Excellent bouldering centre in Central London with great facilities and very kind staff. Even though I live outside of London I still try to go once a week because it's well worth the travel.

New wauxwall east center is spacious but I had a feeling that routes dont match levels, missing drinking water tap upstairs. Would be nice if gym had more equipment in terms of beastmakers and rest of the stuff to train for climbing.

Vauxwall is essentially my second home. A wonderful bouldering venue with three different and distinct rooms with hundreds of climbing routes. The staff are a massive asset to the venue. Friendly and competent climbers, always willing to give guidance or stop for a quick chat....More

I have nothing bad to say about the gym, the employees, or the climbing environment. Plenty of good boulder problems were set and they have made great use of their space. My problem: £3 onsite iPad registration fee. I have been climbing in outdoors and...More
