The Bear Grylls Adventure Climbing

Get ready for unforgettable fun as you challenge your brain, body and reflexes with incredible activities inspired by Bear’s love of adventure. We’ll get you fully briefed, geared up and ready to climb, dive, fly, zip, leap, scramble and explore. Escape the ordinary and experience the extraordinary at The Bear Grylls Adventure.

Welcome to The Bear Grylls Adventure, where you Climb, Dive, Fly and more. Open all year round at the NEC Birmingham, this incredible attraction offers action-packed experiences you can share with your friends and family.


Get harnessed up for an indoor climbing experience like no other. Warm up by bouldering routes inspired by the giant formations of Fontainebleau (France) before taking on belay climbs, including the famous face of El Capitan (Yosemite, USA).
