Welcome to Boulder UK, our mission is to provide an inclusive state-of-the-art bouldering facility that motivates new and experienced climbers to realise their full potential.
New to climbing or Boulder UK?
Bouldering is a form of climbing close to the ground above matting, so ropes and harnesses are not required. It is an excellent way to tone-up and get fit and develop key fundamental skills including balance, flexibility and strength.
Bouldering is a very sociable activity, where people of ages and backgrounds can come together to climb. It’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
Bouldering can be many things to different people. Some climbers solely boulder indoors and use it as a more interesting and stimulating alternative to the gym and way to keep fit. Other climbers will use bouldering as training for their outdoor projects and upcoming climbing trips.

Why Boulder UK?
In September 2017, a team of dedicated climbers opened Boulder UK in Preston, replacing the original wall that was established in Blackburn in 2003. We believe our strong history, the dedicated, friendly and highly experienced team of staff and excellent facilities mean there is nowhere better for beginners and experts to come and climb and train!
