Aerial Experience, next open Sat 11 May - Sun 27 Oct 2019, free entry




Gliding experience with an instructor for ages 12 and over. Ideally situated to benefit from the excellent air currents over the Eden Valley allowing you to 'soar' quietly along the Pennines and surrounding areas. Stunning views and a 'hands on' experience for those that want to take the controls.
