Climb a really big tree - across London

Remember when you were young and used to climb trees for fun? There’s no reason you can’t do that now, as Mark Hawes and Nick Cranston, the brains behind the Big Tree Climb, enthuse. Qualified tree surgeons who wanted to share their love of trees with others, the duo hold group events across the country, and can be booked for private events, too, during which you climb a tree (roped in of course) then zipwire down. Fantastic. 

Times and dates vary
