Plan your visit
Below you’ll find everything you need to know on how to book, plan and enjoy your visit.
Booking your tickets
In order to visit the arboretum, you’ll need to pre-book your tickets (this also applies to Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members and reciprocal partner gardens).
Standard ticketing prices will apply, though if you are a Friend of Westonbirt Arboretum or a reciprocal partner garden you won’t be charged for your own tickets – you’ll just need to provide your membership number (this can be found on your card) when you book. If you wish to book additional tickets for other people, standard charging will apply.
Under 5's are free and don't require a ticket.
Pre-booking is available up to 7 days in advance.
When you book your tickets, you’ll be asked to book a 20- minute arrival time-slot for the day of your visit. Once in the arboretum you can stay for as long you like, however be aware that the arboretum closes at 5pm.
A call back system is available on 0300 068 0400
Unfortunately if you are unable to display a valid ticket (and membership card if applicable) upon arrival, our staff will not be able to allow you onto the site as we cannot take on the door payments at this time.
Mobility scooters are available to book online. Last time slot to book a scooter is 2.20pm. Scooters must be returned by 4pm. If a scooter is essential to your visit please check availability first, book your scooter and then purchase your entry tickets.
