Find out more about our centre and read FAQs. The Arc Cafe is open to the public 7 days a week, for pastries, specials, pizzas, burgers, kids meals and more. Our cafe and extensive decking are dog friendly and overlook a free children’s play park with a sculpture walk nearby.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME
Come and try climbing
If you have not tried roped climbing before, you’ll need to book a Beginners Course. If you’re an established climber you can just complete forms and you’re off. You don’t have to book or complete a course to go bouldering, just turn up. You can hire shoes. Save time by completing a form online (which includes a safety video) in advance. Over 16s can boulder unsupervised but under 16s must be supervised by a registered adult. Each adult can supervise up to 2 others per visit.
