Your breathtaking bird’s-eye view of Westonbirt’s wonderful trees!
The STIHL Treetop Walkway offers you spectacular views across the arboretum landscape. Access to the walkway is included in the cost of admission.
Accessible to all
The main walkway is step-free, making it accessible to visitors on foot, using mobility scooters, wheelchairs and pushchairs and to those with dogs on leads. It is 300 metres long and gradually rises on gentle inclines to a height of 13 metres.
Experience stunning new views and discover more about Westonbirt’s world-renowned collection of 15,000 trees from high above the ground.
There are seven interactive hotspots to give visitors of all ages the chance to get up-close with nature and learn more about the fascinating world of trees.
You’ll also get a glimpse of traditional woodland management, as the walkway ends in the heart of Silk Wood – home to coppice workers and charcoal burning!
The 300 metre route follows a serpentine path through the trees and along the contours of the site, into the leafy canopy.
Each season of the year will reveal new views and new experiences of trees and nature.
Fun-seekers will find exhilarating features along the way, though these can be bypassed if you’re seeking a more serene experience!

For the enjoyment of all…
We ask that children dismount scooters and bikes before taking to the walkway, and that dogs are kept on leads.
The STIHL Treetop Walkway is a highly anticipated addition to what we offer at Westonbirt, and it is expected that weekends will be particularly busy.
