Adventure Days Out in Surrey | Go Ape Alice Holt Forest

Quick book

just so you know ...

If you’re visiting us over the next few months, you may notice some ongoing improvements to the grounds (it takes work to look this good, you know). As part of the work, there’ll be a brand-new café, so you’ll soon have somewhere to grab a well-earned cuppa after tree-time.


During construction, there will be a few diversions in place. Simply follow the picket signs around the habitat trail, and after a short two-minute walk, you’ll see the Go Ape cabin. 

We look forward to welcoming you in the trees and unveiling the new look in June!

ALICE HOLT

Surrey

Alice Holt is a royal forest on the Surrey/Hampshire border, situated some 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Farnham, Surrey. Part of the South Downs National Park, our leafy hideout boasts an epic backdrop and is just a stone's throw away from where they filmed the opening battle from Gladiator and, more recently, scenes from Skyfall, Captain America and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Know Before You Go

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather, so bring along a mac if it’s raining! Make sure your stomach area is covered. Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

It’s a fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate crossings and finish on a high (literally) with an awesome zip wire.

Can I go on as an adult?

If you want to join your little monkeys then just book yourself on. Bear in mind the course is designed for children so the safety cable won’t be quite where you'd like it.

Are there toilets?

Yes there will be, but they may be a little walk from the Go Ape cabin. Please allow some extra time for a toilet stop!
