Entry numbers should be limited and publicised. It is unreasonable to wait as long as some visitors indicate. When I came it was great, but the catering facilities were woefully inadequate. There were portable eating places which could have been used but we're closed. You should anticipate crowds at half term and in good weather and limit access. Cars queueing for miles has serious implications.

Old Arboretum was beautiful in the sunshine. Kids had a great time jumping in leaves and finding the Gruffalo. The play area was great but the cafe was disappointing. So poorly managed at peak season the queue was not moving. Deciding to restock the crisps rather than serve the customers meant we gave up and got a cup of tea at the mobile vans instead and for less money.

We visited today, Saturday 31st October. We were concerned when we read of the queues to get in last week, but decided to take a chance. Glad we did. No queue at all when we arrived at 11.15am either for the car park or entry tickets, despite being very busy - car park looked full when we left. Autumn colours were awesome. Well signed walks and a lot of people who all seemed to be having a good time. We'll be back in the spring.
