Following the easing of restrictions, the Castle team want to give you an update about what you can expect from your favourite climbing centre over the next month or so.

The Castle will be continuing with slot booking for everyone until 1st August

That means you will need to continue with slot booking by discipline (bouldering, lead, top rope, Autobelay or the Forge) up until and including Sunday 1st of August, whether that is a pay per climb visitor or included in your Castle Access Pass. More information about Access Passes is below.

As I am sure you are aware the Government has put together an initial Roadmap out of lockdown which was announced last week and if all goes to plan will see us back to some normality in the coming months!  

When will the Centre Open? 

Based on the information provided by the Government, the Castle will phase re-opening, starting with the outdoor boulders on 29th March and the main Centre by 12th April. 
Planned Dates: 
Outdoor Boulders Open from – 29th March  

Easy cancellations online before the start of your session – you are in control! 

If you can’t make your climbing slot for any reason you can now cancel your slot yourself online, up 24 hours in advance*. No hassle, no quibbling, no need to speak to a member of staff – it’s entirely your call, so you know for certain whether your climb is going ahead. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have come into contact with someone who has, please cancel your booking and stay at home following medical advice. Thank you.

Now that London will be moving into Tier 3 tomorrow, here is an update on climbing at the Castle in tier 3.

The Big One: Will the Castle be open?

YES! Sports and leisure facilities remain open in tier 3. As we fall under the same classification as an indoor gym (the closest approximation, anyway), we will be open under tier 3 restrictions. 

We get the low-down from Mike, the Castle’s Wall Development Manager, about the latest news from The Forge and the extensive renovations around the Castle in 2020.

UPDATE 27-11-2020:

We're Reopening! 8am on Wednesday 2nd December the Castle will be reopening the doors to welcome you back. All our COVID-19 safety measures will still be in place, including our new strict hygiene measures, mask wearing policy (whenever you're not on the wall, unless medically exempt) and pre-booking is essential for all sessions. More details to follow. Book to Climb slots will be opening this weekend. Watch this space! 

Update 01-11-2020

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. 

Join our team! We are looking for a organised and effective person to take on the role of HR Officer for the Castle Climbing Centre.

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
