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.

Very challenging and scary especially for women of a certain age. However, managed to get round the whole course with no mishaps.

The whole gang of us were impressed with Liams' detail to our safety and enjoyment, in fact, the entire team in general were very welcoming and professional; a credit to GA. The location and diversity of the course makes it challenging, without being physically inconceivable,...More

I didn't mind that this was a bit pricey at just over 30 quid because you definitely get your money's worth. On arrival you sign paperwork and have a safety talk which shows you the ropes. Then you start the course as a group with...More
