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.

There were 6 in our party and we had the best time ever. we arrived just before our time slot & were promptly registered in, given a safety talk & all harnessed up within 15 minutes! We found the instructors on the ground & in the tree tops were AMAZING they helped our experience a lot, we would definately all return. We were also allowed extra time around the course because of hold ups which was also very generous & given a 10% voucher for our return. A great day out thanks GO APE.

I did mess up one section and so was reluctant to try the next one. But as the excellent instructor said, as gently as possible, 'You have to go across to get down' and showed me the 'easy' way to do it.I then thought the following traverse was fantastic, without any worries, thanks to the patient advice.A truly marvellous experience. Right from the excellent safety demonstration, through to the final zip line.At one point, in the cool misty forest light a hawk flew silently just over our heads. Wonderful.I now have memories that I will never forget.I shall get even more when I plan to be back at the same time next year.

It was a very enjoyable day but we overrun a lot - we arrived as suggested on website 20mins before hand and then had to wait about another 20+ mins even to start the briefing because there had been a hold up earlier in the day and also the one just before us. This was not really explained until we actually sat down for the briefing! The person briefing us was excellent and made us very relaxed and not so stressed about being so delayed but it would have been nice if some how we could have passed the people in front who were having great trouble scaling the ladders! I know there are people doing these things to get over issues but I have to say that when you have been before and know what to expect it is very very annoying to have to wait over 10 mins at each station just for someone to climb a ladder. That was a very negative point to our day as we had left dogs alone at home and had left plenty of time to get back to them but not enough for such hold-ups. I do think there should be some way of allowing experienced parties to overtake inexperienced parties.
