The Climbing Unit is the ultimate indoor climbing experience for anyone of any age or ability. Any competent adult climber can bring a child down any time during our opening hours (max 2 children per adult). For the children who want to climb without their parents, there are the following options:
Kids' Club
Our Kids' groups run every:
Monday evening:
4:30pm to 5:30pm for the 5 to 7 year olds; and 5.30pm to 7pm for 8 to 16 year olds.
Saturday morning:
10:30am to 11:30pm for 5 to 7 year olds; and 11.30am to 1pm for 8 to 16 year olds.

No experience necessary but booking is essential. £10 per session. During school holidays we have taster sessions every Monday and Thursday at 10:30am to 12 noon.

Kids' Parties
We offer kids' parties for children from 6 years old. All of our parties are staffed by instructors with experience working with the age group. Our party packages all include entry, exclusive use of the party room and instruction on the roped and bouldering walls. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments and treats.
Taster Sessions

Every school holiday we run climbing taster sessions for children and adults to have a go and see what indoor climbing is all about.

Other Options
Why not book a family induction and then the whole family will be free to enjoy a climb any time you like?
