This is a very versatile centre that can cater to just about all levels of difficulty. Instructors on hand if you need them. My two daughters started at 3 and reached 5B within one hour with one instructor between them. Good rope skills. Lots of different routes (for each grade) and endless picn-n-mix opportunities. Bouldering walls provide more free-style challenges.

We only found out about this from Rosie (?) doing the climbing wall in the centre of Keswick today. £3.50 per child for outdoor adventure including a zip line, archery, maze, bug hotels, sheep spotting, slides, skittles and more. Its for under 8s too which is nice as I find older kids tend to take over on things like this... More

From the moment my wife phoned to make a booking all the way through to our lesson we experienced nothing but friendly and cheerful employees.

We found this place whilst on holiday as we were looking for somewhere to try climbing. The centre is brilliant. Staff are incredibly friendly. We started off with an hour's lesson to teach us how to tie knots and belay. The instructor was great and took time to make sure we were all confident. After this we then had access... More

We booked the high ropes and zip line out door activity as part of a hen party weekend. Our instructors Emma and Amy were fantastic great fun despite us having a group of nightmare kids in our session, they handled them amazingly and made our day memorable. We will definitely be back for more.

We visited this place on a wet (bouncing down with rain) Sunday afternoon in November the children were looking forward to going. We thought the instructors/staff were very nice people and thorough with safety and instructions, brilliant with the children. Very reasonable cost for the time given and the main thing the children thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are thinking... More
