Great venue. Bags of space inside with an excellent choice of routes. Newcomers are made welcome but also given space to do things in their own haphazard way. Snacks and food available too at great prices and you could literally spend hours in here (hands permitting). We will be back 👍

Fantastic for first timers or old hands. Has a varied range of routes and good set of walls such as the cave, boulder, slabs and overhangs, renewals and fresh challenges set every 3 or so weeks. Very friendly staff, who will help with any problem or give advice on climbing. The centre offers a training area with a beast maker... More

Met up with friends for the kids one hour activity session in half term. Have been on several occasions and the kids have great fun (10 year olds) but was a little disappointed by the instructor they had. She didn't interact very well and wasn't much fun and made the session rather dull and boring. They had more fun after... More

Went over with colleagues for a bit of fun one evening. Lady who showed us around and took us through the induction was very patient with us. If you have not done this before, then the induction session is definitely needed! I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected, the men in our group got a bit competitive, but... More

I cannot recommend Boulder Central highly enough. For families and folks trying out climbing for the first time the staff are super helpful and the wall will accommodate all levels. For more experienced climbers there is everything you would expect from a top class climbing facility; campus board, finger boards, woodie, steep roof area, etc. I live in Birmingham and... More

Minus the odd school trip (about 10+ years ago) I haven't really climbed before, yet this venue has clearly designated paths for beginners, pros & everyone in-between so it's a great choice for all. The prices are pretty good for climbing & show hire. Also for the food/drinks too with a decent choice. The only thing they could improve on... More
