Tree climbers stood next to a tree in Appley, Ryde, Isle of Wight

Goodleaf Tree Climbing

Enjoy an offbeat adventure on the Isle of Wight at Ryde’s award-winning Goodleaf Tree Climbing.

Set in a stunning location, you can experience a two hour recreational tree climb up a magnificent oak tree within Appley Park, just moments from the golden sands of Appley Beach. Goodleaf’s friendly and experienced staff will be on hand to show you the ropes and before you know it you’ll be getting into climbing gear, ascending into the canopy and enjoying the high life.

There’s no pressure to reach the top, of course, but those that do will see a spectacular squirrel’s eye view across the Solent to Portsmouth, from 15 metres up. There are plenty of places to rest on the way up, so you can swing around or relax as you go.

Back on solid ground, top yourself up with tea, coffee or squash and try the fabled ‘tree climber’s flapjack’.

The two hour session includes everything you need for a fun and enjoyable experience for ages eight and over. What’s more, if you travel to Goodleaf on public transport, foot or bicycle, you’ll get a 5% discount on your climb.
