Go Ape Buxton

Buxton Country Park Pooles Cavern, Green Lane, Buxton, SK17 9DH. England

Looking for things to do in Buxton? Well, you’ve arrived at the right place. Go Ape Buxton is built high in the hilltops of the UK’s oldest National Park, their Peak District location offers breath-taking views and big adventure. Featuring one of their biggest Tarzan swing drops, you’ll leap off the platform into stomach-turning free fall before being swung into their giant cargo net. Buxton’s one of their highest courses ever built. Climb, leap and zip through the tree tops to soak in amazing views of Buxton town and the sprawling countryside below.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
