We stopped here on our way to London to break the journey. We had a wonderful walk through the meadow, along the lake and then through their trees. Really peaceful and a great place to stretch the legs and see nature.

This is a tranquil, relaxing area with a diverse range of things to see. Lovely forest, with a range of trees from many countries, lake, woodland meadows, boat shed, some challenging walking tracks, rhododendrims & camellias. We went on a perfect summers day but I would love to revisit in the Autumn just to see the colours. Dr Fox the... More

Visited with family including small children. Nice 1.5 mile hike thru the woods and hills. Plenty of entertainment for all. Highly recommended.

Visited Winkworth on a sunny summers day. It was a great day out with lots of walking tracks and some great views across the Arboretum. Recommend it for a great days walk and good for picnics with the family and friends.

As it was a nice sunny day we thought we would take a drive out to Godalming and have walk round the National Trust's Winkworth Arboretum. We've been visiting the place for nearly 40 years, it's still pretty much the same now as it was then. It's a marvellous natural landscaped place with an abundance of lovely shrubs, bluebells etc.

The main entrance is at the top of the hill, and then there are a variety of paths (and steps) some of which skirt the hill, some descend steeply, all of which lead through the vast tree collection. There are open areas, and a real treat are the lakes at the bottom, and even more the boat house complete with... More

We've now visited winkworth a number of times at various times of year and absolutely love it. It was here that we signed up to the national trust membership and now we regularly visit for a nice walk on a sunny day. Can't fault it.

Have a wander and drink in the natural beauty, this is a bargain at £7/adult. Bring a picnic to eat in the boathouse on the pond, right next to the giant buzzing beehive (they're very mellow, no worries). Beautiful vistas from the top of the valley, winding down to the valley floor get up close and personal to champion trees... More

The arboretum is a delight with bluebells in April or May followed by the stunning show of azalea and rhododendrons. The autumn colours are dramatic too. It can get a little busy on weekends.
