Overview

Nestling in the heart of the beautiful Peak District, England's largest National Park, Go Ape Buxton is one of our highest courses. The site is walking distance from the historic spa town itself making it perfect if you are looking to spend the whole day out, you'll also find the two-million-year-old natural limestone cave Poole's Cavern, in Buxton Country Park.

Although a lot of money, go ape is definitely worth it. We booked in advance and were lucky with the weather. The setting is lovely and the staff knowledgeable. Great fun for all ages.
