We're lucky to live very close to Winkworth Arboretum. It gives us the opportunity to see it throughout the year, and on each visit - no matter what the season - this special place offers up something different. Today's visit was with 3 young nephews & nieces. We had a magical picnic in the surprisingly quiet Badger Bowl, followed by... More

Well worth a visit as it is very picturesque, especially in the Autumn. Lots of nice walks and good views for photographers or artists.

Had not visited for a number of years. Had a nice light lunch in the café before we started. We then went on a fairly extensive walk. The walk brought back many happy memories of past visits. The great variety of trees and shrubs. The multitude of colours. The peacefulness and tranquillity. The lovely lake. We won't leave it so... More

We absolutely loved our visit here. The 3 walking routes were easy to follow. The boat house was so tranquil. Lots of benches to rest along the way. I think this is my favourite national trust place to date !

Went on a walk and picnic here, was very quiet and peaceful. Has a really lovely lake where we saw a heron. May have got attacked by geese but was a great day out...look forward to returning :) Also has a nice seating area at the front with a little cafe.

Amazing for working up to or walking off a Sunday lunch. Scenery wonderful and lots of different paths and routes depending on who you go with. We have been with small children and elderly grandparents - magical !

Go for a walk with family or friends, there are several options for route length and a nice little cafe if you need refreshments. It is very scenic and I would imagine different and different times of year; perhaps a revisit is necessary.

A great place to visit for a peaceful walk with family or friends. The National Trust has owned the arboretum for 60 years and has built up a fantastic collection of more than 1,000 different shrubs and trees, many of them rare.The most impressive displays are in spring, with magnolias, bluebells and azaleas. In autumn, the colour of the foliage... More

A lovely place to stroll around, especially in early Spring for the Bluebells, and Autumn for the changing leaves, but good at any time of the year.
