Tree Climbing at Compton Verney

This weekend sees the return of organised tree climbing at Compton Verney. Despite a set-back last month when a bee swarm alighted on our favoured London Plane tree, we’re confident for the coming sessions with a choice of two trees now available to the organisers The Great Big Tree Climbing Company.

Two highly skilled and friendly instructors can help all ages reach new heights in a fantastic tree at Compton Verney. They will teach you how to enter a tree’s canopy using ropes, knots and karabiners, whilst being securely attached in a harness at all times. Once at the top of the tree you will gain an experience which can’t be found on the ground and if you’re feeling brave try some branch walking before being lowered to the ground ! Each session contains a maximum of eight participants, creating a unique and intimate experience.

This Saturday, July 4th. Sessions available from 10:00am to 4:45pm – £18.50 per session + booking fee. Entry to Compton Verney charged separately – free for members and season pass holders.

There are still places remaining on the sessions, which can be booked directly with BTCC via the link below.

BIG TREE CLIMBING COMPANY – Saturday July 4th at Compton Verney

Tree Climbing Time!

Yes our last climbing session of the season is being run, (or climbed!)

NEXT FRIDAY – 22nd August.

Managed on site by The Great Big Tree Climbing Company, the day long activity is broken down into bite-sized hour-long climbing sessions that are perfect for merging in with other features on site – the Woodland Play Area, Willow Tunnel, Nature’s Art Box and of course the Moore Rodin exhibition. There’s seating nearby to picnic, watch the action or take some action photographs.

Other locations include Alexandra Palace, the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, and the National Trust’s Anglesey Abbey to name just a few, so we’re delighted the GBTCCo. are dropping by to lead one more day of climbing at our own Compton Verney.

Admittedly, you will need a head for heights, but you’ll be supervised and well cared for throughout.  Continue reading

Ropes, Knots and Karabiners!

Do your family enjoy the great outdoors; exploring parks and gardens perhaps? If like me, you like to test your children’s perception and enjoy seeing them discover new things, or maybe you yourself are seeking a new challenge or experience? Then maybe this new event in south Warwickshire could be worth a look…
