Good routes and nice cafe, easy and cheap parking nearby. Clip and climb for children and good space for parties. For the more serious climber, lots of lead routes of all grades and a bottom belay section with easier routes

Took the kids for a taster session! Was brilliant, not too expensive and a really great team on board. Definitely recommend if you're staying in the area. We didn't get time on our holiday this year but will definitely be back next year!

The Quay has a great variety of climbing walls, as well as two bouldering rooms. The service isn't always great so it may take a while for them to get you set up, but once you're equipped and climbing none of it really matters anymore....More
