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 the Treetop 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 Plus if you’re above 1.2m and over 6 years old. 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 Treetop Adventure course – the perfect introduction to tree-to-tree crossings and brilliant zips.


Go Ape Temple Newsam Activities





An aerial adventure trio of Outdoor Activities Near Leeds

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.

    To all the brilliant team at Go Ape Temple Newsam- thank you very much for a wonderful day! You were all so helpful and accommodating with the late arrival of one member of the party. The new (ish) Forest Shelter is a super addition to your site. Thank you!

  • Go Ape high ropes course

    Went to Temple Newsam 'go ape' on 09/04/2023, initially booked for the treetop challenge, when my son was over-whelmed for the initial experience, staff assisted in him combating his fears and later allowed him to switch to a more age appropriate course. Again, during the experience, my son froze on two more occasions for the helpful staff to again come to his aid. All the staff need a huge 'pat' on the back for their professionalism and care towards my son. I'm sorry I cannot recall each member of staff names that dealt with my son specifically, however, from afar, I did see others assisting other youngsters and adults alike, causing them to face their own separate challenge. Thank you very much for the experience, I will certainly recommend the activity to others as well as book again.


  • Go Ape high ropes course

    Had a fantastic morning at Go Ape, Temple Newsam, with my 10 year old. This was our first visit to Go Ape and we opted for the Treetop Adventure + course. The course had just the right level of challenge for us and it was great that we were able to complete the levels at our own pace. All the staff we encountered during our visit were friendly and extremely helpful. A big shout out to both Oscar and Saul who came to our rescue when we got into a couple of sticky spots - both were quick to react and gave tips to ensure that we had the confidence to complete the rest of the course. Thanks guys!
