About Westonbirt Arboretum

A magnificent arboretum which is a joy to visit at any time of year. It is run by the Forestry Commission and has a dazzling display of in excess of 17,000 trees and seemingly limitless flowers, shrubs and plants. You do not have to be a gardener to enjoy this precious place, all you need is an appreciation of the great outdoors and a sense of joy at the rich bounty mother nature has provided.

Here you can see superb displays of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, beautiful Magnolias, and in autumn the colours of the Acer Glade are spectacular beyond belief. From the first peep of gentle snowdrops and crocus on the ground heralding the arrival of early spring, the gardens here are a triumph of scent and colour. In summer the air is heady with the perfume of lovely roses, while in the woods the earth is fragrant with the smell of moss, rare plants and delicate wild flowers. There are wonderful tree collections, including English Oak and Japanese Maple. All can be explored by following waymarked walks along gravel paths threaded through every area of the arboretum. Should you become a little weary, well not to worry, for in this dreamy paradise there are ample resting places where you can sit, read a book or even paint a picture.

Westonbirt has an impressive visitor centre, offers an exciting year long programme of events, has a delightful cafe where you can relax over coffee or a snack, hosts a Christmas Craft Fair, and has a glorious period in December when the gardens are illuminated by thousands of coloured lights. At this time there are special late night openings for Christmas Carols, a glass of mulled wine, and the opportunity to choose your Christmas Tree.
