Had a visit to the Tree Cathedral today and was pleasantly surprised, you need an element of imagination to visualise the cathedral but all in all it is very well thought out with different species. It's very quiet and with the bird song the sense of being one with nature is very clear. My only concern was the car park... More

Anyone who is in touch with nature would love the experience. As National Trust members the wife and I simply love this site. It is absolutely awesome. There is a sense of peace and tranquility there. If you love trees and the amazing things that can be created with them, you must give this a go. You will not be... More

I'm not sure the Tree Cathedral is worth going out of one's way to see, but pleasant for a brief visit nevertheless.

Really peaceful and relaxing, just to wander up and down. Also good for a picnic :) Its part of a circular walk where you can include the Dunstable Downs, with great views.

We have gone there on a rare occasion to walk the dog somewhere different. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone as I don't think there is much to see, although the chruch across the way is nice to visit. BEWARE though as in the last few years there have been many car break-ins, including mine and they take anything,... More

Lovely peaceful area and would suit the summer months more than winter or spring. I would suggest going here when the blossom season is around and fairly sparse at this time of year. Be aware that it's really quite slippery underfoot when wet partly due to the amount of fallen leaves. The Cathedral is not that big but worth a... More

We called in to the Whipsnade Tree Cathedral when we were in the area - this is a free attraction with a donations box in the car park, and well worth a visit. The trees are laid out to form the pillars of a 'green cathedral' with nave and chancel and various 'chapels' etc. It is a place to come... More

I was really glad we discovered this lovely peaceful spot - we were the only people there which made it especially nice. We enjoyed walking around the different parts of the cathedral - all set out with different trees. Some parts were quite muddy, so suitable footwear is needed. It was free to visit, so great for a little stop.

Beautiful ambience. The benches are marvelous and it's like an adventure as you explore. Regret we didn't have more time to soak it in. Beware of potholes on the road/drive leading in.

Such a peaceful place in an idyllic setting. Forget about the negative comments about this hidden gem, to every person who visits, they will gain a new enlightenment. It's one of my retreats that I go to for peace and tranquility. Enjoy. Through your own perspective.
