Climbing is a sport I have very rarely taken part in, yet is hugely enjoyable and easy to access (if you have a friend with the expertise and equipment who is willing to take you!). We went to Harrison's rocks in Kent, where the sandstone cliffs are extremely accessible and it is very easy to set up (for your expert friend...).
