Are you adventurous and love the outdoors? Do you live in London and think "Crap, it's too cold outside but I want to do something great!"? Then I suggest you pay a visit to The Castle Climbing Centre. It's a great place to go with a couple of friends or even by yourself to learn to climb.

Fitted with multiple high walls and routes for all levels (beginners, intermediate and expert) and very...more
