Autumn visit very worthwhile, stunning colour, particularly the Japanese Maples.

Enjoyable walk at your own pace, stunning colours in Autumn. Restaurant good and outdoor areas to sit and eat.

We were surprised there was no seniors discount as the majority of mid-week visitors are likely to over 60. Camellias and magnolias were beautiful, a great place for children to run around. No shop at the moment.

Westonbirt is always a fine place to visit,something different to see as seasons change. However beware if you have not been there since the changes have been made,then you could be in for a longer walk than previous.Due to the placement of the new Welcome Centre,it is now a fair walk to the Arboretum or Silk Wood,even before your enjoyment...

very nice walk around here. I do however think 18.00 for the two of us was expensive. Enjoyed a cappuccino outside as the weather was good. families obviously have a good time here as there appeared to be a lot going on for them.

A beautiful place with Fantastic walks. A nice playground for the children and a decent cafe for a nice cuppa. Well worth a family visit.

We tend to pop in now and again when we are passing between Wales and the south of England, so it's good to see the changes through the seasons. The annual ticket gives entry to many other attractions including the Wales Botanic Gardens and Kew which makes it excellent value. There are a couple of major areas to explore that... More

While I accept it,s probably not the best time of year to visit an arboretum,I was disappointed that there weren't,t any or very few natural flowers under the trees,a few wild primroses,one small drift of daffodils,no snowdrops or crocus.Very bare and stark on a cold Thursday in March.On the plus side the cafe was lovely and the birdsong glorious and...

A lovely walk could get away from people when needed and it was lovely to see the buds just starting to form and some of the early spring blooms already out
