We had a lovely afternoon out here despite the drizzle! We were only here for 2.5 hours as they closed early for an event which was disappointing as you could spend most of the day here. Absolutely beautiful, dog friendly, lovely cafe/restaurant on site for...More

Westonbirt is very dog friendly with about two thirds of it accessible to dogs and off lead for the most part. Dog bins and even free poo bags. Cafe is only dog friendly outside which is better than not being, but not great sitting on...More

Even though it was a cold Saturday morning in January the car park was full and there were people everywhere. The entrance was crowded as people entered and then went to the toilets, making it difficult for those wanting to just enter to walk through....More

A fantastic day out for all the family. Great walks and information points all around as you go that kids find fun and learn from. A restaurant in the centre can get busy but loads of options for everyone.

We are friends of Westonbirt, so go for a walk regularly. This time of the year is not the best time for visiting! However in the spring and early summer the foliage and blossoms are fantastic. It’s also very good fun for families and dog...More

Spacious (free) car park was a very welcome sight on arrival after a longish drive. But I would have appreciated access to the toilets and perhaps the visitor centre BEFORE the payment kiosk and entry turnstiles. Once access gained, the site is spacious and very...More
