November at Westonbirt Arboretum: A feast for the senses

Posted: October 31, 2023 at 11:51 am

The trees are ablaze with autumn colours, creating a truly breathtaking sight. From the fiery reds of the maples to the golden yellows of the oaks, there's a riot of colour to feast your eyes on this month.

As you wander through the arboretum, you'll be enveloped in the crisp autumn air and the sound of rustling leaves underfoot. Take a deep breath and savour the fresh, earthy scent. It's the perfect way to relax and de-stress.

Westonbirt Arboretum has something to offer everyone, no matter your age or interests. If you're looking for a peaceful stroll, take a wander through the Old Arboretum or Silk Wood. For a more adventurous experience, climb the Treetop Walkway for stunning views of the autumn foliage.

And don't forget to check out the special events that take place at Westonbirt in November. The Enchanted Christmas trail is a must-do for families, with its twinkling lights, festive music, and magical atmosphere. There are also a number of other events to choose from, including guided tours, workshops, and children's activities.

Plan your visit today and experience the magic of autumn for yourself.
