    Looking for somewhere green and peaceful to visit on a summer's afternoon, I stumbled across Arley Arboretum on Trip Advisor. It was worth the 45-minute drive from Birmingham. Though relatively small ...  more »

  • We visited on recommendation as we were staying near by. We weren't disappoint. On entry it looks quaint. Small plant sales area and rows of poly tunnels in front of a walled garden. You pay in the tea rooms (adults £5, children £2). We only bought teas and an ice cream so can't comment on the food but the cakes on display were varied at looked delicious. There is an impressive outdoor area to the tea room as well as a few indoor tables. The staff were friendly. The first thing you come to is the amazing Italian garden with an enclosed picnic area behind it. From here the grounds open up into a mass of trees, gardens, open grassed areas, and pathways. There were 4 trails for children to do and walking routes for adults. You could view the Severn Valley and watch the steam trains pass by on the other side of the river. Arley station is within walking distance as is a pub. We'll worth the visit. You can also buy a seasonal ticket - adults £20, children £8.
  • Nice village setting on the outskirts of Kidderminster, gardens are nice to walk through, children welcome too.
  • Amazing place, so big and plenty to see, had a lovely walk around
  • Poor signage when going around lovely building some areas looked very run down and unloved
  • There ought to be more reviews of this lovely place. The grounds are natural and beautiful and there is a wonderful courtyard with pools and a fountain. The food in the restaurant is very good and the staff are efficient and friendly. Outside the arboretum itself there is a splendid walk down to the river. All of this, along with the background hooting and chuffing of the SVR steam train makes for an excellent day out.
