Arrive early
On arrival our lovely reception team will build your account and give you a quick safety knowledge test.

What to wear
We always recommend stretchy or loose-fitting clothes. You can’t go wrong with gym shorts and a t- shirt. Hire climbing shoes and chalk from reception.

The first climb
An instructed lesson isn't compulsary for your first time. However, if you would feel more comfortable having an instructed first session we offer group intro sessions and 1 to 1 coaching.


Keep everyone safe: Don’t walk under climbers on the mats.
Keep it clean: Don’t wear climbing shoes in the toilets.
Keep it clear: Don't leave anything other than your chalk bag on the mats.
Avoid spills: Don’t leave open drinks anywhere in the climbing area.
Stay covered: Keep your shirts on during climbing activities.
Mind your language: Maintain a respectful and positive atmosphere for everyone.
For your safety. Please watch!

Why climbers love it here


Called in to take alook at what all the fuss was about - and can highly recommend it! Food offering is excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. Had a tour around the climbing area and yoga studio. The facilities are excellent and the place has a real vibe about it.

Amazing Centre

Great climbing centre with passionate staff. The cafe offers a great selection of food and drink, either for a mid climb refresh or as a destination in its own right. Substation seems to do a good job as there's a refreshing mix of familiar & fresh faces that keeps the energy high.

A fave

I've been here 6 times in the last year with family and friends and it gives me a real buzz. The climbing routes are varied for ability which make for interesting challenges. Resets often enough make each visit a bit different and the space is big enough that you don't get bored. Highly recommend!
