The Wall and Basement Cinema

All year round

Looking for something different? Come try indoor rock climbing!

The Wall is open 7 days – rain, hail or shine and is located right in the centre of town. The wall is almost 20m at the highest point. There are 56 different climbs, 28 lead climbs and 26 top ropes They have a 17m caving ladder that the kids love (big kids too). If heights scare you, go see them and overcome your fear in a safe and controlled environment. What a buzz! The cinema is locally owned and operated by helpful, friendly people. It provides the staging post for local book clubs and often hosts special screenings for groups and organisations. Relax with a wine or tuck into some wedges before the show. They also do great milkshakes! All year round. Check online for times.
