If this place had clean toilets and the cafe staff weren't so surly and rude, this place would be one of my favourite places in London. There on Sunday (17th) afternoon. Great atmosphere and fantastic climbing - shame that poor service should spoil it.

I don't recommend going to this climbing centre, especialy on weekends when it is overly crowded. The worst thing of all was the staff's attitude towards me and my fiancée. Very unfriendly and impatient with us. This was our 2nd visit there and I dont think we'll be ever go back after this bad experience today, especially considering how expensive... More

This place has a good mix of bouldering and climbing. Comparing to some of the great climbing centres it doesn't match up. Mainly because of the height of the walls. It's an iconoclastic place to go to. The range of climbing suits everyone and there are a few good lead walls as well as lots of short pitches. It gets... More

The castle is one of the best places in London for meeting people and making friends. It is a really good place for kids (they love it), pets and family or friends. They organize joint climbing sessions and courses so you will be able to climb with people and make friends since the first day!. Try the Fresh Mint Tea... More

Been a member for a few months, it was actually the friendliness of the staff that prompted me and my girlfriend to do the course and start climbing. Facilities are remarkable; there are walls for every level and bouldering outside. The whole place is run by people who really care about the building the business, the customers but also the...

Although I did not use the climbing centre myself, I visited the site out of curiosity and was stunned to find it packed with people who were having a great, if not strenuous, time climbing the various walls that were available. The staff were very generous with their time in answering questions I posed. Everyone seemed to be having a... More

The new showers are awful ! What a waste of money..................... The old showers were excellent, the new showers have a trickle of water coming out of tiny holes, they have put in clear glass doors so everyone getting changed can watch you desperately trying to rinse the soap of with the miniscule amount of water that trickles from the...

The castle is a great climbing centre, lots of good bouldering areas and some of the best indoor toproping/lead in the country but it is expensive and is way too busy unless you go weekdays before 6:30. Any time after that or at weekends its uncomfortably busy and when you pay such a steep price to get in its seems... More

I climb reguarly at the castle, (couple of time a week). Getting membership makes things a lot cheaper. The castle really is a truly amazing climbing centre. The number of routes, the facilities, and the people. There is a friendly chilled atmosphere at the castle, and the staff are very polite and friendly, really good customer service. The centre can...

I always saw climbing as a solitary kind of sport with a spiritual bent designed for skinny gangly folk, in particular spirited young men. I read a wonderful book by David Breashears chronicling his climbing and training which seemed to be done outdoors or in some kind of physical job. So it is fair to say I came away from... More
