Climbing Towers

Blackpool Climbing Towers, situated on Bancroft Park in the South of Blackpool, offer a unique outdoor location for climbing.

Blackpool Climbing Towers are tripod structures providing overhanging, vertical and easy-angled slab routes offering climbing for both the complete beginner and experienced climber alike.

There is also an open access bouldering wall situated on Bancroft Park.  The Bouldering wall is made from natural stone, 2.5 metres high and 12 metres long.  The wall utilises different rock types throughout providing a variety of climbing moves to aid specific training. 

Blackpool Climbing Towers offer the opportunity for both casual climbers and groups to access their facilities.
