Spring walks at Winkworth Arboretum

Winkworth Arboretum, Surrey

Exult in the longer, lighter days on a spring walk at Winkworth. From the smallest primrose to the tallest magnolia, you'll discover a different woodland delight on every visit.

Nestled on a hillside in the heart of the Surrey Hills, the arboretum is the perfect spot for a walk to refresh your senses. With a mixture of level walkways and challenging hills, there's a route for everyone; dogs on leads are welcome, and a disabled car park at the bottom of the Arboretum provides access to the meadow and lakeside walk.

Winkworth to Oakhurst trail

If you're looking for a longer walk, dig out your walking boots and give our Winkworth to Oakhurst trail a go. Totalling 2.5 miles, this walk gently meanders through the Surrey countrydie allowing you to stop at points of interest along the way.

Tree Adventure 

If you've got little ones with you, don't forget to stop off at our Tree Adventure on the way, featuring a rope tunnel, fireman's pole and even a climbing wall! 

Tasty treats

When you've finished your walk, head to the tea-room near the kiosk for a warming drink and a slice of homemade cake, baked fresh daily. Every bite of cake or slurp of tea helps us preserve and protect Winkworth's historic landscape for years to come.
