Groombridge Place Treetops Walkway Experience

The UK’s Longest and Highest Treetop Walkway opens at Groombridge Place in Kent.

Discover the amazing new handcrafted Treetops Walkway, which is an incredible 350m long and stands at over 20m above the forest floor.

The Longest and highest Tree-top Walkway in the UK

Thrill seekers can experience something truly magical 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. There are sturdy wooden platforms at the beginning and end of the Treetops Walkway and a Big Chunky 4-sided Rope Ladder provides an additional entry and exit point along the way.

  • 350m long.

  • 20m high.

  • 8m Big Chunky 4-sided Rope Ladder.

"Tall, wobbly and a bit scary - no, not me, but an intriguing new attraction on the border of Kent and Sussex.
In the expansive grounds of Groombridge Place, a medieval manor house outside Tunbridge Wells, you can get a squirrel’s eye view of south-east England as you clamber along the UK’s longest and highest treetop walkway.
“There’s an oak here, a pine, a huge chestnut beyond with a fabulous view,” gestures Paul Cameron, who designed the walkway for Groombridge Place’s owner, Justin Bodle".
