You may have heard of Go Ape’s high-wire treetop adventures in the forests of the UK, but now they’ve opened their first city venue. In a corner of Battersea Park, this is possibly the coolest day out in London. Kids (and adults, if you fancy), are harnessed with a safety rope and make their way on obstacle courses and ziplines between huge trees. Many are twice as long and high as usual, making them extra wobbly and challenging.
Best for ages: Tree Top Adventure, min. 10 years old, min. height 1.4m; Tree Top Junior, aimed at six-12 years, but under-six can take part if over 1m and accompanied by an adult
Kids' highlight: Ziplining with the London skyline as a backdrop
Price: Tree Top Adventure £25 (10-15 years), 16+ £33; Tree Top Junior, £18
