Arley Arboretum & Gardens

Saturday 19th May - NEW DATE

Times: 10am- 5pm

Gardens, arboretum and plant fair: £2.50

Free parking

A new date and month for our wonderful plant fair at this magical place. It's our first time here in May and we're looking forward to the blossom, flowering shrubs and spring bulbs.

We fell in love with Arley Arboretum on our first visit - the peace enfolds you and scenery enthralls you .

Go back in time and watch the Severn Valley Railway trains steam across the hill from one of the magnificent signposted walks. The garden provides the ideal day out for you and your family, a dream escape from the bustle of everyday life. The Arboretum offers plenty to do for all ages from the Italian garden with its fountain for the adults, to the Dinosaur and Fairy Trails and maze for the young ones.

Add to this a spring plant fair and we've the perfect day out for plant lovers.

A wonderful new fountain forms the centrepiece of the Italian Garden designed and manufactured in Italy. The spectacular centre jet reaches a height of 18 feet and is surrounded by smaller jets. The centre jet is operational four times a day, and the smaller jets run all day. Don't worry if you miss the centre jet though - there is a slot machine that for 50p will operate the centre jet on demand for three minutes.

Did you know? We also have plant fairs at the nearby Bodenham Arboretum twice a year - click here for details
