Booked big rock for my daughters 7th birthday party and 12 friends. From start to finish I found it a very pleasing experience. The instructors just took over and were extremely efficient and helpful and the kids just got on with the activity with no boring moments. Climbing over, 12 sweaty kids went into the party room where everything was... More

I started climbing here after my son got into it, and I wanted to find out why he enjoyed it so much. We'll, I'm now hooked on the sport, but having tried some other climbing gyms, this is by far my favourite, First, the staff. I couldn't wish for a more helpful, jolly and experienced crew. They take time out... More

Wide variety of climbs of different grades & technical difficulty. extensive bouldering room. Stuff for kids. Kit hire, good food at sensible prices including Wendy's magnificent cakes. This old biddy (63) attends the social climbing on a Wed morning to climb with likeminded other biddies (& those not so old). GO it's fab!

Went here as a 'surprise' activity for my friends birthday (we are 27 and 28 years old) and had a great time! Venue was very quiet and had originally booked a Crazy Climb session but instructors went out of their way and gave us time on the rope climbs as well :-) Instructors were both great with really good senses...

Loved it and so did our kids. If you want to try out climbing or just take the sport up in a safe environment, then try Big Rock. Lots of walls to try, all different and they even have some very high walls whereby they have dug into the ground for that extra length. We felt fully secure at all... More
