Buxton

You’ll find one of our more challenging sites here in the heart of the Peak District. This leafy course is beautiful in all seasons – a lush green tunnel high up in the tree tops.

This is one of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK which features one of our biggest Tarzan Swings.  With this claim to fame we’ve added a whole host of zip wires meaning there’s an exhilarating extended course with its own tree-to-tree section to fly through.

Hide out in the High Ropes

Just the journey in to Buxton Go Ape, through the beautiful Peak District National Park, will set the scene of what awaits you. Conveniently located within walking distance from the historic spa town of Buxton, and just under an hour’s drive from Sheffield city centre, you can spend the whole day in England’s largest and oldest national park.

Explore the area on one of the many walks including Mam Tor and The Great Ridge Walk which offer one of the best views in the Peak District. 

For beautiful views across the town of Buxton climb to the top of Grin Low to find Solomon’s Temple, a Victorian folly built on a Bronze Age barrow. Discover Poole’s Cavern, the first ‘Wonder of the Peak’ and one of the finest limestone show caves in England.

Once you’ve walked, climbed and hiked your way around the area, why not head back to Buxton, a thermal spa town famous for its stunning ornamental gardens, Georgian and Victorian architecture.

  • Was fantastic fun. Instructors were very friendly and safety instructions beforehand was very thorough. Instructors were on hand if need be but just kept an eye on you from a distance. Every one involved all said they would all love to do it again and would highly recommend it. I had my 2 dogs with me and it was as easy for me to navigate the course and take photos and videos of my family. Well done everyone at Goape.

  • Just such great fun! Would highly recommend for a group of students like us. Super friendly, really helpful staff. They even moved our booking back an hour for us when half our party got lost on the way

  • My friends and I had such a fun time, despite the unforgiving rain. The instructors were very welcoming and made sure we were fully prepared before taking on the course... they were also very present throughout the whole course. I would totally recommend doing this course with the new layout and more zip wires it made our trip unforgettable. Well done Buxton Go Ape 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
