Welcome to Arley Arboretum

Let Your Imagination Run Free at Beautiful Arley Arboretum.

Arley Arboretum is situated on the banks of the magnificent River Severn at Upper Arley, within the stunning scenery of the Arley Estate, near the historic market town of Bewdley.

One of the oldest and most spectacular Arboreta in Britain, it is now open to the public thanks to the Trustees of the Roger and Douglas Turner Charitable Trust.

The Arboretum is home to over 300 species of trees and features our beautiful Laburnum arch, measuring 65 metres. Popular with nature lovers, families and walkers, Arley Arboretum is a magical place to visit throughout the year, with every season bringing a different breathtaking vista.


Covid-19 Update, Saturday 30 May 2020 

Arley Arboretum & Tea Room

Following the ongoing Government’s guidance in relation to safe management of venues and outdoor spaces, the trustees of the Roger & Douglas Turner Charitable Trust, in association with the management team of the Arley Estate, have taken the decision that Arley Arboretum & The Garden Tea Room will remain closed at this time. 

The Riverside Carpark remains closed

Please note that the Riverside Carpark in Upper Arley remains closed  out of respect for our village residents. The village of Upper Arley is a small community and cannot manage large visitor numbers safely at this time.

Eyemore Wood & Carpark

After a call from the local council this morning we have been asked to re-open Eyemore Wood Carpark,  to alleviate roadside parking on the approach to Trimpley Reservior and increase road safety.

Please do not park on the roadside

We would respectfully ask all visitors to the Arley Estate not to park on the roads or roadside verges. It causes access issues for emergency services and the vital local bus service. This simply isn’t fair to the key workers that are doing so much to protect and save our lives.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation at this time.

Moving forward

It is our intention to re-open Arley Arboretum sometime during July; an exact date for which is yet to be confirmed.

In the meantime, please be assured that we are taking the time to put in place an operational plan to enable us to re-open whilst maintaining the highest safety protocols (including social distancing) for our staff, volunteers and visitors. Their health and wellbeing remains our continued priority.

Ongoing review

We will continue each day to review the evolving situation, using the most up-to-date guidance from the government and the NHS, as it is issued to us. This information will inform our ongoing Covid-19 operational plan.

We will communicate any arising changes to our current plan via our website and social media channels, in a timely manner.

In the meantime, we remain committed to looking after the needs of our staff and the local community we serve.
