No holiday in Tenby would be the same without a visit or four to the Overhang. A welcoming family atmosphere and my daughter just loves coming to climb here. Cannot recommend this place enough.

The climbing centre was smaller than epected but the climbs and equipment are more than you can ask for. Made for kids and adults it's perfect. The guy who owns is a great and funny guy his wife and children were also funny and sweet.
