Explore the arboretum with Simon Toomer who'll be accompanying you as you discover some of what this magical place has to offer. You'll also hear from Head Gardener Graham Alderton, who has some handy tips for recognising the many trees that you’ll find along the way… because it’s the trees that are the real stars of the show here - no matter what time of year you’re visiting!

Winkworth Arboretum is home to around six thousand trees with about a thousand different species. From the start, its creator, Dr Wilfrid Fox, was just as interested in the arrangement of his trees from a visual point of view as in their botanical credentials.
