This award-winning pinetum adds a true forest experience to your Go Ape exploits.

With Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure Plus and Treetop Adventure experiences 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.

  • Great experience and well organised. Staff were knowledgeable and safety-focused. It was my first time doing anything like this, and having a huge fear of heights meant that I was extremely anxious beforehand. The only downside was having to wait for another party who were late, as waiting around added to my anxiety. As there is emphasis within the email confirmation of the need to be on time, this seemed a little unfair!

    Kerry Derbyshire

  • We visited Go Ape Junior at Bedgebury and had a great time. In fact, it was one of the highlights of half-term for the children! The staff were helpful and friendly. My son got scared part way through one of the courses and one staff member was extremely calm and helpful to get him back onto a platform. We will definitely return and would recommend Go Ape to friends.

  • Fab day. Will definitely be doing it again

    Rebecca Borland

  • Great fun all around with the kids.

    Antonio Abreu

  • Staff were great and we had loads of fun. Only criticism was that we lost at least 10 minutes of our paid for time waiting for a scared child to get unstuck. And though I support helping him through it it's a bit unfair that the 10 or so other children behind him lost out. Perhaps it would be better to allocate a certain number of course loops rather than specifically an hour so everyone can go at their own pace and other children aren't adversely affected
