Westonbirt, The National Arboretum


The Victorian-era National Arboretum boasts more than 15,000 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 its 17 miles of footpaths. The arboretum is especially attractive in autumn, 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. A recent addition is the incredible walkway; a 300-metre long path that takes you high above the trees, and offers a marvellous view of the Arboretum. Photo credit: Pete Thompson
