Directions

Road Directions

Take the A48 to Blakeney and then follow the brown signs to Go Ape! Our postcode (GL15 4HD) won't always take you to the exact location so it's best to ignore it and head to Blakeney then follow the (small) Go Ape signs to head up to the cabin. You'll need to keep your eyes peeled but this is the best way of getting to Go Ape. Due to the rural nature of our locations, postcodes are not always accurate when using sat-nav directions. Please always cross reference with a map. Find out about the latest on the roads and get travel directions from TravelWest.info
