Westonbirt, The National Arboretum is a world famous and inspiring location for photography and filming.
Visitors are welcome to take photographs without charge within the grounds of the arboretum for personal (non-commercial) or educational use.
However, we do have some guidelines for commercial photography and filming:
Large commercial photography projects, photo shoots and commercial filming requires a permit and possible filming fee. The permit, charges and terms and conditions for commercial photography can be obtained from the Communications Manager, Katrina Podlewska, via Westonbirt Arboretum's Forestry Commission offices.
Press photographers, particularly those wishing to photograph special events and Forest Live concerts, must request permission via the Communications Manager ahead of their visit.
Independent photographers who are taking photographs for image banks, portfolios, small to medium scale commercial publications etc. do not need to apply for a permit but must pay the admission fee (or show Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum membership on arrival).
For more information please contact Communications Manager Katrina Podlewska by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01666 881207.
We ask that photographers respect Westonbirt Arboretum's grounds and other visitors.
