It's easy to spend all day here. The arboretum is made up of the old and new arboretum, with only the new arboretum being open to dogs. For a morning or afternoon visit you can choose which part of the arboretum to visit. It's a lovely place to walk around, with different thing to see in each season. There is... More

We spent a delightful four and a half hours walking around Westonbirt Arboretum. The routes are clearly marked and perfectly maintained. Everyone we met, when walking around, was very friendly. The trees are spectacular. My husband has a great knowledge of trees but even he found species he had not seen before. I would thoroughly recommend a visit - fresh... More

Stunning autumn colours. Loved taking pictures of all the stunning scenery. Enjoyed it so much we became members which is great value for money. Went as a young couple and just loved a different experience and day out.

It was a nice November day so we decided to visit for our first time. We rang to book a disability scooter use for free, great service. We spent 3 hours and sticking to the main path route still did not manage to get all the way around. The trees were well on their way to being golden. We ended... More

Spent a fantastic half day here with the family at one of the best times of year - when the leaves are still on the trees but have changed to their autumn colours. Lots of walking but good facilities on the site - highly recommended for nature lovers.

We visited Westonbirt to see the Autumn colours and were not disappointed; we took the dog and I booked a mobility scooter, the dog thought he had died and gone to heaven with all his well behaved friends enjoying a walk and was bowled over by the number of trees to explore. We managed a1 1/2 hour walk with me... More

I've been to Westonbirt arboretum on several occasions, at different times of the year and it is one of my favourite places. I love how well managed it is, and you can spend all day here walking if you wish as it's so big. The entry fee may seem a little high, but I think it's well worth it and... More

I went there to see Japanese maples, and surely it was amazing. Everywhere just riot of colours. We mailed them before visit, asking about the timings about the peak colour time, and they told us October 3rd or 4th week, so went there on Cotober 19th. Please don't forget to carry some water with you, its a long way to... More

This was a first visit to Westonbirt by my wife and I and we loved every moment of our visit. We arrived at 11am and departed at 15:30hrs and managed to see the highlights which were wonderful. Our fist stop was the restaurant where we both enjoyed a Bacon & Brie + Cranberry Panini plus a cup of tea at... More
