For those looking to escape their mundane life in the city, venture out to Branching Out Adventures in Halland, near Lewes. Their outdoor activity centre allows you to spend a day in the trees, whether you want to chase an adrenaline rush or just have fun with friends.
There are activities suitable for adults and children alike. Depending on how much you love heights, you can choose to venture on to the high or low ropes. The former rewards you with a treetop view of your surroundings, plus an 80m zip wire descent to get your heart racing, whilst the low ropes let you test your balance and confidence at a more comfortable distance from the ground. Alternatively you can strap yourself in to the giant swing and accelerate through the treetops, experiencing double gravity, or speed down the 110m zip wire in the heart of the forest. The new woodland play trail is ready for younger (and shorter) visitors to explore.
Prices for the activities vary, from £5 for a child’s session on the giant swing, zip wires or climbing wall to £16 for an adult to take on the high wires. Tickets can be bought through www.branchingoutadventures.co.uk and early booking is encouraged to avoid disappointment.
