Covid-19 – Urgent Update

In light of the government’s advice, given on Friday 20th March 2020, directing leisure centres to close temporarily, Branching Out Adventures is closing with immediate effect. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Please rest assured that your bookings with us remain valid and will merely be postponed until the government allows us to re-open, once the virus outbreak situation is resolved. Family memberships will be extended by the amount of days that we will be closed.

For any updates, information and answers to any questions you may have, please do email

Please bear with us. We are a small business but we remain dedicated and defiant in the face of this troubling situation and hope to re-open our doors as soon as we possibly can.

Take care of yourselves and see you up in the trees soon!

All the best, The BOA Team.

Here’s Joe.

He’s waiting to welcome you with a squirt of hand sanitiser!! As with all outdoor businesses, we are keeping an eye on the Coronavirus situation and recommendations for outdoor social activities. We plan to remain open for as long as we can, to honour bookings and help give you all a dose of fresh air.

We will remain vigilant with cleaning and have soap and hand sanitizer on hand (😂😂) for you and our staff to use. So please wash your hands before and after climbing. We will do our best to try to ensure you have enough space and recommend you avoid close contact with others until all this blows over.

Please make sure each member of your family, group, couple have a pair of gloves to use on the ropes, to minimise risk.

It goes without saying, but please do not attend/bring anyone who has either a new continuous cough or high temperature.

All that said, we hope to be here to entertain you safely as long as we possibly can. Updates on our status will appear on this page as soon as we have any news.

Stay safe, people…. all the best,

The BOA Team.

We’ve had quite the wet weather, haven’t we?! Oh well….we get on with it. Come on down and get up in the trees and away from the wet ground for a bit. Do bring wellies for your way in and for any walking around that you might like to do. Looking forward to seeing lots of people here over the weekend

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!!
