Days Out

Go Ape Bedgebury launches Tree Top Junior course for young Tarzans to Live Life Adventurously

Go Ape, the UK’s leading forest adventure company, has recently opened its brand new Tree Top Junior course at Go Ape Bedgebury, near Tunbridge Wells. Young Tarzans, from the age of six (or anyone over one metre tall) can now join in the fun and explore the canopy too, making it a fun day out for all the family.


Opened to the public in 2007, Go Ape Bedgebury has since welcomed 142,000 visitors to swing through the trees of the original Tree Top Adventure course. Tree Top Junior is expected to become as much of a huge hit with the locals, as well as tourists to the area.

Adventurers can spend a fun filled hour exploring the canopy with family and friends. With the action happening five metres above the forest floor, young Tarzans can make their way through 20 looping obstacles including the Spiders Web, Log Balance, Jungle Crossing and, of course, finishing with an awesome zip wire. It also makes a perfect day out for celebrating a birthday party too. Upon completion of the course, all participants are awarded their very own personalised certificate to keep.

For those visiting the Go Ape Tree Top Junior course, the safety systems are designed so that participants stay attached the whole time. Children aged younger than six (who are over one meter tall) are welcome to participate but must be accompanied by an adult.

Tim Rowan, course manager at Go Ape Bedgebury comments, “We are really excited to announce the launch of our new Tree Top Junior course, as the experience is now available to those who have previously been too young to adventure in the trees. At Go Ape our ethos is all about creating adventures and encouraging the whole family to live life adventurously. The new course offers excitement for those of all ages, not just little monkeys.”

Set in the beautiful surroundings of Bedgbury Forest and easily accessible from the A21, Go Ape Bedgebury is the ultimate family day out, whatever the weather.

The perfect Christmas gift for kids!

Rather than giving just another toy this year, give the kids on your list something they’ll remember forever: a tree top adventure at GoApe. Help them discover their inner ape with a gift voucher, which can be used at any of GoApe’s 29 locations, including the Tree Top Junior courses at Bedgebury and Leeds Castle, Kent.
