Adventures for all the family at Go Ape – Temple Newsam in Leeds
There’s a stately feel to Go Ape Temple Newsam, despite being situated just four miles from the centre of Leeds. Based on estate grounds with a 500-year-old country mansion and beautiful woodlands.
One of the many brilliant things about this course is that no matter how challenging the obstacles are, the permanent belay is quietly reassuring. So, once you’re hooked on, that’s it for the duration. All you need to do is concentrate on having fun.

How far out of your comfort zone are you willing to step?
Temple Newsam is the triple whammy of aerial adventures. Muster your courage and summon your strength for the Challenge course! You’ll need it for the Tarzan Swing, tree-to-tree zips and the free-falling Plummet.
Head over to the Treetop Adventure + if you’re finding your tree climbing feet. This course offers variety and choice, so you get to decide how far out of your comfort zone you’re willing to step.
Little explorers can’t go wrong on the Adventure course – the perfect introduction to tree-to-tree crossings and brilliant zips.
Set within 1500 acres of parkland, the aerial adventures at Temple Newsam can be found in the heart of Menagerie Wood.
Make a day of it
When you’re done, slip the harness off and head over to the Manor House, a truly impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion described as one of the best stately homes in Britain.
The famous ‘Capability’ Brown designed the concept for the grassland, woodlands, views and vistas.
Sit back and enjoy a picnic in the lakeside garden or the Georgian walled garden. Alternatively, head over to the Tea Rooms for a bite to eat.
If you’re partial to a bit of shopping, there’s also a gift shop.
