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.
Introducing… the new Shop and Café!

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.

As you’ve probably seen on the news, the outbreak of Coronavirus has reached the UK. We are asking all our customers to please be particularly mindful of hygiene when you're at the centre.
We get a huge range of climbers here, and we have to assume that some will be from the higher risk categories who have weakened immune systems. We really appreciate your help and support in keeping the centre and everyone here safe and well.
