We haven't been for a while and the car park and entry has moved and is modernised. Still as lovely as ever walking round the various areas. Great if you are a photographer plenty to let your imagination run riot. We ate in the restaurant and they seem to have got the menu just about right. The service was really... More

it is a very long walk from the disabled car parking to the cafe. There should be a car parl for the disabled nearer to the facilities. We won't bother going again

I have a membership so visit regularly particularly in the spring and autumn. Its a peaceful space to be in and it is easily possible to be alone there even when it is busy, especially in Silk Wood. The 2 major changes of season are probably the best times for a one off visit. Also weekdays during term time are... More

Perfect place to be at peace with nature for a few hours. Cafe is good for a coffee and cake to bring you back to the real world again!

Spent six hours there, walked round the whole of the Arboretum, not just the area by the visitor centre. Truly a wonderful place that I would not tire of visiting. Excellent entry price. This was my third visit.

At first we thought it was a bit pricey for a walk in a park. We did the silk route first and thought not enough info. After lunch we did the old aboretum which was magnificent! Amazing specimens much more info. Would have liked to have spent longer. Recommend spend the day and take a picnic.

As friends of Westonbirt we are regular visitors. Seeing the trees and foliage change through the seasons is a spectacle to cherish. Unfortunately the catering on site is very expensive and of average quality. I very much recommend a picnic to those who visit. Picnic facilities are superb. I urge the forestry commission to review the onsite catering suppliers as... More

We haven't been to an outdoor concert here before but were lucky enough to have tickets to see Robert Plant on July 10th. We did read the details beforehand and so - like just about everyone else- we took in fold up chairs and a little picnic, and enjoyed ourselves before the main event. All parking and directions were very... More

Only ardent Monty Python fans will understand the title! I'm a 'Oh look there's another tree' type person but I thoroughly enjoyed my day wandering around Silk Wood and the Old Arboretum. I could watch out for birds while my wife studied the trees. If you know what you would like to see, it is good fun to locate them... More
