Fantastic family session
Dec 2020
Booked my family (6 of us in total) in for a taster climbing session today, back home and we're still buzzing. I cannot fault anything from the booking support I received down to the actual experience. Our instructor Jo was an absolute delight and she made sure every member of our family from 7yrs through to 52yrs was involved and enthused from start to finish. I cannot rate these guys highly enough and know we will be back for more x

Friends and Family Session

Me and my 2 kids had a great 2 hour session with Tilly. They and I loved learning to do our knots, bilaying and of course climbing. Thank you, we will be back.

Fantastic with kids
Feb 2020 • Family
I took my 4 children to the spider club today. It was absolutely fantastic, they enjoyed every minute. Staff were great with them, giving positive feedback. We often struggle bringing the kids climbing as many places are a ratio of 2:1 with an adult, the spider club is supervised by staff, meaning that children with more than 1 sibling don't miss out.
My youngest daughter has always been fearful of these kind of activities, but she climbed to the top in no time! A first for her. All the other children are really friendly and those that are more experienced support the new ones.
Kids are already asking for block bookings for their birthdays!

Dripping in awesomeness
Sep 2019 • Friends
Visited with a friend whilst up this way with work. It is very much an old school style climbing centre littered with history. There is so much variety and the use of features and holds makes things so much more interesting. Grades were reasonably consistent and I really liked the route setting. Plenty of autos and one in particular on a very challenging wall is amazing fun. I am desperate to return and I have a little 6 year old climbing machine that can't wait to join me. The Foundry was very highly recommended to me by some very experienced climbers and I can see why!

Terrible Trip
May 2019 • Friends
Staff are highly rude, not all but some. Completely screamed at for making a mistake, not how teachers should be teaching. Understandable that it’s important, however when trying your best and being new on your first lesson I do NOT appreciate the hate and unfriendly atmosphere created. One again, this does not apply for all the staff members as most were lovely and very accepting with me coming into their environment, however for a few this does not apply and my day has today been ruined due to them.

Great day out
Aug 2018
Went with my 2 kids 3 times over the school summer holidays. Their request, not mine. Got a few years of climbing experience personally, so that made the days a little easier. (Not too sure what the arrangements are if you do not have any experience) The facilities are clean and well kept, all the staff were very polite and professional. The large selection of different walls and gradients are challenging for both the professional and beginner alike. Will definitely be visiting again during the next holidays.

4th visit with granddaughter
Sep 2018 • Family
Great atmosphere, friendly staff and members, it's been nice to see her progress over a short time.Instructors are very friendly, Isaacs particularly, has great skills with the kids. At 12 pounds plus a pound for shoes, it's great value, with sessions being two hours with a short break, young people are either climbing or belaying for the session with full on instruction.I have been going for years, but not recently, it was nice to return and see it running so well.
