Cockfosters

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.

A hub of adventure in cockfosters

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.

    Jake Sittampalam

  • 100% recommend. Very fun and safe, a bit scary at times, but loved the experience all the way through. It takes a good 2 hours and goes up in difficulty, very physical. 10yo son loved it, and so did the adults in the group.

    Guada

  • Loved it! Great for adults and kids alike. A brilliant introduction and the team were wonderfully friendly, approachable and with an appropriate attention to safety. I'd come here every week if I could!

    Cara

  • Staff where really good and very encouraging. Once I knew I wasn't go to fall out the harness and die I enjoyed the day. Tarzan jump was very scary but the adrenaline made it more exciting and made me continue. Defo recommend as a fun day out. TAKE GLOVES and don't wear converse

  • Great afternoon out with my 10 year old daughter. A bit nerve racking to begin with with the clipping and uncliping but soon got used to it. Will be doing it again soon.

    Mr Steven Taylor
