Westonbirt Arboretum, Trees, Trees, Treeeeeeees!


An enormous park dedicated to all things green… And red… And orange… And golden… And brown….

Westonbirt Arboretum is one of the most spectacular tree gardens in the world. Covering 600 acres, the arboretum is an historic collection of over 3000 different trees and shrub species many of which are rare or endangered in their native lands. It’s a great place for a day out and really comes alive during autumn when all the trees change co lour.

There are designated paths that lead you around all the brightest and most beautiful displays, with trees deliberately chosen to create gorgeous color combination’s. On a bright autumn day it can get very busy as lots of families chose to escape the nearby cities and enjoy all the colors of nature. You could chose a short walk to see just the highlights or go off exploring on your own to see what you can find, you’re bound to come home with a roll or two of lovely photos.
