Work has begun!
We have achieved our fundraising target for Phase One of the Westonbirt Project.
Construction work has started and is expected to be completed in early summer 2014.
Westonbirt Arboretum's current visitor 'arrival' can be confusing and frustrating. It doesn't take long for a queue of cars to form and when visitors do park, they often miss out on important information.
A recent survey found that only 21% of visitors found our arrival information and 32% of visitors either didn’t know that we have an information desk or didn’t think it 'was for them'.
In addition, visitors are currently parking on our environmentally sensitive Downs.
The Westonbirt Project will improve the Westonbirt experience for everybody who visits.
