  • We didn't think much of this venue. Hard to find a parking space and when we walked in, my first thought was 'Is that it?'. A few walls to climb up on. Our eldest would only use one of the walls as he...  more »

  • Whether beginner or experienced, child or adult, the climbing works (or its partner the mini works) is definitely worth a visit if you want to give bouldering a try. Bouldering is climbing without ropes or supports. It's far more freeing and easy to get started. Some walls are not very high and the floor is all crash mats. Excellent facility. Lovely knowledgeable staff. Decent and cheap tea and coffee. Ethically minded too. Free hot drink if you walk or cycle there.
  • Love this place. Some fantastic indoor bouldering to be had. They have a small climbing shop and a cafe which sells snacks, hot and cold drinks on site. Staff always seem friendly. The only down side is the parking. It is a shared carpark and spaces can become limited at times but you can safely park on the road outside if you need to.
  • Love this place. The parking is of course a challenge in busier periods, and it must be a bone of contention for the locals to have their streets overtaken by hairy climber types and their cars, but if visitors park considerately then it should be OK. The place itself has climbs for abilities of all levels, recently some more challenging climbs have gone up which is good. The Works has been revamped and updated several times while I have been going and its nice to see the place be invested in as its obviously popular enough to warrant it. Nice atmosphere, it feels like a welcoming place to just go, chill out and climb. Can get quite busy at peak times, so consider that when visiting.
  • Great fun! First time climber but didn't feel out of place or too under skilled - it was an amazing morning with lots of different routes to try and really tested your mind as well as your foot work. I'll be back!
  • Mini world-class went for the first time about a month ago and loved it, the girls are great, lots of toys and books for little ones if they don't fancy climbing, plenty of space to spread out and one climbing piece has a slide in it!
