Coronavirus Update

 

We're Reopening! 25th July. 

Exciting news - we will be reopening our big wooden doors to the public on the 25th of July - and we are psyched! 

Please bear in mind that we've had to make some changes to do this safely. We will only be accepting pre-booked time slots which you'll need to purchase online, and we're already well underway with changes to the centre to allow for social distancing. Oh, and we've made a few snazzy improvements to the centre whilst we were at it to enhance your climbing experience even more. 

We will keep you updated as much as possible. Please subscribe to our newsletter for latest news straight to your inbox, and follow us on Instagram or Facebook

Thank you to everyone for continuing to be a part of the Castle community at this time.

The Castle Team

Changes to the Castle

  • Strictly limited number of people in the building at any one time
  • All climbing will be in Single Visit 2-hour time slots, which MUST be booked in advance online through our booking portal.
  • You need to indicate what type of climbing you want to do (top rope, lead, bouldering, or autobelay) to help us manage capacity throughout the centre
  • We're increasing our opening hours! From Monday 27th July we'll be open weekdays from 8am-10pm and weekends 9am-10pm, last entry at 8pm.
  • A one-way system will be in operation so you can navigate the centre whilst social distancing
  • Face masks must be worn inside whenever you are not climbing or belaying (e.g. at Reception or walking between areas using the one-way system)
  • The Café and Shop will be moved into a separate building, with a temporary kiosk selling the essentials for the time being

Thank you in advance for your help and co-operation to make these changes work for the safety of your fellow climbers and our staff

Your Membership

At this time we will be unable to resume our memberships offering as before. Trying to balance the benefits we want to offer for our members, and what we can safely provide, has proved impossible. At the moment, we can’t offer unlimited access to the outdoor boulders whilst restricting numbers safely. It is for this reason we have come to the conclusion that we won’t be able to reinstate our memberships right away. For now, we will be operating on an exclusive pre-paid single visit basis.

Memberships have been frozen from the 21st of March. It would not feel fair for us to automatically keep charging for a membership you are unable to use – it’s just not how we do things. 

Courses & Events

Courses are back! We're resuming courses in August but they're open for bookings already. We've been thoroughly examining how we run our courses and how we can continue to teach the important skills to keep you safe as a climber whilst taking all necessary precautions against COVID-19 as well. We're reducing class numbers, keeping classes seperate from general climbing as much as possible and helping our instructors with new best practice guidance as well. 

Due to the high number of enquiries, please email bookings@castle-climbing.co.uk with enquiries. 

All competitions and in-person social events remain cancelled for the time being. We're working on some exciting online events - coming soon!
