Last updated: 16/10/2023 

Need something to warm you up this autumn? Whether you're looking for a weekend adventure or a staycation treat, a Go Ape experience is the perfect way to fill your seasonal craving for adventure.

If you’re feeling brave pitch up at a campsite among the falling autumn leaves OR choose to stay cosy inside a hotel or B&B. Whatever you choose, we have some thrilling and unique ideas of how to spend these glorious autumn days!

There are 36 locations across England, Scotland and Wales, check out some of our spotlight locations below! 

Treetop Challenge at Leeds Castle

Fancy a little bit of culture as well as an adventure, Go Ape Leeds Castle is the perfect location. On the same site as ‘one of the loveliest castles in the world’ this dizzyingly high Treetop Challenge course offers a royal trial.  Its highest point is an immense 13m which, allows unmatched views across the Castle and its vast parkland. However, the courses’ crowning glory is undoubtedly, the incredible 250-metre zip line. Do you have the nerve to test this regal challenge?

Once you’re back on the ground why not check out what else the park offers. Explore the castle which was home to six queens and Henry VIII himself. Watch a breath-taking free flying falconry and aviary display. Or wander around the 500-acres of parkland, the choice is up to you!

Should you wish to enter the grounds of Leeds Castle, customers are required to reserve a time slot for entry, further details can be found here.

Forest Segways at Moors Valley

If you want forest, hills and the sea then the South coast is for you! Our award-winning location at Go Ape Moors Valley is just 10 miles from Bournemouth and is full of things to do for all ages. Swing and bounce in the tree tops with our Treetop Adventure, Treetop Adventure Plus, Treetop Challenge and Nets Adventure courses. Or, if you prefer a view from the ground, whizz through the forest on our all-terrain Segways. Test your off-road skills and gaze over acres of autumnal forest.

If you fancy even more fun bring, or hire, a bike to test our cycling trails – there is one for all levels. Try out the Tree Top Trail, a five-metre high, 200-metre long wooden walkway up in the trees and don’t forget to bring a picnic – or stop in for a treat at the Seasons restaurant!

Axe Throwing at Coventry 

Get ready to channel your inner warrior and daredevil at the thrilling Coventry, Coombe Park! This site not only offers our Treetop Challenge (Plummet optional), Treetop Adventure and Treetop Adventure Plus courses but also a unique Axe throwing experience! Release your stress as our expert instructors teach you how to fling your cares away. The secret lies in technique rather than strength though so every-one should be able to hit that target (or maybe even bullseye)!

Once you’ve proved your worth as a medieval warrior, relax as you get lost in 500 acres of lush woodland. Explore the formal garden, the Abbey, the wildflower meadows and the deer park. You could honestly spend a week holiday wandering around this site alone. Be sure to pack a picnic or treat yourself to a delicious lunch at our Visitor Centre as you wander this stunning site.
