  • All arboretums are worth visiting - they are major expositions of trees and shrubs from around the world. Batsford is very good but not excellent like some others. Do go there - there are interesting ...  more »
  • The arboretum has an amazing selection of trees and plants and various curios to spot on your way round (all helpfully marked on the map you are issued with). There is good food in the cafe too.  more »
  • A lovely walk around the garden and arboretum. Takes about 2hrs would recommend going late afternoon about 1400-1500 when it's very quiet.  more »

  • Right size for a good half a day wandering and discovering. Impressive and varied collection. I like that most are labeled. Interesting landscape and features too. Well worth a visit and the entrance fee.
  • Beautiful park with lots of variety. Especially pretty on the spring. Big enough for a leisurely stroll or a run and nice activities for kids too. Seems to get busy later in the day.
  • Large area of woodland with easy access paths and plenty of year round interest. Could do with a little more for kids to do but all in all a good family destination
  • A very pleasant morning was spent looking around the arboretum. We were not too late to catch the autumn colours. A useful tip at this time of year is to turn up early. We arrived about 10:00 and we almost had the place to ourselves, a bonus for getting photos without having to wait for other visitors to walk out of the viewfinder! By the time we returned to the cafĂ© the ques for the entrance were stretching for quite a distance. We had a good meal at the restaurant before buying a few plants at the garden centre.
  • Great place but wrong address. Entrance is in the south. Look for "Batsford Arboretum & Garden Centre" on GMaps
