Outdoor Date ideas London

Alexandra Palace

Located in the heart of North London, our Ally Pally site is not your usual forest backdrop. Get ready to climb, leap and zip through the Ally Pally skyline on this exhilarating high ropes course all while enjoying panoramic views of London as you embark on a not-so-typical Go Ape venture- the perfect date scenery. 

Next to the iconic Alexandra Palace, it’s the ideal date in London location to be accessed by public transport and only a short walk from the high street stores. So you can even add this as an extra adventure to your city date. 

Go Ape Alexandra Palace hosts Treetop Challenge, grown-up fun in the beautiful outdoors for thril-seekers who love canopy high tree-to-trees crossings, free-fall Tarzan Swings and riding super-fast, very long zips. Or if you’re looking for a shorter Ally Pally adventure, Treetop Challenge Xpress is Go Ape’s Treetop Challenge course but shorter. So you can enjoy all the thrills, in half the time.

Battersea Park, South London

Take on new heights at Go Ape Battersea Park’s Treetop Challenge crossings which are twice the height of most Go Ape locations. Offering the perfect date in London as you soak up the surrounding views of Battersea and the park. We recommend that you take on Treetop Challenge or Treetop Challenge Xpress. Find stacks upon stacks of high ropes and zip wire fun at our most central forest experience in London.

Your date is bound to be impressed with this breathtaking landscape making you feel a million miles away from the city. 

At this Go Ape gem, you can take on Treetop Challenge or Go Ape’s most extreme course, Challenge Plus.
