Hide out in the High Ropes

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.

  • Was fantastic fun. Instructors were very friendly and safety instructions beforehand was very thorough. Instructors were on hand if need be but just kept an eye on you from a distance. Every one involved all said they would all love to do it again and would highly recommend it. I had my 2 dogs with me and it was as easy for me to navigate the course and take photos and videos of my family. Well done everyone at Goape.

  • A superb day for both me (49) and my son (17). The new design of the Buxton Go Ape is amazing, loads of zip lines (some between tree tops) and the whole experience took around 2 hours. Staff were brilliant. Can't wait to go back soon, superb.
