Very friendly staff, huge car park. The climbing walls have static lines for beginners and they have courses for very young children to the ancient ones too (me). They have a café which allows parents to keep an eye on their offspring. Lots of party...More

I climbed here for 3 years and skated here for 2 years and did caving. I am friends with most of the very friendly staff. The XC has great facilities. And is a great place to go if you have no plans. MUST DO

My 6 year daughter had a 1 hour introductory climbing session. Whilst she didn't get very far up the walls she had a great time and was looked after very well.

Book both Caving and High Ropes really good fun on both activities. Caves were a bit tight in places but that added to the experience . Both activities were well supervised and safety was made paramount. Well recommended.
