Cockfosters

You really can escape the busy London life without travelling too far at our North London Cockfosters location, in Trent Park. 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.

  • We had a great time. It was challenging. But our instructor Max was very good. He prepared us very well. He was very clear about do’s and don’ts. We were lucky that the weather was fantastic as well. All staff were friendly and smiley, at the same time very informative. Thank you .

  • I won tickets for my first go ape experience so my husband, daughter and I visited the Cockfosters site. My daughter and I were extremely nervous but once we had had our safety briefing and was taken to the first obstacle by the instructor we relaxed a little. We had so much fun and the instructors were nearby checking up on us now and again. I really felt like I conquered my fears here as I'm not the best with heights! My favourite parts had to be the zip wires, particularly the skateboard one which I managed to stay on most of the way down! This was a fab day out, I certainly felt it the next day! Really impressed with the whole experience. Thank you
