ACHIEVE NEW HEIGHTS

Discover a new dimension to keeping fit with our 10m climbing wall. The wall is elevated above reception and is perfect for beginners or experienced climbers.

There are 30+ routes from 3 – 6c which are regularly changed by our expert climbing instructors, so you can always find a new challenge to overcome.

Climbing is a great opportunity to develop new skills, stamina and strength as well as discover a new way to have fun.

Please note that non-members will need to visit reception if booking climbing for the first time to set up a new account. All climbing sessions are for 18+ other than Junior Climbing Club which is available to 8 – 17 years.

Close-fitting exercise clothes and trainers are best suited for indoor climbing. Climbing shoes are available to hire for courses.

If you’re a competent climber, we offer Pay & Go Climb sessions so you can take to the wall and build your own workout. You will need to demonstrate to our Climbing Instructor that you are a confident climber and then you can climb for as long as you want to during the session times. As climbing uses up to 80% of your muscle groups, every session will leave you feeling stronger and inspired to take on the next route. Please book in advance where possible, collect your ticket from a teal kiosk in reception and hand it to the instructor at the wall.
