Googling "virgin active fitness clubs in london with climbing" returns a result with a link to a pdf with all Virgin sites and activities. It shows that, as of 2016, 200 Aldergate and Twickenham had climbing walls.

I would have included the link but it just opens the pdf.

Edit - Video here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H05s8tTqRac shows the wall (sort of) at 52 seconds for 200 Aldergate. Yes, I'm bored this morning!

Edit 2 - Video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwPVgtqZpXw for Virgin Twickenham wall.

Regards,

TJB.

Mmmm....   Aldersgate one looks like a spinning disk with holds on, climbing wall equivalent of a treadmill.  Fun but not really a wall,.

@Jan van Schaik  There are plenty of bouldering walls and some good climbing walls in London but probably not those in Virgin Active.    Where are you (or going to be) based.

oh thanks!
I'll be fairly central - staying in Canary Wharf, and working near Waterloo station...
Can you think of anything around there-ish?

Not Virgin Active.  But the Third Space (the old Reebok gym) in Canary Wharf has a climbing wall about three floor high with autobelays.

Boycott all Virgin companies. Branson is a money-sucking leech on the NHS and railways.

Not an answer to your question, but I'm pretty certain you will satisfy all your climbing needs at 'The Castle' https://www.castle-climbing.co.uk/the-centre
If you want just bouldering, try the Stronghold in Tottenham https://www.thestrongholduk.com/, or Vauxwall http://www.vauxwallclimbing.co.uk/the-centre/ or the Biscuit Factory https://www.archclimbingwall.com/centres/#centre-info which all have good transport links..
