Go Ape!

Take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip wires; and finish off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan, and you've got an amazing day out at Go Ape! Delamere Forest. It couldn't be easier to get to from Chester - just a 15-minute train and a 5 minute walk. So there's no excuses!
