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!

“Tranquil and beautiful”

"We decided to visit here for the first time today and will definitely return. Beautiful tranquil setting amongst trees and flowers and lovely walks. We were impressed with the fountain that was timed to get bigger at certain times of the day, or when you put 50p in the box. Amazing!! There were chickens to look at, an orchard, lakes, lovely tea room where you could sit outside as well as in. We loved the maze, and there was a play area for children. We watched the Severn Valley train go past in the distance. We have enjoyed our afternoon here."
