You will get VIP access to the Castle’s lookout tower, which is otherwise closed to the public and take in spectacular views across Belfast Lough before abseiling approx. 100ft! The atmosphere is fantastic, and a great day for all the family and your friends who can watch you from the gardens below and celebrate your achievement for Nexus!
