The activities we offer are suitable for all ages from 6 years upwards and suitable for schools, businesses or a social outing, such as a birthday or group party.  Our aim is to foster team building and leadership skills.

  • Go Ape, Tree Top Adventure Wyre Forest, near Kidderminster is home to some of the most ecologically significant woodlands in England. Go Ape offers two to three hours of fun and adventure. It’s a great way to get outdoors and try some a little bit unique. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery. Then we add a smattering of tree top high wire, tricky crossings and unforgettable zip wires.


  • Shrewsbury Adventure Rope Course & Activity Centre.  A unique outdoor pursuits facility that opened in the grounds of Albrighton Hall Hotel & Spa. From climbing walls to archery to Skydives and bungy jumps.


  • Midland Gliding Club.  One of the best ways to see if you might like gliding is to have a trial lesson. This involves one or two launches by winch or up to 20 minutes flying time, depending on conditions during which you will be introduced to the characteristics of the aeroplane and the principal controls. If possible you will be encouraged to take control of the plane and to feel what is like to fly it yourself. Of course you will be in a two seat trainer with an experienced instructor who will do the launch and the landing and will demonstrate the principal maneuvers.
