Welcome to our first high ropes experience in West Yorkshire and a triple whammy of aerial adventures. Muster your courage and summon your strength for this Challenge course! You’ll need it for the Tarzan Swing, tree-to-tree zips and the free-falling Plummet. Head over to the Treetop Adventure+ if you’re finding your tree climbing feet. This course offers variety and choice, so you get to decide how far out of your comfort zone you’re willing to step. And little explorers can’t go wrong on the Adventure course – the perfect introduction to tree-to-tree crossings and brilliant zips.

An aerial adventure trio

There’s a stately feel to Go Ape Temple Newsam, despite being situated just four miles from the centre of Leeds. 

Based in estate grounds with a 500-year-old country mansion and beautiful woodlands, you’ll feel like Lord and Lady.

One of the many brilliant things about this course is that no matter how challenging the obstacles are, the permanent belay is quietly reassuring. So, once you’re hooked on, that’s it for the duration. All you need to do is concentrate on is having fun.

When you’re done, slip the harness off and head over to the Manor House, a truly impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion described as one of the best stately homes in Britain.

The famous ‘Capability’ Brown designed the concept for the grassland, woodlands, views and vistas.

Sit back and enjoy a picnic in the lakeside garden or the Georgian walled garden. Alternatively, head over to the Tea Rooms for a bite to eat. If you’re partial to a bit of shopping, there’s also a gift shop.

Temple Newsam is also home to an award-winning rare breed conservation farm which is one of the best-loved family attractions in Leeds.

  • Really good experience both me and my 6 year old loved it.

    Bethany Johnstone

  • Fantastic experience made even better by the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff

    Rachel Furby

  • As professional as you would expect this to be (and needs to be), the time my son and I spent on the L3 course was great fun and the staff were superb. They were reassuring and helpful whilst we deliberated over some of the more daunting challenges. I'd recommend the GoApe Temple Newsam to anyone!

    Emma Abel

  • Really good day out, good fun. Only downside, was stuck behind very young kids too scared to move, so spent along time waiting on a few of the tracks. Also Simon was annoying, almost too serious, and felt like he was reading a script, everyone else was really nice tho!

  • An amazing afternoon that we will remember for a long time. The staff were very friendly and helpful which helped remove any nerves we had.
