The UK's number one forest adventure in the heart of the Peak District. Located on the edge of this beautiful spa town, our high ropes experience at Buxton is one of Go Ape's highest. We're 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 our 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 our famous ziplines and take on one of the UK's biggest Tarzan Swings.
We're 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. Trust us. Our woodchip landing sites play dirty!
Grown-up fun in the great outdoors. Take the time to waste a moment.
