Newcastle Climbing Centre
Situated in the glorious former church of St Marks, the handsome listed building now provides a spectacular climbing environment that welcomes families with a whopping inside height of 15m and over 1200sqm of climbing walls for roped climbing, lead wall and all kinds of bouldering. Whatever your standard of climbing from complete novice to hardened expert there are features and challenges to suit your ability and your ambition!
Children aged 5 and upwards may climb at the Centre under the supervision of a registered adult climber. If you are aged between 7 and 14 years you may join their Junior Rock Club under the supervision of friendly, qualified staff. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
They also offer Taster sessions for Juniors under 16 years of age so they can come and give it a go with committing to expensive equipment or training packages. And if you are between 14 and 17 years old you may climb unsupervised at the Centre with parental consent and after passing an assessment.
