The Arboretum is a wonderful world of trees and shrubs. There are 18,000 of them from all over the world, producing 600 acres of beautifully landscaped countryside. This makes Westonbirt one of the finest tree collections in the world today. However it is the combination of wild flowers, fungi, birds and animals as well as the trees themselves that make Westonbirt such a special place to so many people. This rich diversity of plant and animal life makes Westonbirt truly a place to visit at every season of the year.
At Westonbirt we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive service that listens and responds to the needs of all our visitors. Whether you are a group of cubs, A-level students, primary school children or octogenarians we are constantly striving to improve our learning services to cater for everyone - to truly make the arboretum a place that connects people with trees – from the moment you book your visit to the time your group leave.
