About Us

Welcome to Kong Adventure

Here you will find a wide range of activities for all ages based in Keswick, right in the heart of the British Lake District, World Heritage Site. Our friendly and experienced staff will be able to help find the right activity for you.

There’s a wide range of activities that we’re able to offer to keep even the most frequent user happy all year round!

The climbing area consists of a multitude of angles from slabs to steep overhangs around the main area, including a Moon Board in our Bouldering Area to get your arms pumping! Tucked away behind all this is our indoor caving system; crawl, squeeze and weasel your way through from the bottom of the climbing wall to the cavern before exiting out of the cave into our cafe upstairs.

If you have tried everything indoors or would just like to take on a challenge outdoors, we have a wide range of outdoor activities available to suit all abilities – including Rock Climbing, Ghyll Scrambling, Mine Exploration and Via Ferrata!

Off on your own adventures?  Then why not check out our independent outdoor store specialising in Climbing, Mountaineering and Running!

Our History

KONG Adventure Centre, built in the heart of the British Lake District, Keswick, opened its doors to the climbing world in October 2014 by climbing wall construction experts King Kong Climbing Walls (now KONG Adventure Engineering).

The centre represents the latest in climbing wall design and construction, including a rare indoor caving system, bouldering area, lead walls and a dedicated Moon Board. To complement this, we also have a café and children’s hard play area, which allows anyone from toddlers to grown-ups to get into the mountaineering sports safely under professional instruction, or to play and have a fun time.

KONG Adventure Store brings you the very best outdoor equipment with popular British brands such as Inov8 and DMM, as well as some of the best European brands such as Salomon and Ocun, as well as American brand KUHL.

KONG Adventure is run by dedicated outdoor enthusiasts, the team is passionate about the outdoors from Climbing in the Lakeland fells to Via Ferrata in the Italian Dolomites, taking on Scotland’s harsh winters or mountaineering in the Alps.

Our dedicated team bring this passion and enthusiasm to life to deliver the best experience to you, no matter what we provide. It could be your first step on a climbing wall, wading through a mountain Ghyll, taking on England’s highest mountain or buying your first pair of walking boots!
