St Mungo's are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity to abseil down one of the London's most iconic buildings. An imposing, Art Deco structre built in 1937, Senate House housed the Ministry of Information during World War II and inspired George Orwell's description of the Ministry of Truth in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. It has been in various TV shows such as Dr Who, Jeeves and Wooste and recently in the final episode of Black Mirror, as well as films such as The Dark Knight.
No prior experience is necessary to take part as you receive all your training and abseiling kit on the day. We will also have a photographer to capture the moment you start your descent. Do invite your friends and family to cheer you on and capture the moment you land firmly back on the ground!

Over the last 4 years we have had over 500 abseilers have successfully abseil down Senate House, raising over £120,000 to help homeless people. Thank you to all those who took part, volunteered and supported these fantastic events. You can see some pictures from our 2016 event here
Please note: The abseil is available to participants aged 16 and over.
The providers for the day will be "Over the Edge Adventures" who have many years experience of running these types of events and will provide training and a safety briefing on the day.
