We loved our first experience at Boulders in this session where we were able to get climbing almost straight away. The inside of Boulders is deceptively large and there were lots of different walls with various levels of difficulty and overhang. The instructor was approachable,...More

Boulders is a great facility. The booking in process was easy, the staff friendly and helpful. The instructors for our group made the intro session fun and enjoyable and showed how accessible climbing can be. Will be back for more!!

A great climbing centre for experienced climbers both adults and children. If you are new to climbing you should phone ahead and book your visit and you'll be well looked after.

Good centre, loads of routes, good variation, a few auto belays, good bouldering section. I would say it feels a little tired around the edges, but that's being picky. The staff have been excellent to date. Very good centre.
