Westonbirt Arboretum, Tetbury

4.2
#1 of 18 in Wildlife in Cotswolds
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.

  • Good place for a day out. Dogs allowed in one part of the park but not in the restaurant which means you'll have to eat outside if you have one. That is OK if the weather is good but a bit annoying if its cold or raining.
  • Beautiful place of amazing beauty. Has all facilities you would need for a day out. Hot food kiosk's, restaurant, gifts, wc's etc. Can be very busy in the autumn and a bit muddy.
  • Lovely evening
  • Always good
