Temple Newsam

Welcome to our first high ropes experience in West Yorkshire and a triple whammy of aerial adventures. Muster your courage and summon your strength for this Challenge course! You’ll need it for the Tarzan Swing, tree-to-tree zips and the free-falling Plummet. Head over to the Treetop Adventure+ if you’re finding your tree climbing feet. This course offers variety and choice, so you get to decide how far out of your comfort zone you’re willing to step. And little explorers can’t go wrong on the Adventure course – the perfect introduction to tree-to-tree crossings and brilliant zips.

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.

  • 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.
