THE CASTLE CLIMBING CENTRE

Our newest partner, The Castle Climbing Centre, is constructed within a magnificent Victorian building, formerly a water pumping station (and yes it really does look like a Castle!). The Castle is a dedicated climbing centre and is one of the premier centres in Europe. Since it first opened its doors to the public in October 1995 The Castle has grown, and is still growing! The centre is now spread over 5 floors...with more yet to come. It brings us great joy to be able to include roped climbing into our services and with over 450 lines available, there’ll be plenty to get stuck into!
