I really wanted to like this - I went with someone who is not English, but really loves trees and wanted to learn about those growing in England. Trouble is the path too it was far too muddy (wellies only really this time of year). But the biggest problem is that there are a couple of signs outside the cathedral... More

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.

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
