We have a new artist at the Castle! Our revolving gallery is now hosting work by the talented Holly Weston from Weston Paints, who is as likely to be seen climbing as painting.
“I was born in Hackney and grew up in east London,” says Weston, who has been painting and drawing since childhood, inspired by artistic parents. “My dad was a traditional gilder and signwriter and painter of pub signs, and my mum painted murals all over my bedroom walls – and any other walls she could get her paintbrush on!”

If you are thinking of bringing your dog climbing in London, then here’s everything you need to know.
Can I bring my dog climbing?
Different indoor walls have different policies. At the Castle, you can bring your dog as long as it’s off peak – meaning weekdays before 6pm.
During our busier, peak hours you will not be able to climb with your dog. If you’re unsure, please call ahead – don’t just show up with your dog as we may have to turn you away.

We’ve spotted a worrying development around The Castle lately. Our duty managers have spotted a new harness appearing on our climbers, which are currently on sale through websites like Amazon and claim to be proper climbing harnesses. Unfortunately, they are not.
