Your Visit

Updated 21st Dec

Red Spider is under ‘Tier 2:High Level’ restrictions. But these higher level restrictions mean the following changes to our measures:

  • You should not climb at Red Spider with anyone who is not from your household or support bubble.
  • Masks – you are now required to wear a mask when not on the wall; including while waiting on the matts
  • You can still: boulder with members of your Household or Support Bubble, have a coffee & cake seated in our café and use the training and stretching areas.

Thank you to all our climbers for sticking to these rules and helping to keep our wall’s open.

We want to make everyone’s climbing at Red Spider as safe as possible. We ask all our visitors to:

  • Wash or Sanitise their hands frequently
  • Where possible arrive for your session ready to climb
  • Adhere to social distancing measures, keeping at least 2 metres apart from other climbers and avoiding busy areas
  • Make sure to check-out when leaving

Whats On

We currently have a reduced number of sessions running and ask people to make sure their bookings adhere to government advice:

  • Maximum of one household per booking, excluding youth only sessions
  • Climbers only to attend the session, no spectators. Sessions with just children may have one adult chaperone who is not climbing
  • If you or any member of your booking party has coronavirus symptoms please stay home
  • We ask that members make sure their visits adhere to the latest government guidance on travel. The best place to make sure your visit adheres is here, UK Gov. Coronavirus Rules.

Book a Session

Our fun action packed castle and pirate ship can provide hours of entertainment. No need to book just show up and relax in our cafe mezzanine while your kids entertain themselves.

  • No more than one adult accompanying a group in the castle at any time (up to our max supervision ratio of 1:4)
  • No spectators allowed apart from the chaperone
  • One session per day for each child
  • First come first serve basis with no advanced booking as before

A great way to introduce friends and family to climbing. Our fully qualified instructors will show you and up to five other people the delights of indoor bouldering.

Our Youth Access Test is for 14-17 year olds who have experienced bouldering now feel ready to use Red Spider without the supervision of an Adult or Instructor

Candidates should be confident that they have the skill set to pass the test.  

If you need a refresher before taking the test we would recommend booking a private lesson with two people to brush up on your skills here .
