An aerial adventure trio

There’s a stately feel to Go Ape Temple Newsam, despite being situated just four miles from the centre of Leeds. 

Based in estate grounds with a 500-year-old country mansion and beautiful woodlands, you’ll feel like Lord and Lady.

One of the many brilliant things about this course is that no matter how challenging the obstacles are, the permanent belay is quietly reassuring. So, once you’re hooked on, that’s it for the duration. All you need to do is concentrate on is having fun.

When you’re done, slip the harness off and head over to the Manor House, a truly impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion described as one of the best stately homes in Britain.

The famous ‘Capability’ Brown designed the concept for the grassland, woodlands, views and vistas.

Sit back and enjoy a picnic in the lakeside garden or the Georgian walled garden. Alternatively, head over to the Tea Rooms for a bite to eat. If you’re partial to a bit of shopping, there’s also a gift shop.

Temple Newsam is also home to an award-winning rare breed conservation farm which is one of the best-loved family attractions in Leeds.

    Sinead Cooper

  • Brilliant day out! Went to Go Ape at Temple Newsam with my five year old daughter and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The course is more challenging than I expected for the younger age group which was a nice surprise. All the staff were very knowledgeable and really helpful, plus friendly and welcoming particularly to the little ones. It's not a cheap day out but it is good value and we'll definitely be going again (and tackling the level 2 course next time!)

  • Good afternoon thanks

    Mrs Sarah Dolphin

  • I booked go ape as a 40th birthday present for my husband. We had never done anything like this before. It was such an amazing and fun experience. We had some right laughs while taking on the level 3 course. The staff were all really friendly, approachable and informative and most importantly on hand if need be. We would both definitely do this again.

    Sarah Rodgers

  • Very organised still a little pricey but kids loved it.

    Mr Robinson

  • Pretty good, doesn't have long zip wire thrills of Dalby forest but the plummet goes some way towards making up for that.
