Important updates on what we have in store for the year ahead...
The Castle is incredibly excited to announce that in 2017 we purchased two buildings next to the Castle. We’re looking forward to developing these buildings over the coming years! The Castle is a listed building, meaning it can take longer to get planning consent. Watch this space and we’ll release more details as soon as we can.
As you all know the Centre can get very busy during peak hours, and we’re hoping the developments will create much more climbing space for everyone to enjoy. In the meantime, we’ll soon open a new traverse climbing area (on floor between the Wells and the Café level) and we’re re-developing the Pen and mezzanine bouldering area’s later this year.
We constantly evaluate the impact busyness at peak times can have on H&S. Staffing across all departments has increased and we have not increased our peak time course activity over the past few years. To accommodate the increased custom, we have also made changes to the building itself: new Café, new reception & entry system, new changing facilities, new locker floor, more climbing.
The Castle community is incredibly important to us, without continued support The Castle wouldn’t be able to develop year on year. With this in mind, we haven’t put our prices up.
Prices changes on some items in the Café will come into effect on 2nd April. This is due to supplier price increases over the past couple of years. We hope you still find our prices good value and thank you for your ongoing custom.
