A climbing centre is coming to intu shopping centre.

Rock Up, will include 30 climbing walls towering at 8m tall, and will offer a climbing experience for all ages in Watford.

It will be situated in the former Clas Ohlson shop space, and will reach over three floors high.

Watford Observer:

The 8,450 sq ft space will also include a soft play area and a cafe.

Rock Up will open later this year but no exact date has been given yet.

The climbing centre is the latest of intu's new development which will see 14 new stores, 11 restaurants, a cinema, and a bowling alley.

Heidi Duckworth, executive chairman at Rock Up, said: “intu Watford is a key destination for the Rock Up brand. Not only does Watford’s catchment meet our core demographic providing a family friendly offer, but with 38 million annual visits to Watford high street and 100,000 students within the catchment, there is huge potential for Rock Up.

"It’s an extremely exciting time for us to open this year alongside the many great brands and leisure operators coming to intu Watford.”
