Arley Arboretum


Arley Arboretum & Gardens is a hidden gem.

With a wide variety of natural environments to discover, paths that lead to nooks and crannies, towering trees and various ponds and pools, the Arboretum is a magical place for kids to explore.  An approved RHS partner garden there are wonderful features including a formal Italian Garden and fountains, a long laburnum arch and beautiful beds and borders.

Arley Arboretum & Gardens truly offer something for everyone to enjoy.

Delmar Adventure Play Trail:
Hidden away in the trees next to the maze our play trail is perfect for children aged 2-12 years. the adventure play area has been designed to be a healthy and physical outdoor challenge to help improve balance, strength, aerobic fitness, co-ordination, risk-taking and team work. Children must be supervised at all times in this area.

Check out our amazing hornbeam maze and journey to the end of it, to enjoy the views from the top of the castle in the middle of the maze.

There is always a trail to complete, from spotting fairy doors to finding badgers sets and everything in between! The trails are specifically designed to enhance your child’s experience by engaging them in various activities as you follow a carefully designed route around the grounds.  Better still, each trail is included* in the cost of your child’s admission.
