This is a well kept and interesting place and great to combine with a walk to Dunstable Downs. Better still, it is perfect for children in playing different games (40:40 etc.). The hedges, trees, and different areas really lend themselves for this.

After a visit to the Downs, my GF and I were travelling home and spotted a sign to the Tree Cathedral. Neither of us knew the place existed and I only knew of one such place in Milton Keynes. We turned the car around and parked up in the small car park near to a group of 3 or 4... More

We went to the Downs recently on a beautiful day, the view amazing. On the way for lunch we thought we would have a look at the Tree Cathedral. What a beautiful place, very peaceful. The chapels have little benches with carved with rabbits and acorns on them and they are lovely. We plan to come back and explore more... More

When you are walking the Downs try and get your walk to go through this "tree cathedral" as it worth going out of your way for. It is about half a mile from the front entrance of Whipsnade ZSL park and perhaps two miles from the Dunstable Downs visitor centre. If you are walking on the "Icknield Way" then its... More

The tree catherdral is one of my favourite places in the summer for a picnic! It's lovely and peacefull and just a little to the right you have Del Farm where you can have a wander and see some of the animals through the fence.

We went for a walk and had a great time - The tree cathedral itself is very pretty and if you then branch out of it there's a short trail that leads all the way to Dunstable Downs. We walked through it all and back to the free parking area in less than 2 hours and truly enjoyed it.

Good environs and a nice picnic site. Can't wait for the fruit trees to mature. Also there is a donation box which gives an assurance of enjoying the site in years to come

Free, but does have a donation box so you can contribute to support this attraction if choose. We stumbled across this place out of sheer accident. On the grounds are many species of trees and walks through the wild plant life. Furthermore, there are an array of benches to sit on and take in the wonderful tranquility of the quiet... More
