The Arc has bouldering and roped climbing (inc auto belays) and roped lines outside overlooking a free, unsupervised skatepark. We offer adult and youth courses and sessions for new climbers. Find out more about our centre and read answers to your FAQs.
The Arc Cafe is open to the public for pastries, paninis, pizzas, burgers, kids meals and more daily. Our extensive decking area is dog friendly. Swing by for takeaway coffee and food.
Built by Chippenham Borough Lands Charity with support from Sport England, the climbing centre is operated by TCA. The Arc is The Climbing Academy’s fifth centre, our third in the south west of England. The skatepark is unsupervised and therefore users skate at their own risk. Wiltshire Council set restrictions on skatepark opening times. See more in FAQs.
FUNDING The new climbing centre and skatepark was funded from CBLC's investments together with a grant of £200,000 from Wiltshire Council towards the skate park and £100,000 grant towards the climbing centre from Sport England.
