Sensing Nature Guided Walks

Let our visually impaired guides lead you through an immersive and interactive sensory experience that aims to shift your perception, enjoy the arboretum at a slower pace and explore the trees of Westonbirt through your nonvisual senses.

Walks occur at 11:30am every Friday of the month from April - September. 

Please note that dogs are not permitted on these walks (except assistance dogs). Some of our visually impaired guides will be assisted by a guide dog. Please do not disturb the assistance dogs while they are working. 

How long? Approx. 1.5 hours
How much? Free after admission.
Where to meet? Meet at the Welcome Building, where you will be guided to the starting point for the walk.
Do I need to book? No.
Dogs allowed? No (except assistance dogs).
What to wear? Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor walking as you will be going off path and over grass.
Accessibility? Dependent on weather, these sensory walks may not be suitable for wheelchair users due to the off path experience.
