Cockfosters

Winter Opening Treetop Challenge closed from 9th December- 2nd February 2020. Closest open location for Treetop Challenge is Go Ape Alexandra Palace

You really can escape the busy London life without travelling too far at our North London Cockfosters location. This is high rise fun, without the high rise London backdrop - while being just five minutes walk from the tube! This course is great for guiding you in as it starts low and builds up. Once the confidence is soaring you’re all set for the highest course in the South East which is also home to the longest and fastest zip wire in London and two big Tarzan Swings.

Cockfosters Go Ape lies in Trent Country Park, close to Enfield, mins from the tube and close to the M25. Immerse yourself in 413-acres of extensive woodland, rolling meadows, enchanting brooks and imposing historical sites.

Once you’ve victoriously tackled the highest Go Ape course in the South East, you can see what the beautiful park has to offer.

Bring the bikes and head out on the cycle routes or if you prefer to explore on foot there are a couple of walking routes which incorporate a number of the park’s historical memorials including Sassoon’s Obelisk, the Duke’s Pyramid and Camlet Moat.

Depending on the season the Nature Trail will offer you something different each time and you can seek out the Water Garden which has recently been restored to its former glory. If you prefer a lakeside view why not bring your rod (and an Environment Agency Rod Licence) as fishing is available on the lakes during the open season.

It’s not all grown up fun – kids get a look in too at Trent Country Park. There are two brilliant wooden play areas – one which caters to toddlers and one specially for the juniors.

Worked up a thirst and an appetite? Head over to the Wildlife Rescue Centre and Café for some refreshments.

  • This experience at the Cockfosters location of Go Ape was one of the best things I've done in my life. They do a really great job of training you to comfortably use the harness & locking carabiners so you can stay safe throughout, as the courses get increasingly higher in the trees. Such an adrenaline rush. The varying types of platforms to walk on keeps things very interesting, with the huge rush of the zipline at the end down to the bottom. I would recommend this to anyone who isn't too afraid of heights.
