The woodland walks are way-marked well and have informative points of interest signs at various places on the trails.

I attended the concert July 20 2014, queued for over an hour but secured a decent place near the stage. However, I was unable to see much of Katherine Jenkins and the supporting act as a considerable number of people, apparently with the blessing of the management, congregated in front of the stage completely blocking the view of the people...

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The old arboretum has some interesting trees but the summer isn't the time to see trees at their best. The old arboretum has a summer trail which highlights the trees that flower in the season, but sadly, the flowers were past their best. We preferred the natural woodland area. The cafe was disappointing - not a... More

Apart from the beautiful surroundings of the arboretum, which I have visited a number of times, Westonbirt is a great place for concerts. Went to see Kian Egan and Boyzone last night - fantastic - the crowds are very well managed and food and toilets easily available. A much cosier venue than the big arenas - and the added bonus...

Since I last visited there has been a major overhaul of the roads, parking, visitor centre and cafe facilities. it makes it a mcu more attractive place and the cafe and gift shop are excellent.

We spent a number of hours enjoying a wide variety of settings, from grassy avenues to wild looking areas.The paths were well kept and many areas were accessible to wheelchairs. The food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. We'll be back in the autumn when it is more colourful.

My Wife and i fancied a walk on a sunday morning and decided to go to Westonbirt as we hadn't been for a couple of years. The last time we went we just paid for parking and then went on in, but it is now £8 per person. I can see they've spent a lot of money there on new... More

Absolutely awful, easier access to Silk Wood for aged parent now seems impossible.20 minute time limit at the plant centre a joke. And as for the twice repeated lippy comment from the off going member of staff.... Delightful! Very much doubt I /we will be repeating our annual membership.

We spent a very enjoyable and leisurely time wandering round the grounds admiring the trees and shrubs of this superb arboretum. It is well worth a visit

Westonbirt is the national Arboretum and as you would expect has perfect specimens of trees and the waymarked walks are easy to follow. The weather was good the day of our visit w. hich makes the day and experience all the more enjoyable. The place is so big that even when there are a lot of visitors it never feels... More
