HIdden just round the corner from Whipsnade Safari Park, this National Trust site is unlike any other I've been to. A selection of trees planted and laid out in the shape of a typical cathedral - Lots of little things to look at and benches...More

Access is along a short pot-holed road and parking is free. By definition it is an area of trees but not sure what it is all about. Needs more information boards.

Essentially, Whipsnade Tree Cathedral is a collection of different types of trees, planted together in the shape of a cathedral. It may take some imagination to see the cathedral within the planting but it is still an interesting location. If you take books or are...More
