Climbing walls are a great way to start climbing and to stay fit. We’ve made it easy for you to discover local climbing wall in your area. Take a look at our BMC Climbing Wall Finder.
Climbing walls are popping up left right and centre around the UK. What's the best way to find out where the closest wall to you is? Check out the BMC Climbing Wall finder.
Whether you want to learn the ropes, boulder with your friends, or try your hand at an Olympic speed climbing wall, use our Wall Finder to help you find the local wall of your dreams. Or even shop around for future walls to visit on your travels around Britain.

Climbing walls are the easiest way to try out climbing – they’re also great fun. There are now over 450+ walls throughout the UK. Some are dedicated to lead climbing (high, with ropes), others bouldering (shorter, with no ropes). Many provide both. All the larger walls offer a range of introduction sessions if you’re starting out. Many also run skills and coaching sessions to help you develop your climbing.
