Kent's largest indoor climbing centre - Find out About Us

About The Climbing Experience

The Climbing Experience is Kent’s largest (and most exciting!) indoor climbing and bouldering centre. Our amazing Fun Wall adventure area offers an introduction to climbing for everyone, and a state-of-the-art bouldering facility, which includes a 30m competition wall, offers you space to test yourself and develop your climbing skills.

The bouldering facility also features a cave, plenty of slab, and two standalone boulders, one a top-out and the other an arch. With new routes set every week, there will always be something to test you, whether you are new to bouldering or an experienced climber.

Climbing isn’t just great for your physical fitness; it’s also a fantastic mental workout. Just as it challenges your body to become stronger and more flexible, it also stimulates your brain and focuses your mind and spirit, making it the ideal sport for people wanting to de-stress and increase mindfulness.

“When you ride your bike, you’re working your legs, but your mind is on a treadmill. When you play chess, your mind is clicking along, but your body is stagnating. Climbing brings it together in a beautiful, magical way. The adrenaline is flowing, and it’s flowing all the time.”

– Pat Ament, climber and author

Who we are

The Climbing Experience has been set up by two passionate Kent-based climbers whose dream has been to open an indoor climbing experience in the heart of Kent. Our vision was to create a community-focused space which allows people with different skills and abilities to discover, explore and share our love of climbing.

We created The Climbing Experience based on two fundamental values – a love of climbing and a passion for excellent customer service.

Here you’ll find a safe, superbly maintained environment, staffed by climbers totally committed to ensuring that your experience – whether you’re a pro or a first-timer – is the best it can be.

Our Services

On top of our state-of-the-art bouldering gym and Fun Wall climbing adventure area, our other services include kid’s NIBAS coaching, a dedicated yoga and fitness studio, excellent café and meeting room services as well as free WIFI.
