Bedgebury

This award-winning park 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.

  • My son says: “I loved Go Ape! I like how there was one for children. I like how it was up in trees because everyone likes going up trees. I like doing fun activities in the woods. I liked the two circuits - the best one was number 2! The staff are very nice and very helpful. I was not exactly tired afterwards - a bit tired but I had a bit of energy left. I will definitely go again - yes!”

  • 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)

  • 3rd time at bedgebury forest and as always a great day out for all

    Paul Halliwell

  • My daughter loved her Go Ape session at Bedgebury. The last slot on a Sunday afternoon meant she had the whole thing largely to herself! Happy daughter but shivering parents watching in February!

    Rachel

  • It was a brilliant experience. We had so much fun at Go Ape and was laughing all the way around the 5 courses. We would definitely return and would highly recommend going.

    Megan Sutch

  • Took the kids and my husband for his birthday and we all had an absolute ball. The training was thorough and our guide was very patient. The queues were a bit frustrating but only because we couldn't wait to get up in the trees again.
