This is going to be primarily a photo-based post, because I’ve written about Westonbirt Arboretum before and the photos really speak for themselves. I visited with my friend Emma in early November and found that the colours were a little past their best, but there were still plenty of bright red and orange trees to be found, a hearty meal in the cafe to be enjoyed, and a potter around the excellent gift shop (replete with Christmas items) to enjoy.
One thing different from last time was the installation of the new treetop walkway, which you can see in the first few photos below. It opened last year and gives you a different perspective on the arboretum’s renowned collection of trees. I particularly enjoyed the rope bridge and crow’s nest features, which were a bit like being on a pirate ship! Here are my photos of the walkway and some of the beautiful autumn colours – hope you enjoy them.
