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 until Sunday 3 September 2023, 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 a brand-new summer play trail, Gruffalo sculptures and the interactive Zog activity trail to keep curious visitors busy.

Look out for the free family activity days throughout the school holidays, too, where kids can create their own mythical creatures or try Westonbirt's woodland honey taste test.

With something new to discover each week, activities take place at the Silk Wood Barn on Saturdays and Sundays and inside the Great Oak Hall from Tuesday to Thursday.

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.
