Come to Westonbirt Arboretum for its internationally renowned collection of trees. The venue has labeled nearly 15,000 individual trees covering some 3,000 types. Walk along a self-guided trail to see species such as maple, magnolia, white beam, and oak. Keep an eye out for rare varieties such as the Brazilian pine, dawn redwood, and Patagonian cypress. The 240 hectares (600 acres) of land host various types of birds, so bring your binoculars if you enjoy bird-watching. You can visit the arboretum any time of year: colorful flowers and blossoms show themselves in spring, leaves are most plentiful in summer, a kaleidoscope of colors comes out in autumn, and conifers stand out in winter. If you have difficulty exploring the venue on foot, inquire about borrowing one of the available electric scooters.

Awful. Asked nicely if I could nip up to the Friends of Westonbirt shop to buy a calendar. Non negotiable as I’m not a member. What has happened to a bit of flexibility and good will to buy...

Amazing place with so many options of trails! The autumn colors are incredible!!!! 🍂🍁 We spent 6 hours just walking around and exploring... The trails are accessible and there is also a tree top bridge which was a great attraction for our son! The food stands were great too! Highly recommended!
Beautiful walk, definitely recommend going in autumn, the colours were stunning 😍 lots of amazingly large trees. The paths were nice and flat so very relaxing stroll and accessible for all. My only complaint was that there were only toilets at the entrance, it would have been helpful to have some toilets along the routes.
