Please note that on weekends, opening hours for under 12s are restricted to 9am-2pm, with last entry at 1pm. Adults can supervise a maximum of two children each.

If you're planning to bring children to the centre, please read our supervisor guidelines carefully before arriving, to avoid disappointment. Thanks!

Bank Holiday opening hours are 10:00 - 22:00, except during the Christmas period where special hours apply, see details in the Holiday Hours section below near the time.

Bank Holidays are Peak Time all day.

Busy & quiet times

Weekends: Saturday mornings are generally less busy than Sunday mornings, so if you're bringing children that can be a good option. For adults, 2-6pm is normally much calmer on both days as under 12s aren't allowed to climb during these times.

Weekdays: There's normally loads of space during our off-peak times (before 5pm Mon-Fri). If you're after an evening weekday climb, the quietest times are Monday nights and Friday nights (except for our monthly Friday night comp, see the events page for upcoming dates)
