We all booked separately, which worked very well, no who owes what to whom! We had in the main all used clip'n'climb before so once the safety rules had been run through we were climbing. The various climbs are well thought out and are in the main a challenge to the average person. There are very few climbs that benefit... More

Hi Phil W. Thank you for your comments, we're glad that everyone had a fun time. We also love it when we get adults participating and enjoying the activity, just because we grow up doesn't mean we can't still have fun! We look forward to seeing you again. More

We had an enjoyable day out with the kids. Excellent focus is given on the children and safety is first at hand. An totally enjoyable experience all round. My daughter wants to go back all the time!

You would have been visiting the Quay Climbing Centre. We share a building with the Quay Climbing Centre which is a conventional Rock Climbing Wall. The Quay also own &... More

We have been here a number of times and my child loved the climbing. But the cafe service is crap. When down as a climber the staff are helpful and the facility's are brilliant. But when in the cafe it's almost like the staff resent having to work in the cafe as well. I have just waited for 10 minutes... More

Hi Sam K Thank-you for your comments. We're glad that you enjoy the climbing experience here at Clip N Climb but we're obviously disappointed by your experience at the café. This is actually owned & run by the Quay Climbing Centre located in the same building as us. As we share the reception (Which is linked to the café) with... More

Needed a mummy-daughter day out with my 5 year old and decided on clip n climb...so glad we did!! Fantastic fun at a very well run and organised venue with lovely, helpful staff. Climbing to the top of two walls gave my daughter the biggest smile and the greatest sense of achievement (not to mention a proud mummy!) Can't stop... More

Had a family member staying and visited the centre as part of a day out, place was easy to find, we live locally to. Venue is clean tidy and reasonably priced, I didn't take part but by all accounts everyone was having a good time and staff friendly
