Autumn at Arley

The ever changing colours of the season makes Autumn one of the most beautiful and popular times of the year to visit Arley Arboretum.

With our amazing collection of Acers as a focal point, the Arboretum comes alive with fiery rich colours of autumn leaves.


Theres new activities for kids too!

Get those wellies on for some Pond Dipping! Identify, explore and learn about all the mini beasts that crawl, fly and hop around the Arboretum pond!

Autumn's coming early this year!

What's in Bloom

The Hydrangeas by the car park are in full bloom. They are beautiful!

The Lime trees, Oak trees, and Acer trees are all about to turn into warm autumn colours. Can't wait until the whole arboretum is full of fiery colours! More info on Acers!

The gardeners say that autumn may come early this year and may be coming as early as mid september! so keep your eyes peeled!

"My wife and I were fortunate to visit during good weather (it had been constantly raining previously). A beautiful location with two different walks both of which are quite easy and take approximately 1 hour. If you time the walk correctly you will see the Severn Valley steam train pass in the valley below. There is a small play area for the children and also a fairy trail where they have to find the fairies and their respective tree names."
