There are a number of interactive trails and quizzes designed for families to do together whilst exploring Westonbirt Arboretum.
Come and build, create, discover and imagine as you play in amongst the trees. These booklets have been developed in partnership with the Woodland Trust and provide a wealth of great ideas for families fun!
Use our map, directions and cryptic clue to find one special tree. There will be a different explorer challenge each month. Happy plant hunting!
Cryptic quiz trails
We have two different trails, one exploring in the Old Arboretum and the second in Silk Wood. Read the cryptic clues and find the answer on the map which will lead you to your next location.
Three courses are permanently set up in Silk Wood. Look for square metal plaques with an engraved letter and leaf shape (ideal for making rubbings) using a specially designed orienteering map. Further information is included in our orienteering pack
Discover trees, wildlife and woodlands throughout the year with these great activities to print at home.
This set of more challenging trails is in the process of being designed for children age 9+. Explore off path, use the tree labels to check you're in the right place and look closely at the trees themselves to discover the answers to the quiz.
