Big Tree Climbing

Explore Wimpole Estate from the tree tops with The Big Tree Climbing Company.

  • Booking essential

Using ropes and harnesses, ascend into the canopy of one of Wimpole's largest trees, and enjoy an exhilarating adventure at new heights.

During your climb, you will learn how to safely reach the top of giant trees and take in the views of the parkland. You can hang out in the canopy or venture further out onto the branches if you're feeling brave, before returning safely to the ground.

This activity is suitable for ages 6 to 100, and each session is run for up to 8 people, creating a unique and intimate experience. We encourage the whole family to participate, or feel free to watch and photograph that special moment of your child climbing high into the canopy of a tree for the first time.

Please arrive at the Visitor Welcome Centre 20 minutes before your booked session, where you will be given directions to the tree climbing area. There is a 10 minute walk to the climbing area.

What to bring and wear

You'll be scaling a tree in a harness, so please dress appropriately for the activity. Trousers and sturdy shoes, as well as warm clothes if the weather is chilly are required.


Our climbing technique does require you to have a reasonable level of strength in your lower and upper body. The majority of work is done with your legs but participants are required to be active and healthy. We are able to help children who struggle but adults who are unable to carry out the technique can not be pulled up by our instructors.
