Nestling in the heart of the beautiful Peak District, England's largest National Park, Go Ape Buxton is one of our highest courses. The site is walking distance from the historic spa town itself, and you'll also find the two-million-year-old natural limestone cave Poole's Cavern, in Buxton Country Park.

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.
