Batsford Arboretum is home to one of the largest private tree collections in the country with something to see throughout the year. Enjoy early colour from the snowdrops, daffodils and spectacular Japanese flowering cherries; escape the heat under the tree canopy in summer and prepare to be amazed by the outstanding autumn colour!

Bring the whole family (including the dog) and explore 56 acres of wild gardens, paths and streams; marvel at stunning views and find the beautiful oriental-influenced statues tucked into leafy glades. 

You’ll find delicious lunches including yummy snack boxes for children, hot drinks and home-baked cakes from the Garden Terrace Café. Enjoy your meal on the wooden deck where you can soak up the sun whilst the children burn off some energy in our play area - be sure to visit the parrots in our aviary while you’re there! The play area is free of charge to use and is suitable for children under the age of 8.

The Arboretum and Garden Centre at Batsford are open from 9.30am-5.00pm Monday-Saturday, 10.00am-5.00pm on Sundays (last entry into the Arboretum is 4.00pm).
