“Great way to introduce kids to rock climbing”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

My 10 year old loves sports and now he can add indoor rock climbing to his portfolio. Dylon, our instructor, was fantastic. His training and encouragement really helped to make this a great experience. There are numerous walls of varying grades with so many ropes that there was plenty of space even with two organised groups. Everyone behaved impeccably and all the young kids were able to enjoy themselves very safely. They have a bouldering area where you can practise at low level without the need of a safety harness. Great fun. We spent all morning there and would have stayed all day if we had the choice. I thoroughly recommend Keswick Climbing Wall for all levels. We shall return.

“Not just for kids - had fun”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Had a great time at the Keswick Climbing Wall. Have not been climbing since about 1978 when used to crag climb in Northumberland. Really enjoyed it then but wasn't sure I would still be able to climb. No need to worry, the tuition was excellent, and we both had fun climbing and belaying each other. Thanks to Emily for her clear instructions and encouragement.

“Great family kayaking”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Me, my husband and son (9) had a fantastic time kayaking with the Keswick Climbing Wall. None of us had ever really done it before and we were a bit nervous but had nothing to worry about. the instructor was excellent and very patient and in particular was brilliant with our son who seemed to end up in the water ( deliberately I might add!) more than most. We had 3 hours and it was great fun and great value for money. Would highly recommend and look forward to working up the courage to ghyll scramble too.

The climbing wall looked great but we hadn't tried it yet but they offer lots of other great activities such as archery, canoeing etc. Great family fun day out

“Awesome activities and staff”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Discovered by accident as we were cycling past on a sunny day. Booked a lesson for our son who thought it was fantastic and had to go again. The the great staff arranged an outdoor climb for us all-not done before so a bit nervous but the staff were so good, judged the standard correctly that we all achieved the climbs and had a great time so had to book another outdoor climb. Excellent staff and facilities for indoor or outdoor climbing and other adventures whether sunny or rainy-thank you Emily and Andy for the outdoor climbs and Will for the indoor technique advice. We will be back :)

“Great experience”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Would recommend a visit on a wet day! Great value for money and very friendly staff. Had never tried climbing before and although a little scary at first I ended up really enjoying myself. Would definitely return!
