Indoor Climbing London

London has a number of climbing facilities for parents and children that offer clubs, one-to-one tuition, group tuition and some also cater for children?s parties.

Most of these facilities have indoor climbing walls. These are artificially created walls with fixings/holds that you grip with your hands and feet and have become increasingly popular in recent years as an urban sport that allows you to experience some of the joys of rock climbing.

There are a number of different types of climbing walls:

  • Bouldering Walls - low walls that don't need ropes and have a large crash mat on the floor.
  • Roped Climbing Walls - vertical climbing walls with fixings that are for more experienced climbers using ropes. These vary in height but are normally over 8 metres.
  • Traversing Walls - These are low walls that allow you to climb along rather than up, these are ideal for children.

Climbing is great for a child?s confidence and fun for children of all ages, though most of the clubs listed below have a minimum age of 4. All child sessions/clubs are under the supervision of an experienced climber and some of the clubs listed below offer free 'taster' sessions for an hour, see their website for details.

Below is a list of climbing facilities in London, if you have been to any of these let us know how you got on by posting a comment below. Alternatively if you know of any climbing clubs not listed please email us.
