Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury

Visit one of the most spectacular tree gardens in the world, with over 15,000 specimens and a 300m sky walkway to explore. A glorious ever-changing landscape, it's a brilliant family day out.

Westonbirt Arboretum, located three miles south of Tetbury, is one of the most spectacular tree gardens in the world. A nature-lovers paradise, it’s a stunning place to relax, stroll around and spend a few restorative hours. Home to an enormous collection of trees, brace yourself for an explosion of colour, with 15,000 specimens and 2,500 species of tree from all over the world, as well as five national tree collections.

Started as a passion project in Victorian times, it has blossomed into one of the best visitor destinations in Gloucestershire. Covering 600 acres, with plenty of natural play areas and several restaurants including a smokehouse, Westonbirt provides an amazing canvas of colour all year round. It’s famed for its incredible autumn scenes but it’s breathtaking the whole year round; from spring blossom and summer blooms to a stunning winter landscape.

A tried and tested family day out (we go there all the time), one of the coolest things here to do is the Sky Walkway. This 300m (984ft) wooden ramp is thought to be the longest in the UK and offers a unique bird’s-eye of the canopy and site. It’s fully accessible for buggies, mobility scooters, wheelchairs, and the crow’s nest, rope bridge and fun interactive hotspots make it a must see for visiting families. Check in for regular events taking place such as great school holiday activities such as the new Superworm activity trail for the littles.
