Following on from the government’s announcement today we’d like to clarify where we stand as the Castle Climbing Centre, and inform you of some increased measures we’re putting in place.
It is only by adhering to these measures, being kind and considerate of the climbers around you, that we can keep our community safe and help all London climbing centres stay open.

We were going to keep this under our hats, but frankly we’re just too excited to keep it quiet any longer…
We have been working on a brand new top-notch climbing training facility, coming to you this October!

Exciting news – the Café and Shop are back and better than ever before!
When looking at social distancing and changes we’d need to make the Castle safe and still friendly, it became clear that our Café and Shop spaces were a bit small and awkwardly shaped to give you a good experience.
But rather than just make these spaces work differently, we decided to make the most of the opportunity and properly transform these spaces.
Our friends over at the Association of British Climbing Walls (the ABC) commissioned the world-leading research team in De Montfort University to undertake a study of the COVID-19 and how chalk might deactivate virus on climbing holds.
The full report is due out in August. This is just one report, without peer review as yet, but we're psyched to see where this emerging area of research takes us.

Plan Your Visit
Following the government advice on leisure activities, specifically that “more outside spaces will open if they can do so safely, including outdoor gyms and playgrounds” we are really pleased to say that, after some careful planning, we’re able to reopen our outdoor boulders. We consider the boulders an outdoor playground – don't you?
We’ve got extra security measures in place to keep the area safe for everyone, so please read on to find out everything you need to know before you return to the Castle.
