THETFORD

Suffolk

The mother of all our courses is set within 50,000 acres of pine and is the UK's largest man made lowland forest. It's patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves provide the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life. The Go Ape adventure began at High Lodge Thetford back in 2002.
