The UK's Longest and Highest Treetop Walkway

Treetop Walkway closing on 2nd September for winter development.

Have a fun-filled adventure in the treetops of Groombridge Place as you take the incredible 350m long journey through the tree canopy, 20m above the forest floor. The exhilarating new adventure walkway is like no other in South East England and the magical experience will simply take your breath away as you climb higher and higher along the ropes into the tree canopy of the huge Oak, Pine, Beech and Chestnut trees which make up this ancient forest. The exciting treetop climb will take at least 30 minutes to complete and the 360 degree views are spectacular. Adults are required to purchase a ticket to take younger children on the Treetops Walkway. Responsible children can take to the ropes on their own. Sensible footwear must be worn to do the Treetops Walkway (e.g. no heels, sandals or flip-flops).
