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. Additionally the coffee van in that area was unnecessary as it only serves coffee in disposable cups (not environmentally friendly) and encourages people to then dispose of their cups in the woods. I also felt that the cost to enter was far too high - looks like Westonbirt is getting greedy!

I love this place and have been several times. Took a winter walk with the family as part of my mums 60th birthday celebration weekend. We had such a nice time. The weather held out (just) and we spent a few hours strolling around looking at the trees and the views. My three year old niece loved it. She was finding all kinds of leaves to make a picture. Really nice place to visit with the family.

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 walking. If you like to see a super variety of trees, this is the place for you.

The best time of the year to visit this lovely place. Every time I have been here give me the fresh new feeling: I never been here before. Well, trees are growing continuously so they look different every year I recon. This is the must see at Autumn
Staff are friendly and everything well organised. Family and dog friendly, recommended to everyone.
