I thoroughly enjoyed my recent trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. Although we visited as a couple, I appreciated the efforts made throughout the grounds to appeal to children and keep them engaged with regards to learning about nature and their environment. The sky walk has great views of various different tree species and the old arboretum is beautiful. My only issue... More

Great place to visit whether you are into trees and plants or not. Both us and our kids love it whether its wet or dry. Arboretum is well kept and maintained. We had lunch in the restaurant which was good value and the food was excellent. We normally walk the path to the Gruffalo which has plenty of activities on... More

It doesn't matter what time of year you visit Westonbirt, there is always something new to see & do. Even when it is very busy there are still areas where you feel you have the arboretum to yourself. Stunning trees & plants. Great place to enjoy nature at its best.

Our first visit to Westonbirt was on a lovely sunny and mild February day; dozens of charming children on half-term were enjoying the open space, accompanied by their very noisy mothers. The car-parking here is not well signed: it simply doesn't 'flow' for some reason - there are no arrows on the ground and the signs are not easy to... More

The park is lovely, so beautifully maintained. Great for kids too! Lovely walks. Our only gripe was that the cafe was very understaffed. It was a lovely day and lots of people were sitting outside whilst their children played on the play area. The young man serving was run ragged. He did his best but the queue was too long.... More

Had a great time and was nice to have tired out Frenchies on holiday beautiful walk and very dog friendly. It was a cold day and that made it all the more magical. Great wood carvings as you walk around and cafe to get warm drinks in. Can't wait to come back

I've visited the arboretum many times over the years and still have to get my annual fix. It's a stunning place at all times of the year.

Excellent facilities although I didn't explore all of the amenities and sights. I was too busy making a chair, courtesy of Paul Heyden and his excellent tuition and Green Woodworking skills.

What a stunning collection of trees to gently wander around, so glad we went, the colours and textures are just superb. A very relaxing place to visit. Tasty offerings in the café with locally sourced foods.
