One of Gloucestershire's most popular family attractions, Westonbirt Arboretum near Tetbury, is helping parents to save some pennies while the children are off school – by scrapping admission fees for smaller visitors during the summer holidays!

Kids can enter the magical tree garden for FREE from Saturday 23 July to Sunday 4 September 2022, with the offer valid for children up to the age of 18.

Little ones can run wild and explore trees from all over the world, with plenty of open space to kick a ball around – as well as natural play trails, Gruffalo sculptures and the interactive Superworm activity trail to keep curious visitors busy.

The offer includes the August bank holiday weekend, when pre-booking is essential and the inaugural Wild Wonder at Westonbirt children's book festival is taking place. Although ticket prices for the workshops and events still apply.

Tickets to Westonbirt Arboretum usually cost £4 per child, meaning more money to splash on souvenirs or ice cream from the grab-and-go kiosk.
