Just the journey in to Buxton Go Ape, through the beautiful Peak District National Park, will set the scene of what awaits you. Conveniently located within walking distance from the historic spa town of Buxton, and just under an hour’s drive from Sheffield city centre, you can spend the whole day in England’s largest and oldest national park. Explore the area on one of the many walks including Mam Tor and The Great Ridge Walk which offer one of the best views in the Peak District. 

For beautiful views across the town of Buxton climb to the top of Grin Low to find Solomon’s Temple, a Victorian folly built on a Bronze Age barrow. Discover Poole’s Cavern, the first ‘Wonder of the Peak’ and one of the finest limestone show caves in England.

Once you’ve walked, climbed and hiked your way around the area, why not head back to Buxton, a thermal spa town famous for its stunning ornamental gardens, Georgian and Victorian architecture.

  • Had a fabulous time yesterday, I dislike heights but I wanted to do something fun with my husband and children aged 12 and 14. It was one of the best activities I have ever done. I was buzzing all day. Probably good idea to take a spare set of clothes for after though.... especially for those who end up on their back after the zip wire... adds to the extra fun!
