Visitor services

Your visit to Westonbirt Arboretum begins and ends with our fantastic Visitor Services team - from getting you in through the gates to waving you goodbye at the end of the day.

This dedicated team are always on hand to help you throughout your visit, to make sure you have a wonderful and safe day. Membership and donations provide funds that go towards everything from the maintenance of paths, to the vehicles that allow the visitor services team to move around quickly and efficiently - essential, as they are first to hand in an emergency.

Your support helps to pay for these essentials, including mobility scooters, which help less mobile visitors get around and explore the arboretum, and visitor maps, which help everyone to find their way.

There are so many hidden costs in ensuring you have a great visit. Thanks to our members and supporters, essential visitor services can always be provided for.

“Without the Friends we wouldn’t have been able to maintain the scooters and wheelchairs and let our visitors borrow them for free. Not to mention play area maintenance, recycling and cleaning, furniture and radios!”

Caring for the trees and ensuring our visitors have the best experience requires a lot of work. You can contribute by making a general donation.
