Summit Centre is located in the heart of the Welsh Valleys, south of Merthyr Tydfil and is overlooked by beautiful hills and woodland. The residential centre is just 25 minutes from the M4 and boasts stunning indoor climbing walls, bouldering, group accommodation, a cafe, outdoor play area, a man-made caving system, Aerial Adventure course and over 20 instructed activities. Summit Centre is a great choice for family days out in Wales, climbers, school trips, youth group weekends, birthday parties and church retreats.
COVID -19 Update (20th March 2020)
With the recent government announcements, it is with great sadness that we have to announce we will be closing the climbing wall from 6pm this evening (20th March 2020) until further notice. The cafe will be open 10am-3pm on Saturday for take away food only, for which we are happy to accept donations. It will then also be closed until further notice.
We want to say thank you to our incredible community who have supported us over the last ten years through thick and thin. Our fundamental aim within Rock UK is to transform young lives and at Summit Centre we do that through being a place of hope in the community providing activities, a warm welcome and a safe place to be for families, friends and climbers. We hope that it will be possible to continue doing this in the future.
We will continue working with local government to help provide whatever services we can to the community. We are extremely thankful for your ongoing support, the kind words and all help we’ve received so far.
