Following my recent discovery of a new hobby (bouldering) I have been looking for places in or near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. It seems we are central to a few places, and handily a few are close to my commute to/from London. For a total beginner, shoe hire was essential, so I have included these prices where possible:

Bourne End Junior Sports Centre – Climbing Wall

The most local to High Wycombe and unfortunately it isn’t very well detailed on their website, but they are responsive by email/phone- I have not visited yet but hope to do so in the coming weeks. 🙂

Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday – 18.30 to 21.00
