  • I am Calshot Caravan Club member. Very expensive for what you get. Nearly £50 per year for membership and the site starts at £15 per night low season, but hookup (only 7 available and not bookable) is another £5. Facilities are very poor - shared gents & ladies toilets that need updating, showers are somewhere else (never used them). Pitches are not bookable. No hardstandings. However the views are outstanding which is why people join.
  • So much activity packed into one space! The velodrome is great fun, especially in a group. The dry slope is a bit short but indoors so can be used in all weather. But the highlight for me is the climbing wall, which is extensive and has a good spread or grades. There are climbs there for everybody and they're generally set well.
  • Calshot Activities Centre is a brilliant place to go for a day out. I have personally experiences many of the activities that are on offer and thoroughly enjoyed the day out. The velodrome is a brilliant place to go to if you like to do track cycling as well as train for your next race.
  • Great place for a quick bite. Food made on site. Great place to sit and watch the sea traffic.
  • Some of the best top-rope and lead climbing routes in the Southampton area. Offers full equipment hire for new climbers. It's quite a long drive but parking is available. It is one of the pricier walls to attend.
