It is lovely to walk through the Westonbirt Arboretum, run by the Forestry Commission, especially in the Autumn as the leaves are turning. Free guided walks are available. but we explored by ourselves amongst the giant redwoods and other specimen trees, along avenues, reading information in places about climate change or other woodland topics.

The Arboretum was created by Robert Stayner Holford in the Victorian times, and by 1855 the Old Arboretum was laid out, which explains the height and size of some of these wonderful trees today.

There is a cafe / restaurant open daily 9am to 5pm, with the arboretum often open into the evenings with events, or just for walks.

A lovely place to stop and explore, with good tracks and some hard surfaced.
