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.

  • My husband accompanied our daughter on the junior course and she LOVED it. what an experience. Her confidence grew as she crossed each piece of equipment and the zip wire...well that was her favourite. Not so much the hubby's favourite but it gave me a good laugh to see his face. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. Brilliant experience cant wait to go back. Highly recommended

  • My son and husband had a great time here at the weekend! The staff were really helpful and friendly. They put my son at ease and gave him the confidence to start the course. An hour was just the right length of time, too. They managed to do the Junior course 4 times. Thanks for a great morning, Go Ape- we will be back!
