Plan your visit
- To fuel you up for your Winkworth wander, stop off at the Arbor tea-room near the kiosk for hot lunches, homemade cakes, tea and coffee lunch.
- Toilets are available nearby, including baby-changing facilities and a disabled toilet, and there is a variety of pathways through the Arboretum with differing levels of accessibility.
- You're welcome to bring your dog, as long as you keep them on a lead; and groups are welcome - though it's advisable to call in advance during spring and autumn.
- And if you've got little people in tow, don't forget to stop off at our Natural Play Area and Tree Adventure.
