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.

    Sheila Curtis

  • All the children were well, looked after. They also got a lot of extra time on the course. The Forest Shelter was a little expensive for what it was but overall a great experience.

  • Amazing morning - A huge Thank You to all your team 😉

    Joanne Clark

  • All staff were fantastic and very friendly and the trail was very good fun and not too busy even on a Saturday. Only downside was that we got stuck behind a family with a young child that took a long time to go around and meant that 30 mins of our hour was spent waiting for them to move along. The staff did let us go on again though just before our time was up so got an extra 20 mins out of it which was great. Would definitely recommend!
