About Westonbirt Arboretum

JOURNEY INTO A WORLD OF TREES AT WESTONBIRT ARBORETUM

Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, managed by the Forestry Commission, is one of the finest collections of temperate trees and shrubs in the world.

The 600 acre arboretum is home to 2,500 different species of trees and over 15,000 individual specimens.

Westonbirt offers an unforgettable day out in all seasons - from the magnolias and rhododendrons in spring, the green leafy glades in summer and the autumnal colour explosion of the world famous Japanese maples.

Events, workshops and family activities run throughout the year. Signature events include Treefest in August and the spectacular Enchanted Christmas illuminated trail in November and December.
