landscape.
We’re also pleased to offer spectators the opportunity to watch for just £7.50 per person.
