We go here once or twice a year. The go ape is situated in the outer grounds of Leeds castle (sadly no view due to woodland). It is great fun for the kids to spend an hour or so rambling through the trees and then...More

I was given a gift voucher for 2 people to “go ape”. As I didn’t have to pay, I couldn’t comment on whether it was good value for money. However, seeing the prices in the day I would’ve happily paid! On arrival we were given...More

Absolutely brilliant. The staff were great with the safety chat and made sure that everyone was harnessed in correctly. Kids really loved it (as did my husband), and definitely worth the money. They do cater for younger children and older which is great. Highly recommend.

We went on the junior go ape which was for one hour. You would need to check if you have older children and go on the bigger course
