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.

Know Before You Go

  • Wear sensible clothes for adventure.
  • Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip off shoes, open toes or heels.
  • Gloves are a good idea. Either bring a pair or you can buy them at the cabin on the day.

make a day of it

  • Take a wander into the woods to discover the folly and explore the bridle paths.
  • Pay "Home Farm" a visit and meet the hundreds of rare-breed farm animals which live there.
  • Get some history and culture by having a look around Temple Newsam House.
  • Having tried Go Ape at Sheerwood Pines we decided to take our grand child to Temple Newsam. The staff were excellent and took time to convers with us and treated us and make us feel valued customers. I liked the way the various routes were set up to slowly increase the challenges and allow the people on it increase their confidence. We were fortunate that it it was not particularly busy and were allowed to repeat the routes many time. The only negative was that the nearest toilets were about a quarter of a mile away up a hill. Some people hadn’t bothered to make the trip as there was a st3nch of urine behind a shed. Toilets or Pietacabins need to be installed nearer. I would say this Go Ape was better than Sherwood Pines for young children


  • Great experience and very friendly and helpful staff at Temple Newsam, Leeds. Shame we can't go more often with my 6 year old, as it is quite expensive for an hour.


  • Took two grandchildren to Go Ape in Leeds. They had a great time. Instructors were friendly and helpful. Couldn't have been a better day out. Thank you.

  • Celebrated my daughters’ 11th Birthday with 7 of her friends. They all had a great time , wanted to go back for more. The only down side is a guy who was too aftraid to go to the zip line which delayed them a bit. There is no toilet near the place (Temple Newsam , Leeds) . The toilet is quite far and difficult to find.

  • Perfect for 5 thrill seeking 13 year old boys.

    Angela Ratcliffe

  • As professional as you would expect this to be (and needs to be), the time my son and I spent on the L3 course was great fun and the staff were superb. They were reassuring and helpful whilst we deliberated over some of the more daunting challenges. I'd recommend the GoApe Temple Newsam to anyone!
