A wonderful 1.5 hours spent on my first climbing experience since primary school. I'm terrified of heights but managed to successfully climb to the top on more than one occasion. The staff are great! Totally build your confidence & I would absolutely recommend this place. The children loved it too !

Friendly staff, bright and clean space. Well laid out and in a beautiful building.

I felt very safe and the staff didn't make me feel intimidated. My kids loved it and I was really impressed at the whole experience.

I would definitely recommend it here! Great value for money too!

A visit with boys. Very friendly and helpful staff. It is quite a compact venue, but very well laid out with useful guides to all the climbing and bouldering grades. Nice cafe upstairs for refreshments. Definitely visit again.

Thank Andrew T

I had excellent tuition from Matt and Ally. I have done some climbing before but this brought my climbing on a lot, now I need to remember it and get out and practice. Highly recommended.

My girls (8 and 11 yo) had a fabulous time. At £15 each for an hour and half, they really felt that they had good value for money. All safety equipment and instruction was included, and they were taught how to warm up, how to stay safe, how to work as a team and how to climb. One girl has additional challenges, and the instructor, Ali, was careful to work around her needs and help her enjoy her experience - she got her climbing far higher than I thought would be possible!
I enjoyed watching them from the café above the wall.
