We have been busy making sure your visit to Substation is as safe as possible.


We have been really busy cleaning the whole centre, painting and best of all – re-setting every single route in the whole place.

Whilst we really can’t wait to see you all back on the walls, please read the following safety measures we have put in place before you come flying through the doors..!

  • Social distancing should be maintained throughout the centre

  • Face coverings are to be worn when at the counter

  • If check-in is busy please queue outside

  • Arrive ready to climb as the changing rooms will be closed

  • Hand sanitising stations to be used when entering and exiting the centre, when leaving one area of the centre and regularly applied during your visit

  • Each area of the centre will have a capacity, this will be monitored by staff and should this limit be reached, access will be restricted to the centre until there is sufficient space

  • Rental shoes must be worn with socks and will be completely disinfected after each customer

We won’t be operating a booking system for climbing – each part of the centre will have a maximum capacity and our staff will monitor this closely. However, given our floor area and current guidelines we don’t think capacity will be exceeded under normal conditions.


The studio is looking better than ever with a fresh paint job and some very fancy new artistic wall panels, it will be back in action from Monday 27th July with the following safety measures:-

  • Hand sanitising stations to be used on arrival and exit of the centre

  • Face coverings are to be worn when at the counter

  • If check-in is busy, customers will be required to queue outside with 2 metres spacing (bring a jacket if the weather is being British)

  • Please arrive within the 15 minutes before their class to limit congestion

  • No more than one person in the waiting/shoe removal area

  • Cubby holes are to be used by one customer at a time

  • You must bring your own mat – Our mats and props will be removed from the studio

  • Deep clean between classes including a full floor mop and anti-bac of door handles

  • Extraction system to be utilised between classes, the power of the fan will extract the whole rooms air within a matter of a couple of minutes

  • Please arrive dressed for your class as changing rooms will be closed

  • You’re more than welcome to wear face coverings during your class but this is not compulsory
