There are no walls, glasshouses or straight lines at the Arboretum. This is almost as if it were designed to be the opposite to the formality of the Botanic Garden in the city centre.
In May and June the Arboretum is alive with azaleas and rhododendrons and in October the Japanese maples can enliven even the dullest day. In spring there is a quintessentially English 10-acre woodland and in summer a 37-acre meadow full of wild flowers. The arboretum is a charming place to spend a day at any time of year.
