Voted Best Tourism Experience at Lancashire and Blackpool Tourism Awards 2011 and nominated in the Visit Lancashire for Small Visitor Attraction in 2014. It's got to be one of Lancashire's best days out and that's not just us saying that (check out our feedback!). With breathtaking scenery, amazing tree top obstacles and awesome zip lines, Rivington is sure to be a day out in Lancashire you won't forget. You are guaranteed a warm welcome at Rivington Tree Top Adventure. It's home to one of the most exciting zip wires: You'll cross a bay in the reservoir and get a bird's eye view over the water. With its rugged hills, picturesque reservoirs and woodlands bustling with wildlife, Rivington is one of Lancashire's 'must visit' locations. A gem in its own right and on the doorstep of Manchester, one of the most vibrant cities in the UK.

I went with my 10 year old niece and it was amazing! Couldn't believe the thrill of the zip lines. The ride at the end of each of the obstacles was well worth it! Brilliant day out!

I’m pressuring you mean to the site and not on the actual course! Yes there is plenty of woods etc to walk dogs

You can take a camera or your phone if it fits in your pocket and it’s easy to take photos at certain points around the course like on the platforms but obviously if you drop it you can’t just climb down and retrieve it... More
