Book a tour with our Head Gardener Mark

Group Tours

If your visiting Arley Arboretum and Gardens in a group larger than 20 people, you will benefit from a reduction in our entrance fees.

One of the best ways to see the Arboretum is to have a tour from our head gardener Mark. With his vast knowledge of the plants and trees the Arboretum has to offer, you will learn even more about what Arley Arboretum has to offer.

At just £2 extra per person it is a great way to learn that little bit more. The tours last for approximately 90 minutes and can be arranged to fit in with the structure of your groups day out. Drinks and food deals are also available on request.

For bookings please contact us at the estate office, either by phone or email.

School Groups

We are lucky to have a large number of schools visit Arley every year, with the children doing everything from participating in pond dipping, to orienteering for the older children later in the year.

The facilities on offer are available to everyone year round and can be adapted to the individual schools needs. 

Please call the office on 01299 861368 to discuss your requirements.


“Day out with a party of Stroke survivors and carers”

'We visited the Arboretum with a party of 20. We had a variety of disabilities and the venue was suitable for all levels of activity. We couldn't have been better looked after. Most of us had a coffee sitting outside in the gorgeous sunshine and then wandered around the blossom filled Arboretum. It was a delight. The weather helped but we didn't receive a moan from any one which has to a first... The management were keen to offer us concessions for those with disabilities and this was a welcome bonus... '
