Have a tree-mendous day out
You can combine the Trees from around the world and Cones in the park activities when you visit Bedgebury Pinetum. At the same time you'll be able to spot the Gruffalo and his friends who are hidden around the pinetum. Or explore further in to Bedgebury forest on our plant hunter themed play trail, hire a bike to ride the family cycle trail or swing by Go Ape for a tree top adventure.
Please remember whilst you're exploring Bedgebury not to climb in our trees. You'll see many of the trees in the pinetum are in cages, this means that they're young specimens with especially delicate branches!
