Keep Cool in the Caverns: Underground adventures for all the family to enjoy this summer!
Zip World Llechwedd is the ultimate all-weather site and is the perfect place to visit when you’re looking to either get out of the rain- or in this week's case, the scorching sun.
Sweaty sleepless nights and sore sunburn are just a handful of the many effects caused by the record-breaking high temperatures hitting the UK this week. Keep cool in the caverns of our Llechwedd site in Blaenau Ffestiniog, where our impressive underground caverns are a refreshing 7°C all year round.
If you’re looking for ways to keep cool during the heatwave, Zip World Llechwedd is home to 4 epic underground adventures, allowing you to escape the heat while visiting the historic mine in the most unique ways possible.
Caverns is a fan favourite and involves exploring the breathtaking caverns via zip lines, via ferratas, rope bridges, tightropes and more. Caverns is a one-of-a-kind experience that can take up to 3 hours, leaving you exhilarated and exhausted in equal measure. The perfect day out for families with older children, stag dos and couples, Caverns is a challenging yet fun adventure that requires real teamwork and encouragement to help each other around the course.
If you’re not quite up to the challenge, Bounce Below is right next door, where you can let loose in the same unique setting on our bouncy trampoline-style nets. Unleash your inner-thrill seeker on our enormous underground net adventure. Jump, bounce and slide your way through this stunning disused mine, with 6 trampoline-style nets built into an area twice the size of St. Paul’s Cathedral, there’s plenty to see in this subterranean paradise.
