"Great Autumn Colours"

"This was our first visit to the Arboretum and we hope to visit again at a different time of year when next in the area. The Italian garden was lovely with an impressive fountain. There was some work going on in the area but it did not detract from our visit. The guide leaflet is very good and shows you the pathways and where to find the most important trees. You can walk away from the paths also to see all the parts of the arboretum. There were no steam trains running on the day of our visit but the views from the Severn View point were great. We also visited the church. The autumn colours were beautiful and we would recommend a visit to the arboretum and church. We enjoyed our day there."
