I have been going here for a good while now and it's a large and well run centre. The routes are changed regularly enough to keep it interesting and there is a lot of them for both bouldering, top rope and lead. I would recommend it for anyone from beginner through to seasoned climber.

Went for a family climbing experience but me and my friend had some previous experience and the instructor picked up on that straight away and catered to us perfectly. He was a great guy and we had loads of fun, didn't find it too easy at all. He gave us advice about how to continue our climbing and using the... More

I had my son's 8th party there and all the boys really enjoyed. Well worth going for a family day out or a party with children.

Fabulous 9th birthday party at Boulders. Climbing instructors were fantastic (Anna and Zach). The girls had a wonderful time and really enjoyed it. We had a late party on a Sunday (4-6) and the food time felt rushed and a bit awkward. Would book an earlier slot next time. Would definitely go again and will look to arrange a family... More

Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere. I was particularly impressed by the quality of the cafe's food and drink selection and enthusiastic cafe staff! Loads of homemade dishes that are delicious, cheap and filling whilst still catering for all sorts of dietary requirements. Vegetarians, vegans and gluten free-ers literally eat you hart out! Will be back again for those granola bars!
