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 one 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!

We were lucky with the weather and no queue though "overlooked" for a minute or two before being addressed to. Would be better to have at least 1 1/2 hour since the course was quite simple for "us monkeys" and some other visitors 'blocked' us. Thus having some alternative direction / path would be a dream to avoid traffic jams :) Then it would be fully worth every penny. We enjoyed! Thank you.

Excellent. Couldn't fault it. All ages in our group thoroughly enjoyed their experience. P.S. Really like the question at the beginning of the survey ' How young are you?', so refreshing!

To start with being so high up was scary, but once we got use to that it was a great challenge getting around the course. When we went back to the easy loop a second time I was wondering why I had found it so scary to start with. It was also great exercise. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. I expect we will go and try a different course at some point, but might wait until our youngest can join in as well so that no one is having to stay on the ground with him!

I felt the young man doing the safety briefing could have been a little more friendly and polite even though he was doing a safety briefing. The course was brilliant. The young man who assisted when we finished was very friendly and nice.

The staff did not monitor the amount of people on crossings, sometimes there were more than 2 which mean my children were a bit rushed. Overall though it was a wonderful experience for them. Great day out, thank you 😊

A fabulous experience and a great day out. Would suggest a braking system for the zip wires as every time landed on my back, not good for an almost 60 year old, suffering a bit the next day. The overall experience was excellent and the staff were very polite and helpful as my wire was unable to complete the course due to fear of heights, and it was a very hot day.

The option to take an alternative route on some of the more difficult stages was an improvement on our last visit and allows you to build your confidence The junior adventure is great for the little ones. Great day out for all ages .........................
