Around the Centre

The Gym

We have a gym which has been designed by qualified Gym Instructors who are also expert climbers to build your body to enable you to climb to your full potential. We concentrate not on muscle mass but on strength, stamina, key muscle capability and power-to-weight ratio.

Our lead Personal Trainer is Jo Gordon, who was UK women’s Bouldering Champion. Jo runs the Dynamic Fitness Regime, a bespoke programme tailored to your personal fitness and climbing goals. An initial consultation is free; if you decide this is for you, the charge is £30 per session of an hour.

The NCC Cafe

Why not come and take a seat in our café on some comfy leather sofas which look out into the climbing areas? You could also make use of the tables and chairs in our viewing gallery to get a little bit closer to the climbing action.

At the pool café we serve a variety of hot drinks, cold drinks and food; paninis, cobs and a selection of delicious fresh cakes.

We can provide simple food such as pizzas and small cakes for parties, you are very welcome to bring your own food and drink to consume in your party room.

The Shop

The Shop sells everything you need to climb at the Centre: rock boots, harnesses, chalk bags and chalk, belay devices, karabiners and ropes.
It also sells stuff for outdoor climbing on rock: protection devices such as Friends and Rocks, Quick-draws and the like.

We also stock a variety of cool clothing and gifts for climbers.

You can buy Gift Cards for everything at the Centre, both products from the Shop and all the Courses we offer; you can get a Giftcard via this Website if you go to the Book tab, and you can send it direct to the recipient with your own personalised message!- there! Gift problem solved!

Party Rooms

We have two attractive Party Rooms- the Cabin (pictured here) and the World Map Room. There’s plenty of room for the kids to chill out and have something top eat and drink after their climb and romp in the Burrow.
