Partner gardens

There are so many great reasons to become a member. As a Friend of Westonbirt Arboretum you are supporting our charity, but you get a host of fantastic benefits.

You can visit Westonbirt Arboretum for free all year round (with a pre-booked time slot ticket and membership card on key dates), but adult members also get discounted entry at our partner gardens.* Where will you visit next? Take a look at our handy map to see what other great arboretums and botanical gardens you'll be passing on your travels...

These are subject to change beyond our control, therefore please check with the garden before you visit.

From 01 June 2019, free entry into Royal Botanical Gardens Kew & Wakehurst has been replaced with a two-for-one discount.

Therefore, Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members (named adult cardholders) will be able to gain free entry into Kew and Wakehurst Gardens when paying for an accompanying full priced adult ticket only, regardless of whether the accompanying visitor is a student, child or concession. Members must present their membership card to claim their two-for-one discount. Joint members who each hold a membership card are both entitled to bring in a second person on the two-for-one discount, with two paying adults. Single Westonbirt Arboretum members visiting Kew or Wakehurst gardens alone will be required to pay the adult entry fee. All additional children over four pay full child’s price at Kew Gardens (currently £5). At Wakehurst children under the age of 16 can enter for free. This offer is only available at the gates, therefore no pre-booking online.

Don't forget - it's always a good idea to give other gardens a ring before you visit. Occasionally, they hold special events and may have restrictions on partner garden visits during peak times. It's always safer to check!

Member of a partner garden looking to visit Westonbirt Arboretum?

The reciprocal arrangement we have with partner gardens is that only the named adult cardholder on the membership card can gain free entry to the arboretum when a time slot is booked. Any additional tickets would need to book standard admission ticketed time slots. On the booking page, you will see your partner garden ticket option to book a timeslot. On arrival, you will be asked to show your membership card or a letter about your membership.
