There are two Go Ape courses in Kent - outside Leeds Castle near Maidstone and at Bedgebury Pinetum near Goudhurst.

The next relaxation in restrictions will allow for the treetop activity courses to reopen to visitors at the same time that the 'rule of six' outside is also anticipated to be permitted providing coronavirus cases continue to fall in the coming weeks.

Last summer, as lockdown relaxed, the outdoor activity courses proved popular with families looking for socially-distanced activities in the fresh air.

Go Ape runs a variety of high ropes courses in the trees tailored to both small children, teenagers and adults and can provide an ideal day out for active families to be able to enjoy altogether.

In order to prevent any spread of coronavirus and keep both staff and visitors safe, visits to Go Ape are timed throughout the day and numbers permitted into each slot heavily restricted to keep in line with government restrictions and allow for social distancing.

Staff, who fit visitors with harnesses on arrival, are also equipped with masks and visors to wear when social distancing isn't possible.

All visitors must pre-book their visit ahead of arrival and with the Easter break on the horizon, families keen on taking their children during the school holidays are being encouraged to book well in advance.

Go Ape is not the only attraction hoping to reopen at the end of March in the next step out of lockdown.
Watersports centres in Maidstone, Canterbury and Halling are also gearing up to welcome back visitors with hire slots for everything from canoes to kayaks now available to book.
