Big Rock Climbing Centre is an exciting all weather venue, with fun activities suitable for the whole family. It's great fun for kids and the perfect antidote to boring gym regimes for adults! Humans have been climbing trees to escape from wolves and other scary stuff for thousands of years so don't let modern life supress your natural instinct to climb. Conquer our high roped walls for an unbeatable sense of achievement, experience the freedom of climbing without using a rope in our low level bouldering area or try something that's entirely off-the-wall: CrazyClimb featuring a series of wacky climbing challenges! Have fun and get fit! The aim is to ascend a climb using only the designated coloured holds - think of it as join the dots but much more interesting! Choosing the correct sequence of coloured holds and reaching the top provides an unbeatable feeling and a really fun workout. No previous experience is required and anyone can have a go. Spectators are free to relax in the seating area overlooking the climbing walls and can enjoy a selection of drinks, snacks and meals from the Big Rock cafe. Free WiFi is even available!

Visited this morning with my six year old daughter. We both enjoyed it. Would have loved more challenging climbs, perhaps the kids area is a little restrictive for adults but we both had fun, it was well organised and safe. If I had a criticism...More

My 7 year old son loved his climbing taster session. The instructor did a great job of making him feel safe and comfortable and he gained so much in confidence over the 90 minute lesson. A great introduction to climbing.
