Owner description: 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.

Great team - kind and helpful. Very safety conscious, we all had a great time testing ourselves in the tree tops!

This was a fantastic experience, staff very friendly and helpful. Course was incredible and very funny, especially for couples. Had a brilliant time, Worth the price. Plus its right next to the Cavern.

What an amazing way to spend 2-3 hours! Our experience started off with what feels like a never ending briefing/lesson (it's only when you are out there in the tree tops looking down that you really appreciate that lesson!) that was delivered by a lady called Jenny (who was superb). We then moved on to a practice mini round before being unleashed in to the course. All safety equipment is provided!

Up there in the trees, tackling some challenging courses that take you out over some quite high drops is really exhilarating, the best bit is that at the end of each round is a zip wire which is a great reward for the hard work of getting to it.

The Tarzan swings are great fun when you get to them and it really does feel like a good balance between just a touch scary and great fun.

Highly recommended to all ages (as long as you are able to climb, are flexible and tall enough if you are a child).

Driving to Buxton with my husband for 3 days break . Before arriving to Buxton we stopped at an Coach Inn called BULL 'I TH'THORN which was built over 1,000 years ago ! The pub food was good , general portion and price reasonably . Arriving at Buxton we stayed in The Old Hall hotel which was built over 500 years ago and queen Mary stayed there in the 16 Century when she visited the Spa town of Buxton several occasions .The hotel full of character but in need of some up date for some facilities . Hotel food very simple but staffs were polite . We went to Poole Carven which is worth visiting and the cave was over 2 million years as was told by the tour guide .Pavilion Garden in the centre of town is beautiful but I do prefer to walk in The Dale .
Nearby a small village town Castleton is beautiful and a good place to buy Blue John jewellery , this is the only place that produce this kind of stone . Blue John Carven is not far from the the town. We do enjoyed our days out in Peak District and the scenery is so breath taken . Go to explore the Peak District few days if you have time and you will enjoy the scenery .

I had never done anything like the go ape activity before but I completely enjoyed it.you start the day with instruction from the staff explaining exactly how to do things.they are very careful and there is safety signage everywhere.they warn you it is not for anyone with serious health problems.and I would add it's not for the feint of heart at times you are very high up in the trees.it was great fun and I would also say a great work out as you use a lot of upper body strength.i would highly recommend it as a fun day out you will definitely laugh.
