Go climbing in a 'Castle'

The Castle Climbing Centre in Stoke Newington bills itself as "the premier indoor climbing centre in South East England" and is officially the most visited in the country.

For those of us who know nothing of climbing, a Standard Taster Session is available for £20, and more experienced climbers can take advantage of 450 routes serviced by more than 90 ropes, and that sounds like a lot.

The Castle itself is an old Victorian water pumping station on the Stoke Newington/ Finsbury Park borders and is open weekdays 2pm-10pm and weekends 10am-7pm. Bizarrely there is a DJ night on a Thursday night (for climbing to, rather than dancing). For more information visit the website at www.castle-climbing.co.uk

  1. Yes, it's quite a startling addition the skyline, just round the corner from organic Stoke Newington main street!

    There's a pleasant cafe in the centre, where you can have a beer and a lunch and watch people out on the waters doing kayaking and stuff.
