Book Tickets Online

About

Go-Ape is now open. Please book tickets online in advance. 

There’s no greater rush than the great outdoors, so whether your tribe is a stag do, birthday party, corporate event or simply a day out with the kids, we make our courses as fun and as accessible as possible.

Leeds Castle Go Ape has two, 250m Long Zip Wire with Great Views of the North Downs. If you’re looking for things to do near Maidstone, you won’t leave our outdoor adventure at Leeds Castle disappointed. Enjoy one of the best days out in Kent with breathtaking views of the beautiful area surrounding Leeds Castle (near Maidstone), and obstacles that will get the hairs on the back of neck bristling.

With zip wires and high ropes 12 metres above the forest floor and 250 metres in length, experience an adventure experience never to be forgotten. And Leeds Castle is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Junior Tarzans. Up to an hour of exploring the tree tops for all to enjoy, you just need to be over one metre tall.

Just a couple of minutes from the motorway, Leeds Castle, “the loveliest castle in the world“, is enough of a reason for a day out. With peacocks roaming and sheep wandering, you really will feel like you’ve got away from it all.

Looking for an office day out with a difference? Encourage teamwork, boost morale and forge new friendships. Go Ape has a range of tree-mendous extras to add to your day including forest BBQs, team-building challenges and African Drumming. Unleash your inner Tarzan and live life adventurously!
