This centre is well run and well organised. They applt all the necessary safety rules etc without being heavy handed or burdensome. There is equipment to hire and this all looked to be of fairly typical mid range stuff.

There is a really good variety of wall types and routes and a decent bouldering room.
I would recommend this for anyone who is a complete beginner or novice, although please note that if this is the case you would need to possibly book a supervised session to teach you the ropes so to speak.
For average climbers there is plenty to keep you occupied and for experienced climbers ditto.
The only thing I would say is that the walls are not the highest of most technical and so for an experienced climber it may be more suitable for a practice session rather than a real challenge.

Hello and many thanks for the great review. I am please that you were impressed enough with our facilities and staff to want to comment so favourably about them. We try hard to maintain high standards of safety without detracting from providing a fun and worthwhile experience for all ages and abilities. While we are not the highest wall as you commented, we do reset routes on a regular basis and try to make sure there is enough to keep all levels of climbers occupied. Also, as you pointed out, if you would like any form of Instruction, you do need to book. Experienced climbers over 18 however can register with us then sign in and be responsible for 2 non experienced climbers. Thank you again for the great review and come and see us again soon.

Heather our lesson leader was fantastic. We had an hours 1:1 tuition as we arrived quite early. from start to finish it was well organised and the training allowed us to then spend another few hours climbing by ourselves as we'd mastered the basics. For £15 per person we thought this was good value. Thanks Keswick climbing wall - keep us the great work.

Hello and thanks for the super review ! We always try to make sure any adults on the lesson finish being capable of continuing belaying safely after the lesson ends then allowing the party to carry on climbing for the rest of the day at no extra cost. We are glad that you feel that this is good value and we hope that you will come back and climb with us again.

A friend and I went for a kayaking morning with Sam from Keswick Climbing Wall recently. We both had a great time - lots of fun and good value as only the two of us in the group. The centre provided cagouls, buoyancy jackets and fleeces as it was a cold day. We were then driven from the climbing wall centre down to a marina on Derwent Water to collect our kayaks and paddles. After some instruction from Sam, we were then on the water for about 2 hours - paddling to a few of the islands on the water. Sam was a good instructor - patient and friendly. It was a great way to see the lake and is a good rainy day activity as, even without falling in, you end up pretty damp anyway! Would definitely reccommend.

We signed up for the archery as it was an activity we all wanted to do. Billed as a 1 hour session it turned out to be around half an hour of archery with lots of time watching others do it - the bigger the group the less time you send doing it yourself. Obvious really if you think about it but at £60 for a family of 4 and around £1 per arrow, a bit disappointing and not good value. The guy teaching made it fun thought and knew his stuff.
The climbing looks to be more fun... but young children need an adult as part of the lesson even though those adults are not the ones learning to climb. So a £15 lesson turns into £30 in an eye-blink. Do this in the morning though and you get the benefit of the rest of the day on the ropes and walls.
