  • Do not get me wrong, The Castle is a brilliant climbing centre. There are bags of routes for anyone, whether your into bouldering, top roping or leading; there is so much choice. But the place has...  more »

  • Amazing place. Can not get bored really. The people and staff are very nice. Nice community. Cafe serves super nice soups. Vegetables sourced from impressive garden where you can chill as well. I would recommend to anyone even just to try one time. Great place
  • I used to really like this place, but lately it's been going to the dogs. It's incredibly busy all the time, most of the walls are aging and becoming too polished to use them effectively, there is no temperature control (freeze in the winter, bake in the summer) and no ventilation, so your lungs fill up with chalk dust. The centre is probably okay if you're a new climber or you haven't been anywhere else yet, but once you climb in a few other places, you quickly realise that it's simply not a top wall anymore. It's a shame, but all the management cares about is £££, otherwise they wouldn't have let it get into this state.
  • Good place to climb and boulder, friendly staff. You pay around £13 for the day if bought separately, and can also rent climbing shoes for £3. All climbing and most of the bouldering are inside, but there's an outdoor bouldering area as well which is not bad. Oh... yeah... it's a castle! 🏰
  • The castle is my local climbing gym, it.gets very busy especially weekday evenings. Sunday evenings are nice as there is a members only lock in from 7 until 9. Most of the staff are absolute gems and so friendly but there are a couple (I think who are supervisors/managers) that let the centre down and are really unhelpful, very unfriendly and frankly jobs worth's. Other climbers there I've found to be helpful and encouraging.
  • Absolutely wonderful! Full of a ton of good quality routes, both for boulder and lead climbing. The whole castle is full of small hidden places where you find more routes. There are also external boulders. I recommend registering online before getting there, it will make everything faster!
