Westonbirt, The National Arboretum


The Victorian-era National Arboretum boasts more than 16,000 trees (of around 2,500 species) from Britain, China, North America, Japan, Chile and other temperate climates. Thriving specimens populate the Arboretum's 600 acres and line much of its 17 miles of footpaths. The Arboretum dates to 1829, and was designed by Lewis Vulliamy. Vulliamy also designed the Snooty Fox in Tetbury and Dorchester House (demolished to make way for the hotel of the same name) in London. It's especially special in autumn of course, a season inaugurated by the late-summer Treefest in August, but it's wondrous at any time of year. The magical Enchanted Christmas illuminated trails enliven the lead up to Christmas.
