Located just outside Godalming, on the Hascombe Road, I've driven past loads of times but am so glad I finally got round to going in! It's only £7.20 per adult (£3.60 per child or £18 for a family ticket). Created by Dr Wilfrid Fox (Chairman of the Roads Beautifying Association) over 15 years from 1937 as an experiment in different... More

A beautiful place to be at any time of year, my partner and I have walked here many times. There is a little tea room on exit which looks lovely however we have never been.

Have been many times. Wonderful in spring for primroses, snowdrops followed by bluebells and magnolias; then there's a wonderful little azalea walk later on. The colours in the autumn are wonderful. Nice little cafe at the entrance.

These NT gardens are down the road from where we live and as we are NT members we get in free but they are worth visiting in different seasons. There are some gorgeous views that are a bit of a climb but do worth it. I love the boathouse but watch out for the bees in summer that have made... More

We certainly chose the right time to visit Winkworth. A beautiful warm sunny spring day. The bluebells and azaleas were in bloom and the perfume was incredible and the vistas stunning. Colour every where and sweet perfume from the yellow azaleas hanging in the air and we were seranaded by birdsong. Looking forward to returning in the autumn

It was my first time at Winkworth Arboretum. A few logistic points followed by a tip of where to see the best bluebell spread. The journey took about 1 hour from central London - thank goodness for the satnav. Highlights were the bluebells - see my tip below and the azaleas as well. This NT property is not a mega... More

beautiful walks, beautiful swathes of bluebells, beautiful views, be prepared to walk uphill and down. And finish off at the tearoom for tea and scones.

5/05 We arrived this morning at 09.30. The gate to the car park was closed and locked. On the car park were some six parked cars, clearly from staff and/or volunteers. We waited for a while and more cars drove up, waiting before the gate and spilling over on the road. In the end, about 10.05, some nineteen cars were... More

The arboretum itself is amazing - just gorgeous. The display of bluebells is surely the best I think I've ever seen in my life! The site is brilliant for a good strenuous walk and fantastic views of the beautiful Surrey Hills.........now for the whinge! We are NT members and owners of a little westie dog who we like to bring... More
