Wyre Forest


Near Kidderminster

Tree Top Adventure and Tree Top Junior set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests.

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 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.

And Wyre Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Junior Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

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.

Don’t forget to enjoy a cuppa in our very own Forest Cafe.

Rated 5 Bananas Gabriella - Tree Top Adventure, on 28 May 2015
I really enjoyed the last tarzan swing , i even jumped off and bashed into the net. i was really scared of the sliver rings but i manged to get thorough i felt very proud. My family had a great time with laughter especially with the zip wire. i love go ape so much that i could do it again if i have enough money to go again!

The guy on the zip wire was absolutely fantastic with my son who was scared. He knew the right things to say to make him feel at ease. The safety brief was thorough, if a little speedy. Because we had little ones, I would have preferred if they took their time explaining. Overall we absolutely loved it and will definitely return again, the team were lovely and really looked after our family. Oh by the way, on the confirmation email, the links were not working (tried to click for directions) no biggy for us as we just googled the address but thought you might like to know.

Best bits are the zip wires, they take you breath away
Rated 5 Bananas Naomi - Tree Top Junior, on 28 May 2015
I took four 9 year olds on the go ape junior course. All the boys obviously really enjoyed it but they found it extremely easy. They were practically running around the course - it would be better if it was longer - or there was a harder bit for the older children?? I believe that they would have got more enjoyment from the adult course, it's just a shame that they are way too short. They probably won't even hit the hight limit when they are 10! Watching from the ground, I feel the adults on the junior course really slowed the children down and it seemed a shame as the kids only get 1hr! I don't particularly think adults should be aloud on the junior course it's not fair on the kids!!
