I took my daughter here for a learn to climb course three years ago. I have been taking her every week during term time since as she's progressing through the indoor climbing NICAS levels. It's a great skill and hobby for her and provides exercise that appeals when normal team sports don't. From others there I hear that it's a... More

I recommend warm clothing if you are to stay and watch if the weather is cold outside. I did ask staff to turn some heat on... More

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.
