The Woodland Playground is fantastic fun for little ones while our events programme of gardening visits and lectures, children's holiday activities, flora and fauna special interest events, craft workshops and outdoor activities ensures there's always something to do and see here.
There's also a tea-room serving delicious, seasonal, home-cooked food, and a variety of souvenirs and gifts are available in the Arboretum Shop.
