Autumn Family Trail - Inspired by autumn

Did you know Westonbirt Arboretum was created by Robert Holford and his son George during Victorian times. They planted it in such a way that they ‘painted’ with trees, each view designed as a beautiful picture. Be inspired by autumn and complete tasks around the arboretum the whole family can enjoy. 

Along the trail you'll discover more about the amazing trees we care for here while creating your own autumn kaleidoscope, composing a leaf storm score and leaving a food trail for woodland creatures to follow. 

Pick up your free family activity trail map from the Welcome Building when you arrive or download from the trail information box to the right.
