Questions Answered

Thinking of coming for a climb? Check out some of our frequently asked questions for more information before your first visit to our Tunbridge Wells Centre.

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a type of rock climbing. It is where you climb smaller walls or rocks without a rope. Instead, there are big crash pads under you in case you fall.

Most Common Query:
Do I need to bring anything?

You can rent specialist climbing shoes at reception. You can also hire chalk if needed - chalk is useful for drying the sweat on your palms, or you can buy chalk from our shop. You can bring a reusable water bottle as there is a refilling station near reception.

When are you open?

All three walls are open seven days a week. Monday to Friday, they all open at 10am and shut at 10pm. At the weekend, Canterbury opens at 8am until 6pm, while Chatham and Tunbridge Wells open at 9am until 6pm.

There are restricted opening hours for under 12’s - they can climb until 6pm in the week and 2pm at weekends.

Do you run kids clubs?

Yes, we run clubs across our three centres. Our Little Monkeys clubs are for 5-7 year olds, Rock Ninjas are for 8-11 year olds and Academy are for 12-16 year olds. To find out more about our kids clubs, please select which location you are closest to: Canterbury - ChathamTunbridge Wells.

I'm scared of heights, can I still climb?

Yes! You can traverse to get started (climbing along rather than up) and when you feel more confident you can start to climb a little higher each go. You don’t have to get to the top, you can just practice one move at the bottom until you feel comfortable.
