Please note that Westonbirt Arboretum does not accept the Discovery Pass.
Dogs are welcome on the central downs area on a lead and in Silk Wood, which makes up around two-thirds of the arboretum. Dogs are permitted off the lead in Silk Wood as long as they are kept under control, remain in sight and return when called.
The Old Arboretum and inside the main restaurant are no dog areas (except assistance dogs). This helps provide a safe space for visitors with young children and mobility scooters.
Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the whole arboretum.
Dog bins and poo bags are available throughout the site and dog water is available at the restaurant, Great Oak Hall and Welcome Building.
Children's Bikes and Scooters
Children may ride bikes and scooters in the arboretum, as long as the bike/scooter measures 70cm or less from the ground to the top of the handle bars.
Please check your bike or scooter before you visit to make sure it fits the bill. Parents and guardians should ensure that children ride carefully throughout the arboretum and be mindful of other visitors
Please note that members of the public are not permitted to fly drones onsite at Westonbirt Arboretum. Professional photographers and members of the press wishing to fly drones at the Arboretum should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
