ROCK BOX Sessions

You can climb at the ROCK BOX on an open session or book the whole ROCK BOX for your own group.


ROCK BOX Taster – a one hour session in the ROCK BOX where you can choose to climb whichever elements you like. Suitable for children and adults and ideal as a family activity.

HAVE a GO – this is our shortest session at 20 minutes and is ideal as a first experience to see how much you like climbing in the ROCK BOX. We think LOADS! You will get to climb on 3 or 4 of the ROCK BOX elements during the session.


This is where ROCK BOX really comes alive. Not only will you get to complete all the ROCK BOX elements but we will split your group into 3 teams. Then you are competing against yourself, the elements and your buddies!

Group climbing can be booked as a single or double session

Single session  – 1 hour, 12 people

Double session – 1.5 hours, 18 people


The ultimate party experience! Not only will you get to climb all the ROCK BOX elements but the session includes party games, using the ROCK BOX elements, and the ROCK BOX challenge where we split each party group into teams to compete against each other. The speed wall, head to head climbs and seeing which team can collect all of their ROCK BOX tokens, which are of course located at the top of each ROCK BOX element!

Cancellation Policy

We understand that from time to time it is necessary to change plans at the last minute and have developed a cancellation policy that minimises the cancellation charges:

After booking and up to 2 days before the scheduled activity - 10% of activity fee as a cancellation charge
Less than 2 days - 100% of activity fee unless the slot is re-booked when a 10% charge will apply.

Conditions of Use

Risks "The British Mountaineering Council recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement"

Although the Rock Box facility is an artificial environment the risks involved are no less serious than when climbing outside on a crag or mountain. There is an additional risk that bolt-on holds can spin or break.

The Soft flooring is designed to provide a more comfortable landing for climbers but does not remove all risk.

Climbing beyond your capabilities is likely to result in a fall. Any fall may result in an injury despite the safety systems in place to prevent it. You must make your own assessment of the risks whenever you climb.

Our duty of care

The Conditions of Use and Do's and Dont's posters displayed at the Rock Box centre are not intended to limit your enjoyment of the facilities. It is part of the duty of care that we, as the operators, owe to you, the customer, by law. As such they are not negotiable and if you are not prepared to abide by them the staff must politely ask you to leave.

Your duty of care

You also have a duty of care to act responsibly towards other users of the centre. Statements of 'good practice' are posted around the centre adjacent to the relevant facilities. These describe the accepted methods of use and how customers would normally be expected to behave towards each other.


A junior's parent or legal guardian must give their permission to take part in any activity at the centre. Junior consent forms must be signed by the junior's parent / guardian prior to any activity. It is expected that party organisers / group co-ordinators will have gained this permission prior to their visit.

Loss of personal property

No responsibility can be accepted for any loss of or damage to customers' personal property. No valuables should be left unattended.
