Trees in the shape of a cathedral which if you wasn't told you probably wouldn't know but interesting and worth a visit.

We found this tree cathedral one Sunday, we didn't find it easy to find and must have taken a wrong turn coming back, however the tree cathedral itself it quite something, there are information boards around too

Found this place by accident and very pleased that we did. We had a lovely walk around and really enjoyed seeing the different trees and the variety of birds.

Monday 27th July 15, My husband and I visited Whipsnade Tree Cathedral at Whipsnade, near Dunstable in Bedfordshire. Whipsnade Tree Cathedral is a very peaceful place, with trees planted in the shape of a Medieval Cathedral. It was created after the First World War as a place of remembrance for fallen comrades. An avenue of Lime trees forms the Nave... More

Planted as a war memorial, this place is really quite moving, tranquil and beautiful. A haven of peace after a busy day at work. It can take a little while to orientate yourself with the plan, but it's worth the (not very big) effort. There are some nice little touches, such as the carvings in the chapels. I spent a... More

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
