Batsford Arboretum in Moreton-in-Marsh boasts 56 acres of stunning parkland offering one of the finest botanical collections in the country, with around 1,300 different species of trees, shrubs and bamboo waiting to be discovered.

The family-friendly Cotswold attraction is an inspiring place to visit throughout all four seasons, whether you want to see blankets of snowdrops and beautiful Japanese cherry blossom in spring, or the impressive displays of autumn colour, with the destination open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day.

The arboretum is run by The Batsford Foundation, a charitable trust which aims to promote conservation and advance public knowledge of gardens, arboreta and historic landscapes, while its unique tree and shrub collection, and plethora of flora and fauna, make it paradise for nature lovers of all ages.

Visitors can wander the beautiful grounds to discover more about the history of the plant and tree species, with collections covering a wide variety of plants from around the world, with an emphasis on the Far East.

The on-site Garden Terrace Café is perfect for locally sourced, seasonal lunches and afternoon teas, offering a great place for relaxing with friends. The pretty terrace is ideal for soaking up some sun during the warmer months, while appreciating views of the plant centre.

Visitors can also expect a diverse annual programme of events, spanning alfresco theatre productions and themed trails for children, to photography workshops, providing plenty to entertain during a day out at Batsford.
