Bedgebury

This award-winning pinetum adds a true forest experience to your Go Ape exploits. With both a Treetop Challenge and a Treetop Adventure there’s something for thrill seekers and the little ones too.

Home to an exhilarating 170-metre zip, this course will have you navigating your way through a tunnel of greenery as you immerse yourself in this dense forest.

Bit nervous? There’s a continuous belay so once you’re hooked on, that’s it for the duration.

Adventures in an award-winning park

Set in a Grade II listed landscape, you’ll find Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest on the Kent/Sussex border. We’re very proud to share the space with what is considered to be the largest and most complete collection of conifers in the world. With such a big reputation you can imagine that Bedgebury draws a global crowd.

There are 2,500 acres to explore. With three walking, three cycle (family and mountain-biking), plus four orienteering and running trails, you’re spoilt for choice. 

Take the family on the play trail – while you enjoy the calming ambience of the forest, the children can clamber on the play furniture enroute. There’s lots for them to discover including the shipwreck, the mighty tree house and the giant spiders webs.

You can also take in the stunning Pinetum views with a picnic or while enjoying some refreshments at the Bedgebury café which serves a wide range of locally sourced food.

  • Brilliant fun! We did the Tree Top Adventure at Bedgebury Pinetum. The staff were super professional, helpful and friendly. My ten and twelve yr old boys handled the course well, the new click’n’twist system was a little tricky to get the handle of but after 20 minutes it became easier and staff were always around just in case we had problems. All in all, it was excellent fun on a bright sunny February day. Will definitely go again! Thank You!

    Lisa Summers

  • The Kids had a great time ! Weather was not an issue , the place is well kept and beautiful. We highly recommend! ( my only issue is the parking fee - it would be nice to have one free car parking space if paying for a kids party as £13 on top of all else seemed steep)

    Britta Boyer

  • Absolutely fantastic experience, great friendly staff. The only thing stopping getting a 5 star was the cost of the parking which is £13.00. And for that they didn’t even wash it. In my opinion I think it should be subsidised if you are at go ape.

  • Such a good experience, for the children and adults. Will deffo be going again! Staff were amazing with children, and very friendly and chatty. Made you feel at ease, and were also very encouraging. Thanks for a great day!!
