Although I did not use the climbing centre myself, I visited the site out of curiosity and was stunned to find it packed with people who were having a great, if not strenuous, time climbing the various walls that were available. The staff were very generous with their time in answering questions I posed. Everyone seemed to be having a... More

The new showers are awful ! What a waste of money..................... The old showers were excellent, the new showers have a trickle of water coming out of tiny holes, they have put in clear glass doors so everyone getting changed can watch you desperately trying to rinse the soap of with the miniscule amount of water that trickles from the...

The castle is a great climbing centre, lots of good bouldering areas and some of the best indoor toproping/lead in the country but it is expensive and is way too busy unless you go weekdays before 6:30. Any time after that or at weekends its uncomfortably busy and when you pay such a steep price to get in its seems... More

I climb reguarly at the castle, (couple of time a week). Getting membership makes things a lot cheaper. The castle really is a truly amazing climbing centre. The number of routes, the facilities, and the people. There is a friendly chilled atmosphere at the castle, and the staff are very polite and friendly, really good customer service. The centre can...

I always saw climbing as a solitary kind of sport with a spiritual bent designed for skinny gangly folk, in particular spirited young men. I read a wonderful book by David Breashears chronicling his climbing and training which seemed to be done outdoors or in some kind of physical job. So it is fair to say I came away from... More

For experts, beginners and first timers Castle Climbing Centre is the place to go. It has numerous challenging bouldering problems within different areas and environments for any level, there are also very challenging top rope walls plus some for lead climbing if you are into it. Ah... Almost forgot they have a new addition... a new bouldering area outdoors that... More

After a muddle over booking, which on reflection may have been my fault anyway, the staff sent out of their way to help and fixed my son up with a private lesson. Relaxed atmosphere throughout the centre, everybody there, adult and child seemed to be enjoying themselves. Instructor had an air of calm competence. Kid really enjoyed it. Wifi worked... More

It was my first time climbing but I learned fast. There's a gradual challenge which makes it more exciting once you feel you've managed one level. Its good fun!

If you're stuck in London and need to feed your climbing habbit then this is the place to go. The Castle has both top and lead routes and an excellent array of boulder walls. Now that the upstairs boulder walls have been opened the place has a bit more space to move about and seems to be less crowded. If... More
