We are sad to say that this ‘ere Storm Dennis is forcing us to close the doors to BOA this weekend. We’re not bothered by the rain and the muddy ground, but the wind can make things a bit hazardous, if it’s too strong. We are mightily sorry but we will be opening for the first day of the new season on Monday 17th February, so come on down, we are open all week from 11am to 4pm and every weekend and school holiday thereafter!!

Don’t forget the Holiday Club day on Weds 19th Feb….just a few spaces left!

See y’ll soon!!

We are going to let things dry out a bit in the morning before we open, so please be assured that we will be open this Saturday, but at the slightly later time of 12pm. See you then!

We are UP AND RUNNING!! Even though Bentley has sadly closed, Branching Out remains unaffected and we are open for all of the Easter Hols, every school holiday and every weekend day for the whole year!

See you all soon!

Branching Out Adventures is still open for business and remains unaffected by the unfortunate closure of Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. This lovely lot will be here to welcome you during our usual seasonal opening hours for some adrenaline fuelled action up in the trees.

Remember, we operate in all weathers….the only exceptions being very high winds and lightning above our heads! Bring the right gear and you’ll have a whale of a time!! Can’t wait to see you all soon!!


The UK’s largest woodland conservation charity and the county’s wildlife conservation charity will be the focus of this term’s free half-term education initiative at Branching Out Adventures.

On Wednesday 24th October, the team from The Woodland Trust will set up ‘camp’ at Branching Out Adventures, Halland near Lewes, as part of its mission to protect the country’s woods, trees and restore ancient woodland for the benefit of wildlife and people. On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th, October, Sussex Wildlife Trust will take over to spread the important message that 60 per cent of our wildlife are in decline and 1 in 10 are heading for UK extinction.

Kate Hall of the Woodland Trust said: “It’s going to be a whole lot of fun. We’ve got lots of educational and fun activities to share with families and children, as well as spot prizes and some ‘Awesome Autumn Adventures’. Do you know why leaves turn red and gold in the autumn? Why not come along and find out!”

Mark Oakden of Branching Out Adventures, said: “Our mission is to encourage families to get out into nature. We want everyone to appreciate the majestic nature and importance of trees and wildlife. We’re delighted that both The Woodland Trust and Sussex Wildlife Trust will be with us during the autumn half term. Come along and meet these amazing charities, hear about the work they are doing and learn lots about local nature and wildlife.”

The Woodland Trust is the country’s largest woodland conservation charity with more than 1,000 sites. Sussex Wildlife Trust focuses on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast. It manages over 30 nature reserves in Sussex.

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 24th July to 30th August, 9am to 4pm.
Drop the kids off with us for an amazing day full of activities, pick them up and let them tell you all about it!

Come on dowwwwwwn!!

If you or your school would like to come as part of your extra-curricular activities like Lewes Old Grammar, then contact us direct.

Ever since we started the bookings over a year ago, they have been very successful and the children have thoroughly enjoyed the variety of activities, continuingly developing their self-confidence and ability to work as a closely knit effective unit. Every term the spaces have been gobbled up, with hugely discounted rates.

While all our GB champs get their beauty sleep for their final weekend in Rio, Branching Out Adventures will be holding their own Olympic Challenge! From 9am – 11am on Saturday and Sunday the 20th and 21st August we will be holding 3 sporting events for those with the determination and strength to succeed. Can you handle timed trials of the Climbing Wall, Low or High Ropes??? If so give us a call or email to book your slot for any activity on either Saturday or Sunday. Medals will be awarded both days for the quickest time on each event with the outright winners for the weekend being awarded a family ticket… now there’s a challenge you can’t resist!

The cost of entering the competition is half the normal price of the activity, so for example the climbing wall challenge will be £3 with a couple of trial climbs thrown in.The Low and High Ropes will be £7 and £8 respectively.. but no trial runs here – you’re straight in to competition!

Now, if like us you like to get a bit of a head start then come and visit us during the week for a practice, if you have entered the competition you will get a 10% discount for your practice visit. And do come early – the ropes are quieter then, and Rio is still asleep so you don’t miss any of the action!

Looking forward to seeing you all… time to limber up…!!!

Please book your activities online, and remember to check the child to adult ratios on the ropes courses for the under 12’s. All other information can be found in FAQ’s, alternatively ring or email using contact details found on the website.

Follow us on Facebook for all the great reviews and up to date footage.

Just a reminder that dogs now can only enter Branching Out via the bridleways , one of which is near  the entrance to the Bentley estate, and not through the field from our car park. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
