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 Carol - Tree Top Junior, on 20 August 2014
I love the challenge and bonding experience with the children. There was a lady further on from us who had fallen and had to be rescued which must have been awful for her but the team handled it extremely professionally.
Rated 4 Bananas Will - Tree Top Adventure, on 19 August 2014
Very friendly staff but a bit of a wait to get briefed and equipped after our allocated time (in which I could have had a coffee). There were very few alternative routes. It would have been good if the course was less of a linear experience. Younger members of the family really enjoyed it but it does seem pretty expensive for what you get. We went to a similar experience in France a few years ago which was rather more exhilarating.
Rated 5 Bananas Lisa - Tree Top Adventure, on 19 August 2014
Fabulous experience. Would highly recommend
Rated 5 Bananas Diane - Tree Top Junior, on 19 August 2014
Epic day at Go Ape with my 7 and 11 year old boys today!We all felt a bit apprehensive to start with, but those nerves soon disappeared as we started climbing and took our first zip wire ride. Boys can't wait to come back in the October half term!Staff were helpful, informative and encouraging and were keen to ensure that we'd all had a really good experience.
Rated 5 Bananas Ed - Tree Top Adventure, on 19 August 2014
We were brilliantly looked after by the team at Wyre Forest and as a party of 2 adults and 4 kids (aged 10 - 14) we were briefed on what to check at every stage. Overall we had a huge sense of achievement after completing the course which challenged us all in different ways. The kids were far less frightened than myself and my partner but all the same, there were some wobbly moments for each of us at various points throughout our adventure. It's the best family day out I think we've ever had and I reckon we'll be talking about it for years. Great fun, great laughs and a fantastic day out.
