The Westonbirt Project

Making a big difference to everybody who comes to the arboretum, the project will mean a better visit and a better understanding of the heritage and importance of this world class tree collection.

Phase One is now completed.

The new Biffa Award Welcome Building to improve visitor facilities has been built. It includes the Christopher Mitchell information Centre which is packed full of fun and useful information about the arboretum. Do come in and have a play!

Thanks to the new car park, cars are no longer parking on the Grade I registered landscape and this is now being restored to the downland landscape it was always intended to be.

Fundraising for Phase Two of the project is now underway. This phase will give visitors an exciting new perspective on trees and allow us to better care for the arboretum’s important collection.
