What do other visitors say?

Hi, Our Diss U3A Bird group is hoping to visit Lynford Arboretum in January and I'd like to know where the nearest toilets are - so we can use them before and after! Also, how much is parking?

Any other things we should know about our visit eg accessibility, species around then etc.

There is a portaloo near the start of the dog agility trail in the wild area further down the entrance track on the left hand side. Parking is in the Lynford Water car park on the left opposite the Arboretum entrance. Parking is free. There is a bird hide at Lynford Water and lakes for additional bird spotting opportunities. At this time of year the hawfinches may be around at the Arboretum. Happy bird spotting and enjoy the day.
