Adventure Highlights

This is a great day out that has something for everyone; whether you want to challenge your limits and test your head for heights, or take a more relaxed approach and try a spot of climbing. With all equipment provided and conveniently located under an hour from London Bridge by train, all you have to do is bring a winning attitude! The sandstone crags of Harrisons Rocks are bolted for top rope climbing so it is the perfect setting to practice your skills safely whilst enjoying all the exhilaration of climbing outside. Set amongst the beautiful trees of Birchden Woods, this feels a lot further away from London than it actually is! Indoor climbing experience is preferable to make the most of this day, but this is a perfect day out for beginners all the way to the more advanced who want to try outdoor climbing!

Adventure Details

Day 1

Start time 10:00

We’ll start the day meeting at Harrison's Rocks Car Park or Tunbridge Wells Station depending on what works for you. Let us know and we can pick you up from the train station, before heading over to the best outdoor climbing spot you'll find around London. Our instructors will then assess your ability and provide support where needed. If you’re new to climbing, we’ll give you the full introduction and teach you how to climb including belaying; knot tying; use of correct equipment; injury prevention; movement skills and climbing techniques. Half-way through the day we’ll pause to re-fuel and relax in the beautiful surroundings. We’ll provide energy bars and a healthy lunch that’ll have you ready and raring to get back on the wall! You’ll have the chance to try different routes, progress your climbing and challenge yourself. By the end of the day, you’ll feel more confident with your climbing abilities, like you’ve had a workout and achieved something awesome! (high fives included and actively encouraged!)
