ADVENTURERS STEP THIS WAY

You’ll find Go Ape Southampton in Itchen Valley Country Park. This 440 acres of beautiful water meadows, woodland and meadows are situated beside the River Itchen and has been recognised by the award of a Green Flag for the past four years.

As Southampton’s hub for outdoor activities there’s a lot to keep the family entertained and busy. With two play areas to choose from, linked by the Play Trail which is made up of a series of animal sculptures for children to play on the whole family are sure to have a great time.

You’ll also find a number of trails to guide you through the beautiful country park including the Keepers Trail, Nature Detective Trail and Tree Trail. For the more adventurous there are two permanent orienteering courses which are designed so you don’t need a compass.

There are regular activities provided throughout the year for children so make sure you check the park’s website to see what’s on when you visit. With an onsite café serving hot and cold food and drinks and a picnic site, there’s plenty of opportunity for those all-important refuel moments.

  • We took my son and a group of friends for his birthday. All the kids had a great time and loved the course. The staff were friendly and really good with the kids. We had a couple who were nervous at various stages and the staff dealt with them really well, helping them to get past their fears. The only things stopping 5 stars was the number of people on the course. At times it felt a little busy and overcrowded on parts of the course.
