About us

Mission statement

The team at Boulder UK want to share our passion for the sport / lifestyle with our customers.

Our mission is to provide an inclusive state-of-the-art facility that motivates new and experienced climbers to realise their full potential.

Our story

Boulder UK is a state-of-the-art climbing facility located in the Walton Summit area of Preston.   It was opened in September 2017 by a team of dedicated climbers.  This team was heavily inspired by the original Boulder UK climbing centre, opened in Blackburn in 2003.

Boulder UK Blackburn was the first dedicated plywood bouldering wall to open in the UK. It had an outstanding reputation within the climbing community. Boulder UK Blackburn was home to the infamous Plywood Masters competition.  It was the training ground for many of the UK’s top climbers.  The new Boulder UK climbing wall in Preston endeavors to build upon this strong reputation.

Boulder UK really is a climbing wall built by climbers for climbers. Our painters, joiners, builders and even sound engineer are all active climbers!  The climbing walls at the gym are made solely from birch plywood and built by a team of experienced climbing wall builders; who also happen to be keen climbers.  This means the wall angles at the centre closely replicate those you would expect on routes and boulder problems outdoors.

Our new bigger, state-of-the-art centre also means we can better cater for climbers of all abilities.  With one of the best training areas in the country, we can support climbers to reach new levels of performance.  We also believe with a dedicated, friendly and experienced team of staff, there is nowhere better for beginners to learn how to climb!
