Big Rock Climbing Centre is an exciting all weather venue, with fun activities suitable for the whole family. It's great fun for kids and the perfect antidote to boring gym regimes for adults! Humans have been climbing trees to escape from wolves and other scary stuff for thousands of years so don't let modern life supress your natural instinct to climb. Conquer our high roped walls for an unbeatable sense of achievement, experience the freedom of climbing without using a rope in our low level bouldering area or try something that's entirely off-the-wall: CrazyClimb featuring a series of wacky climbing challenges! Have fun and get fit! The aim is to ascend a climb using only the designated coloured holds - think of it as join the dots but much more interesting! Choosing the correct sequence of coloured holds and reaching the top provides an unbeatable feeling and a really fun workout. No previous experience is required and anyone can have a go. Spectators are free to relax in the seating area overlooking the climbing walls and can enjoy a selection of drinks, snacks and meals from the Big Rock cafe. Free WiFi is even available!

Such an amazing day, thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructor was excellent, encouraging but not too pushy. Made us all feel totally relaxed, and made it really fun for the kids. Will definitely be back!
