Rock UK – Brand new adventure centre opens in South Wales

Rock UK Summit Centre Stand 46 @Summitcentre1 This summer, Rock UK Adventure Centres will open their brand new outdoor activity centre.

It boasts a stunning 18 meter high indoor climbing walls and a bouldering area. The rural location means that Summit Centre is lucky enough to offer multiple off siteactivities. These include climbing on local crags, gorge walking through real waterfalls, caving, canoeing, kayaking and eco warrior activities. This allows groups to experience nature first-hand and get a real sense of adventure ...
