Our Helipad Abseil is now FULL. We are now operating a Waiting List for any further enquiries. If any places become available before the Event, we shall contact those on the Waiting List. 

The highly anticipated and exhilarating annual abseil event is back! Now in its fifth year, another round of fearless fundraisers are needed to go over the edge and launch themselves from the highest rooftop helipad in Europe. Join the London's Air Ambulance abseil team and descend The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel from 17 floors up. The free hang aspect (no body contact with the wall!) only adds to the sense of exhilaration as you experience the East London skyline from a whole new angle. Previous abseilers included Dr. Hilary Jones and Larry Lamb who have been brave enough to take the plunge. This year it could be you! 

The Abseil will span over four days:

  • Wednesday 13th September (Afternoon only)
  • Thursday 14th September
  • Friday 15th September
  • Saturday 16th September

Watch our video and then find out how you can register below.


Register your place by clicking on the yellow 'Register' button above, creating an account and filling in the event registration form. We ask that you pay a £35 non-refundable registration fee and commit to fundraising a target of £300. 
Our fundraising team will be there to support you every step of the way. All our participants receive the following as part of their commitment to fundraise for London's Air Ambulance:
  • Fundraising pack full of hints and tips to help smash your target
