Me and my partner initially did a taster session here which we really enjoyed. Since then we have completed our top rope climbing course in Cornwall. We revisited The Quay two weekends ago and really enjoyed it again. Great mix of walls and levels, good bouldering rooms and friendly staff who are really helpful with any questions.

You must visit this great place- perfect for young and old alike. A brilliantly safe adventure playground with very welcoming staff.

My cousins booked onto clip and climb, and myself and my husband have recently started bouldering so rang up the centre to ask whether they had bouldering, how many climbs, what level etc. We were told that there were 2 good sized bouldering rooms with loads of climbs for different levels, so decided to tag a long and have a...

Had a great afternoon at Exeter Quay climbing centre, had a great session Clip & Climb with my son (9yrs old) and partner. Even though the session was full, we had plenty of opportunity to climb the different fun walls. The staff were super friendly, very helpful & great with the kids. Booking needed but well worth it!

Good climbing wall for kids and grown ups too. Clip and climb is a great idea. Shame it costs extra for the leap of faith.

I wanted to start learning to climb as my dad had done so many years ago. I went straight to learning how to climb and really enjoyed the experience I had while learning to climb. I eventually started to get good at doing 'top rope' climbing and went on to lead 'lead' climbing, I was again treated to professional coaching... More

The Quay climbing centre, as well as having excellent facilities, courses, etc., have extremely experienced staff. They are particularly good with youngsters and I would recommend anybody with a child that expresses an interest to come down and give it a try. The only drawback is the limited bouldering areas, but there are other places in the area that cater... More

Great place for active kids, well run, we take our children (9+11) to the clip'n'climb bit. Easy to book online, good thorough induction, great routes to climb. Lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon and build your kids confidence.. and you can do it with them too.

This place is something else. Set up in a very nice old building just off the quay and river. If you are into climbing walls etc then you will really have fun here. This site has been very well thought out and put together with a large variety of climbing devices to test your skills.

Great fun, good instruction from the guide. Constantly gave us harder and harder things to try and an hour was definitely enough!
