The coastline around Portland is a dramatic one with jutting cliffs that loom high above the sea, and if the sight of them doesn’t inspire you to have a go at climbing then the chances are nothing will. If you do find yourself wondering how it feels to climb your way to the top of a rock during a Dorset Holiday, then might we suggest booking a session with the professionals at Hamworthy Outdoor Education Centre.
Hamworthy Outdoor Education Centre offer group climbing sessions for everyone from complete beginners to those who can scuttle their way up a boulder like a lizard, and they run the courses on the cliffs around Swanage and Portland.
They’ll provide fully qualified staff, all the equipment you’ll need and transport to get you started, and all courses include abseiling at no extra cost. The friendly staff are trained to help get the most out of new climbers, and no matter what your age climbing will be a challenge you’ll never forget. For many, it only takes one go at climbing a real rock face with the wind in their hair and they’re hooked for life, so what starts out as a holiday adventure often turns into a new hobby.
