Wyre Forest

(Worcestershire)

Near Kidderminster

Set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests.

NEW Tree Top Junior Now Open.

Half the species of UK butterflies and moths can be found in our forest in Worcestershire.

Our Tree Top Adventure at Wyre Forest, near Kidderminster is home to some of the most ecologically significant woodlands in England. Go Ape offers two to three hours of fun and adventure. It’s a great way to get outdoors and try some a little bit unique. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery. Then we add a smattering of tree top high wire, tricky crossings and unforgettable zip wires.

If you’re looking for days out in Worcestershire, why not get in the Go Ape spirit in one of Britain’s largest remaining ancient woodlands? Wyre Forest is cared for by the Forestry Commission so there’s plenty of other activities for you and your tribe if you’re trying to find things to do near Worcester.

You can take in the sights and smells of the statuesque oak and fir trees that line the course for great days out, or even make a adventurous weekend of it and explore the 6000-acre forest.

“Oo oo ah ah” …  Don’t forget to enjoy a cuppa in our very own Forest Cafe.

Rated 5 Bananas Justyna - Tree Top Junior, on 22 September 2014
This was a great experience for the children (aged 7 and 8) and really pushed them out of their comfort zones. Great courses although could be a little more imaginative.Have visited the similar experience in France and so the UK based event now seems a little dated.Quite expensive for the time you get, lasted an hour, but would really like longer to have a full day out.All in all, a great time was had by parents and children alike.
Rated 5 Bananas Nicole - Tree Top Adventure, on 22 September 2014
Christmas present from my brother for Steve Nicole Hayley and jay . I was nervous about doing it don't like heights! But doing it with hubby daughter and her boyfriend was a boost .mike our safety instructor was very funny knew a lot about dolphins ! but very good I was worried wouldn't remember the how to use the safety clips etc moving from one platform to the next but it wasn't a problem .zip wires were amazingly scary as you launch your self off the platforms but brilliant ,the whole adventure was scary but brilliant adrenalin rush would definitely do again .

Took a family group for an early birthday treat. Great Fun, all had a really good time :) Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Rated 5 Bananas Edward - Tree Top Junior, on 21 September 2014
My son is not quite five. We enjoyed it but found it a bit hairy. I do not think I would recommend it for under fives
Rated 5 Bananas john - Tree Top Junior, on 21 September 2014
This was a great experience for my 8 year old son and myself. The course was well designed and first took us around an easier section and the zip wire before taking us to the more advanced sections. The staff were really helpful and although it was a busy day they took the time to explain everything and make the young ones feel relaxed even though some were nervous at first as can be expected . We are looking forward to doing it again sometime and move on to the adult one when my son reaches 10.
