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

The staff were great and so helpful, the climbing routes were brilliant with so much to choose from, it was so exhilarating to climb to the top and just wanted... More

We were a group of 6 work colleagues with no climbing experience. We were given a great welcome and 2 guides showed us around and taught us the basic skills of climbing and abseiling without us ever feeling complete terror! Recommended for anyone.

I have had a few bad experiences at the wall. It tends to attract the posh city boys who think they are god's gift to man. Once I was about to start a lead and a rude man forces himself in front of me and started climbing where I was. Also a lot of people seem to go there just... More

Firstly, if you're not a climber already look no further in this review. I am reviewing this place compared to other walls, so will make no comment on how well they teach belaying etc. As a one-off, £13 is similar to Westway. You'll pay a tenner there, plus a fiver to register as they won't let non-registered people belay. The... More
