A beautiful filming location...  

Westonbirt Arboretum is based in Gloucestershire and its historic, Victorian, picturesque landscape makes it an ideal filming location. 

With 600 acres of unrivalled outdoor space including the formality of the Old Arboretum and the natural woodland in Silk Wood, there are many gems of filming opportunity.

The Old Arboretum is a carefully designed landscape dating back to the 1850s, with grassy rides, vistas and trees from all around the world.

Silk Wood is a semi-natural woodland with ongoing open space to fulfil all ideas - from deep dark woodland scenes to lavish landscapes. 

Westonbirt certainly has much to offer and is known for its spectacular colours in all seasons, creating a magical backdrop for any type of scene.
