The UK’s number one forest adventure in the heart of the Peak District. Located on the edge of this beautiful spa town, their high ropes experience at Buxton is one of Go Ape’s highest. Go Ape is nestled in the heart of Derbyshire – adjacent to Poole’s Cavern – which is also well worth a visit.

Treetop Challenge is an exhilarating self-guided 2-3 journey through the forest canopy. It includes a detailed safety brief from one of their qualified instructors before you set off into the tree tops. You’ll get to clamber up rope ladders, traverse tricky crossings, swing into giant cargo nets and ride super-fast zip wires.

Built on the hilltops, Go Ape Buxton offers breath-taking views. It also features multiple tree-to-tree ziplines. An enjoyable day out for friends and older families alike, enjoy 2-3 hours of non-stop action-packed fun. Scramble up rope ladders, tackle tree top obstacles, experience their famous ziplines and take on one of the UK’s biggest Tarzan Swings.

This is an all-weather activity so forget your glad rags. Old, comfy clothing is your best bet. Dress for the elements. And we wouldn’t recommend wearing white. Their woodchip landing sites play dirty!

Grown-up fun in the great outdoors. Take the time to waste a moment.

Go Ape Buxton is in walking distance of the town and you’ll also find the two-million-year-old natural limestone cave Poole’s Cavern located just a stride away across the car park. As one of Derbyshire’s best loved show-caves, the unique limestone underground chambers feature spectacular stalactites and stalagmites as well as a gift shop and Café in the Cavern for snacks, breakfast and light lunches. Grin Low Woods and Buxton Country Park is located right behind Go Ape Buxton so if you want to continue exploring the area, take a walk to the summit at 1,434ft above sea level where you’ll find one of Buxton’s most famous landmarks Solomon’s Temple and you’ll be rewarded with stunning 360° views of the surrounding Peak District.
