Planning your visit to Go Ape is simple

  • It’s tough, but time to decide which Go Ape adventure (or adventures) you’d like to do…

  • Select the location that suits you best. Remember different locations have different adventures available.

  • Plan your visit

    Check our website for availability and book your preferred date and time. We recommend arriving a little early to allow time for check-in and to familiarise yourself with the safety instructions.

Extend your date

The date doesn’t have to end once you’ve finished your Go Ape adventure. Here are some ideas on how to extend the day


Connect with your loved one on a wander in the great outdoors. Put some effort into making it special by discovering somewhere new nearby. If you’re looking for ideas, check out our Top Forest Walks Guide.

Our courses are located within a diverse range of beautiful environments and even some official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Forestry England or National Trust websites are also good place to look to discover nearby walks. A stroll around the gardens of a stately home certainly sounds romantic to us!

If you’re feeling more adventurous and live in the right place, you could go more remote and plan a wild walk in the hills or by the seaside. No matter what, find a beautiful, secluded place with a good viewpoint.

Food and Drink

Don’t you think that food always tastes better outside? Forget the fancy restaurant and share a delicious outdoor picnic instead! Dig that thermos out from the back of the kitchen cupboard and pack a picnic filled with your favourite things for a romantic meal outside.

Looking to treat yourself to an indoor option? Head over to a café, restaurant or local pub and replenish your energy after your adventure.


It still gets dark early at this time of year so use that to your advantage. What’s more romantic than spending an evening with your special someone hand in hand gazing at the stars?

Extend your adventure by staying out into the evening and enjoying the great outdoors at night. Remember to wrap up warm, bring a torch and know how to get back to your car!

Take Only Memories, Leave Only Footprints

Make sure that this is the mantra of your date and be sure to take any rubbish away with you. Please do not carve your initials and/or a love heart into anything in the forest, it may look romantic in movies, but it can harm the tree and ruin the scenery for others.

One final tip

Still make the effort to dress up. Sure, a warm jacket and sturdy boots are most likely needed at this time of year, but you can still put together a look to catch your other half's eye.

A smart shirt and a nice pair of trousers, or perhaps a cute jumper and scarf that stands out. They'll be sure to notice.
