Went as part of a stag do, and they really made sure the stag was challenged!! Was a great afternoon; everyone got to have a go on various walls and the event culminated in races to the top. Friendly staff - highly recommended!

Had my daughters 11th birthday party, she had a great time and the instructor was great with all of them, even my little boy who decided he didn't like heights half way through. Good food after. Easy party for parents to just sit and watch your kids have fun.

Booked a party at Boulders, following my 10 year old experiencing climbing with her dad. On arrival, it was a little disorganised, but put this down to Change over time. Josh, our instructor was very good and pushed the girls to thier limit. I don't envy him having to show 8,10 year old girls some authority! 😀 food provided was... More

My boyfriend and I signed up for the Climbing class for adult beginners and had such a great time! We were looking for something different to do after work besides going to a movie or out to dinner... something that got us moving a bit more. The climbing instructors at Boulders were incredibly friendly and got us going right away.... More

What a fantastic place. Rhys our instructor was superb, able to explain things to children and adults in an interesting way that also calmed my nerves. Thoroughly pleased with the experience and all 5 of us agreed this was a place to come back to. My 8 year old now wants his party there in September!

Great fun - the girls loved it! Had a great instructor called Toby who kept them well organised and entertained. Really nice idea for something different for a kids party plus small play area to keep her 4 year old brother entertained! 👍 Very friendly staff - cafe area for parents to get a snack etc whilst kids climbing.

We booked Boulders for our sons 8th birthday party. He invited 7 friends and for 90 minutes climbing followed by hot/cold buffet, it was £150. We were throughly pleased with our choice and the children had a great time. The instructor, James, was great and had each of the kids listening and following advice; no mean feat!!! We also had...
