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.

Thanks for getting in touch and for thinking of us. The cost for our original Tree Top Adventure is £33 per adult aged 16+ and £25 per child aged 10-15 years. Hopefully see you for an adventure soon!
