LEEDS CASTLE

Kent

Rising majestically from the still waters of its moat and surrounded by 500 acres of parkland and gardens, Leeds Castle is without a doubt one of the most beautiful venues in Kent. Coined ‘The Loveliest Castle in the World’, it is the perfect place for a great day out. Our South East adventure boasts zip wires 20m above the forest floor and 250m in length, a hair-raising 25m crossing, plus breathtaking views of the castle.

Know Before You Go

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.

What is Tree Top Junior?

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!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Cannock

28th March 2017

Great time at cannock for me and my friends. Some bits were not open when we visited but that didn't think our visit. Thoroughly enjoyed it felt very safe. Thanks to all at cannock that looked after us. Especially the girl that helped my sister when she got stuck on the cargo net as she was too tired to pull herself up. Not sure of her name but she took control of the situation!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Sherwood

28th March 2017

I took my mum for Mother's Day to do the tree top adventure. (She's terrified of heights!) the staff were sooo good and offered so much support and encouragement! After many meltdowns and screaming my mum completed all 5 stages of the course! The staff at sherwood pines "go ape" were fantastic, I would most definitely recommend the team and the location. We had a brilliant day! Even if my mum still hates me for making her do it!!! (Just kidding) Thank you go ape!!!!

It was Mother's Day do I booked Segway adventure for my daughter (20years young) and I. Thought we would make a day of it and have a walk around the firest trail after Segway so packed a picnic enough to feed a small family of 10!! Alas it wasnt to be....... My daughter had an accident coming downhill on segway and landed in the ditch after going over handlebar and was in shock and far too much pain to carry on as she could barely walk so not the best Mother's day as i had to drive straight back home so that was our adventure ended im afraid😢

It was amazing! All the staff were friendly, helpful, happy and seemed to enjoy their job (lots of genuine smiles). My two daughters and I had a blast for Mother's Day - it was a perfect way to celebrate the day together! Great for confidence building in young girls (ages 6 & 9) and awesome for bonding for all of us!
