Autumn at Westonbirt Arboretum

My lovely sister Sarah and her husband Max came to visit us recently and we thought this would be a great opportunity to finally visit Westonbirt Arboretum. I've lived in the Cotswolds for nearly ten years and have been wanting to visit for a long time. It was a perfect autumnal Saturday; clear skies, a little bit chilly and lovely sunshine.

As you might imagine at this time of year, it was very busy, with lots of people enjoying the good weather and amazing scenery. I noticed on the Westonbirt Arboretum Facebook page the day after our visit that the car park kept needing to be shut and people turned away, as it was so busy! Near the main entrance is a treetop walk, which was a lovely start and a great way to take in the amazing views. I'd like to think that this will now be an annual autumnal trip to the arboretum and look forward to returning.
