Buxton

You’ll find one of our more challenging sites here in the heart of the Peak District. This leafy course is beautiful in all seasons – a lush green tunnel high up in the tree tops.

This is one of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK which features one of our biggest Tarzan Swings.  With this claim to fame we’ve added a whole host of zip wires meaning there’s an exhilarating extended course with its own tree-to-tree section to fly through.

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.

    Garry Randerson

  • Had a fantastic time - organised this as a surprise for my partner’s birthday and his friends - The team could not have been more helpful, expanding the normal maximum size of group from 15 to 20 to accommodate us, and they were also brilliant with the fact that we were delayed in arriving at the location due to unexpected roadworks. An absolutely fantastic time was had by everyone, and we will definitely go back!!

  • I went with my 12 year old daughter and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well supported by friendly staff. We look forward to going again.

    Alwyn Mulryne

    Michael Stewart

  • My friends and I had such a fun time, despite the unforgiving rain. The instructors were very welcoming and made sure we were fully prepared before taking on the course... they were also very present throughout the whole course. I would totally recommend doing this course with the new layout and more zip wires it made our trip unforgettable. Well done Buxton Go Ape 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
