Please read our statement regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

To do our part in protecting the community during the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be closing The Tide Climbing Centre and postponing all classes and events effective March 17th until further notice. Please sign-up to our newsletter to keep up with the latest developments at The Tide. While we know what an important role climbing plays in our lives, the safety of our members, visitors, staff, and community is our top priority and therefore have decided that this temporary closure is the best course of action we can take to protect our community during this time.  We will be freezing all memberships during this time, so you will not be charged until the centre resumes operation.

Because this situation is complex and evolving rapidly, we will continue to keep you posted with updates – be sure to check in with us on Instagram, Facebook, or through our emails for additional news and announcements. If you would like to continue to support The Tide Climbing Centre and its staff, please send us a message to unfreeze your membership or purchase a gift card to be used at a future date. Please let us know at

While this is such a difficult decision to take and we will miss seeing you all around the centre, we are confident in the strength of our community and look forward to being able to safely welcome you back to The Tide climbing centre on April 1st.

As we continue to keep our collective well-being at heart, please stay safe, stay positive, and be well. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

The Centre
Where it all happens
With over 600^2m of bouldering we have the largest Bouldering facility in Cornwall. From our steep, overhanging competition wall to our top out boulder and technical slabs. We have it all to suit any climbers requirements.
Auto Belays
Auto belays allow all climbers to ascend to the top of our tallest walls without the need for a belayer, simple clip in and go. We have 4 Auto belays in our climbing area with 2 of them being on our fantastic transparent wall! Race your new climbing friends to the top.
Roped Climbing
As well as our fantastic bouldering and auto belays we have 18 top rope lines and 2 fantastic Lead climbs going through our Archway. Our top ropes have a range of grades on a variety of wall types.
Wellbeing & Fitness
We pride ourselves on not only being a fantastic climbing centre but also being able to offer a variety of classes in our Fitness Studio. We have yoga classes running daily as well as our Fitness sessions run by our staff members.
The Cafe
What makes a climbing centre, is the cake!
You can expect the best from our cafe, we pride ourselves on the variety of locally sourced ingredients we use, whether it’s the coffee that comes from Cornico just up the road, or our cakes from Pink Peach Cake co, who provide us with a great variety of vegan options. Our suppliers are based within 10 miles, we are trying to make our cafe as sustainable and eco-friendly as we can!
In our fantastic cafe we also make fresh stone baked pizzas to help keep you fuelled throughout your climbing session.
