The Arboretum is now open for pre-booked visitors only. Bookings are made per vehicle and can only be made up to two weeks in advance.
In line with Government legislation, we ask all visitors to wear masks in all indoor spaces.
We have implemented new procedures to help keep our visitors and team members safe, including one way systems, additional cleaning regimes, amended food offer, digital chapel welcome talk and reduced daily capacity.
Our restaurant is currently offering a carry out and table service offer. If you wish to dine inside the restaurant, please book a table with our food services team on arrival.
Using our inspiring landscape as inspiration for a series of workshops and activities, the Arboretum’s learning team has ensured both the National Curriculum and Ofsted Common Inspection Framework are central to the content delivered.
We have a range of full day and half day activities available suitable for Key Stages 1 and 2, including interactive indoor sessions and outdoor walks.
From interactive Explorer Days, to tailored grounds tours or participation in an Act of Remembrance, we have lots for Key Stages 3 and 4 to so here at the Arboretum.
Schools are welcome to visit the site and deliver their own learning activities. Visits can include self-led tours of the Arboretum and exploration of our free exhibitions, including Landscapes of Life. We kindly request that anyone wishing to do a self-led visit still informs us of their arrival beforehand, by booking your coach in using the booking form below.
