Excellent for adults and children to explore

Lovely to visit in every season, there are great views of Surrey countryside, areas for children to explore and a small café for a drink or ice cream after a visit.

Nice place and would be good when the trees etc are in colour. But N T charge is very high for what it is.

A typically well-run cafe at the entrance to this lovely National Trust property is the perfect place to have a snack before exploring the Arboretum. It is a wonderful place at any time of the year, much loved by small children who get to know all the magical carved wooden animals and now the wooden fairy houses which are to... More

I took my 97 year old mother to this wonderful place where we have many memories. When I was visiting from the US with my children, Mum always took us for a walk at Winkworth; I have vivid memories of the azaleas later in the Spring. However, Mum and I took a there in March and even though the leaves... More

We went for a family day here with my 60-something parents, they loved it - and despite struggling a little with the hill on the way back up, the views were so stunning they powered through. A rather triumphant coffee in the cafe followed!

I've been to Winkworth many times but I must admit my favourite time of year to go is in the Autumn when all the Acers are turning. But no matter what time of year you go there is always something to see and often activities as well. With several walks laid out there is something for everyone here.

I have been to Winkworth many times but not having anyone to go with on a weekday I decided to join the organised walk. The guide knew all the Latin names for everything and the history which was interesting. However I found the pace too slow. The group were retired people some with mobility problems. Although the weather was sunny... More

But a must when the bluebells or azelias are out. Typical overprices National trust cafe. But a good place for kids to visit if they are doing a nature project

I live fairly locally to this place, am a National Trust member and have been here several times in recent years. Although I appreciate other reviewers' concerns about apparently high entrance fees for non-members, lack of comprehensive café/restaurant facilities, and difficulties in identifying tree types because they don't all have labels on them, they should remember that this place doesn't...

Winkworth arboretum is a wonderful place to go for a stroll in all seasons. A huge variety of trees displayed on and through a valley with great views and a lake to hold ones attention. The cafe does a great bacon butty and it is a great example of how the National trust holds beautiful places for the use of... More
