The castle is vast, with a great mixture of bouldering, auto belays, top rope and lead walls. It’s definitely the best all round climbing wall I’ve been to (and I’ve been to all of the London / Sheffield ones). Add onto that a great atmosphere...More

I really love this center! There's indoor and outdoor bouldering, there's tons of routes to follow and much to explore. It is literally an old castle and even though it gets quite busy, it is so huge that you can always find a less crowded...More

Not only, they lost the shoes of my daughter. This time, they refused to teach me how to use the rope, when we just wanted to boulder. They kick us out of the building.More

A great London indoor climbing centre with bouldering, top rope and lead climbing. They are constantly improving the centre and have a great abseiling tower too. There is a great cafe there (which I'm told they grow there own produce for, which is pretty impressive)....More
