No spaces or suitable times? You can also book yourself onto an adult Taster Session here. We are more than happy to have under 18’s in these sessions if you’re happy to climb with bigger people.


This is a great experience for all youngsters looking for a bit of excitement, suitable for ages 8 and up. During the Climbing Taster Session you’ll taste the thrill of indoor climbing with our highly experienced instructors. The aim of this session is not to teach you everything, just to make sure you have fun, get plenty of climbing in and discover how much you enjoy climbing.

You don’t need to climb with your child so, if it’s not for you too, then we would just ask that you stay for the session – you can sit and relax whist watching from the viewing area above (with your feet firmly on the ground!).

Quick points

  • No previous experience needed
  • Great fun for 8 years and up
  • Great fun for adults too
  • All equipment provided
  • Ideal for individuals & groups

Session timings

  • 1½ hours of excitement, usually on Saturdays or during the holidays
What a great experience, Frank was brilliant and encouraged us to do much more that I thought we would dare to! I've just booked myself on to the intro course and very excited to be coming back. Thank you!!!

My wife and I loved it, very welcoming bunch of people and we had lots of laughs (at each other mainly). I can't believe we've not heard of Southampton Climbing Wall before having lived in Eastleigh for 20 years and always looking for fun things to do. We'll be recommending to friends.

NEVER would I have thought I would do this let alone enjoy it so much. This was a voucher bought for me for my birthday to come with a friend and it was a fab time, Alex did a great job of dealing with us and sorry for the giggles 🙂 Hope to see you guys again.

The boys and I had a great time, thank you very much. They are now both on the Junior Climbing Club waiting list and very excited that they'll be learning to climb on a weekly basis.
