- High Ropes Courses
Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Outdoor
Whoop your way around the award-winning Go Ape Buxton. At 1,200 feet high, it’s one of the tallest Go Ape course in England and well worth a few pairs of knocking knees!
After a quick safety briefing, you’ll have three hours to pluck up your courage and explore 6 different sections across the treetops, all filled with rope bridges, Tarzan swings and epic zip wires. The longest of these wires is an enormous 159m long so you may need a minute or two to psyche up before taking the plunge! Just remember that once you've dropped back down to earth, the thrill will have you feeling just as high as you did in the canopy.
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park (the largest in England), the course is walking distance from the historic spa town of Buxton. Enjoy a classic cream tea before trotting down the road to Poole's Cavern: a near two-million-year-old natural limestone cave. It’s a hidden Derbyshire gem and full of historic intrigue.
