  • The most unique children’s parties ever…

    It’s always tricky to think of something different and exciting for children’s parties, most activities have already been done by other mums and dads. So why not try Recreational Tree Climbing? It’s a fun and safe activity, which can be enjoyed by any child aged six or over. Older family members or activity leaders are always welcome to join in, but once dad starts we might have to remind him that it’s not his party! If your tree climbing days are over feel free to bring a picnic and watch whilst the kids climb.

    Tree climbing – fun and safe!

    All of our kid’s birthday parties are supervised by our highly trained instructors. Each child will have an instructor watching over them, who be on hand to offer reassurance, should they feel nervous. For the more confident climbers our instructors can advise them on more challenging routes and techniques. Everyone will be fitted with a harness and helmet at all times whilst on our activities.

    We welcome all types of groups whether you’re looking to arrange a day for a birthday party, cub or brownie group, youth group or school outing.

    What can your kids expect to get out of it?

    • Fun
    • Friendship
    • Confidence
    • A real sense of achievement once they reach the top
    • An understanding of trees and the environment
    • Great learning experience
    • Something unique to experience
    • Trust – in both the kit and our staff


  • There are two different ways to book parties through us.

    Option one: Book your party at one of our pre-bookable event days

    All of our events are  listed on our events calendar, please see availability on the date you’re looking to have the party. If you are able to attend one of our pre-organised events at a National Trust site or other location, the cost is typically between £15.50 and £20.00 per person. You can book out all of the spaces in an hour session to make your party completely private to your group. Please see our Latest Events page to book online. At some sites you may also need to pay your entrance fee in addition to this.

    Option two: Have a tailored party using your own tree

    If you wish to organise an extra special party in the privacy of your grounds then we can organise a tailored party for you. All you need is to have access to a large, healthy tree and to tell us:
    • The number of participants.
    • The date of the party.
    • Your location in the country.
    • The age of the participants.
    • And take some photos of your tree!

    Please email this information to: [email protected] or if you would like to discuss the details please call us on 0800 0556760. One of our event managers will then message you back to discuss your party and provide a quote dependent on your needs.

    We look forward to hearing from you
