I have to admit I do not understand some of the low scores the Tree Cathedral has received. If you study how and why it came about you would find it hard to be critical. I particularly enjoy it in spring, when everything is renewing,...More

I am on a mission to cover as many national trust locations as possible.. I liked the sound of a tree cathedral and as we were at Dunstable downs, we added this on. Difficult to find, and this site is unmanned. But if you don't...More

Tricky to find, you could easily miss it. Access road very pitted, car park small and crowded. In a complete huff by the time we got here. Soon chilled out. The actual site is very beautiful and well worth a visit. Remarkably peaceful and still...More

Walked here from the Chilterns visitor centre. Easy walk but not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchair s. Such a peaceful place, bigger than I expected. Lovely layout and at one with nature.

If you like walking this is a nice area to walk to and there is a car park nearby if you don't like walking

The fact that someone took the time to design and plant the many different trees, bushes and hedgerows is staggering, the thought that has been put into the place is amazing. We attended an anniversary celebration and it was wonderful. A remarkable place.

Some parts work better than others but this is worth stopping at for a wander round if you are passing. Personally, I wouldn't travel to it specially.

It's a beautiful spot that's lovely and shady in the midday sun. It's a lovely tranquil place (although today our 4 young children played a noisy fame of hide and seek!). Beware of timing your arrival though - we got stuck in the queue for...More

Been here many times over the years and it's constantly improved over that time. It has all the animals you'd expect to find at a zoo, seemingly well looked dafter in good conditions. I believe they do good work for animal preservation, welfare etc. too....More
