And now for something completely different…
Popular forest adventure centre Go Ape is offering an alternative Valentine’s Day treat, for those more likely to choose thrill-seeking than romance.
With 28 giant outdoor sites nationwide, you can spend Valentine’s Day swinging through the forest on zip wires, crossing wooden walkways and bridges, climbing tree-top ladders and flying through the air on Tarzan Swings.
Tempted? Gift vouchers are also now available for an alternative Valentine’s Day present, which can be redeemed at Go Ape Tree Top Adventure, but also at Go Ape! Forest Segways.
For more information on Go Ape gift vouchers, visit the site.
So, there you go. There might not be much time left, but if you’ve conveniently/ accidentally/ deliberately forgotten that Valentine’s Day is dawning in just over 24 hours there’s still chance to redeem yourself. Get your skates on and get booking!
