From Our Editors

Yorkshire Arboretum encompasses 120 acres of lakes and parkland containing over 6,000 trees from around the world. Visitors to the site can trek around the grounds on a number of trails and admire the greenery within the arboretum's botanical collection. These strolls can be accompanied by a guide at select times to enhance guests' knowledge of the vegetation and history of the woodland. A number of activities for children, including seed collecting, minibeast identification and bark rubbing, are available alongside a playground. Refreshments are on offer at the venue's cafe, which can be hired out for events such as weddings and private parties. Meanwhile, the on-site gift shop stocks souvenirs for friends and loved ones.

There were plenty of things for kids to do, including activity trails. We went mid- September, which was a nice time to visit as some of the leaves were changing colour, very pretty.

Lovely peaceful setting. on a sunny day it's a beautiful walk with some glorious views over the surrounding countryside. Could do with a few more benches to sit and admire the scenery .

A good place to spend a few hours or in our case only one to fit in with hospital appointments but we had a good workout with our Nordic poles! Will go again when things are looking more positive.

Lovely to be able to take the dog with you in this beautiful arboretum. Very pleasant man on the desk and food and drink sensibly priced. Nice to see families with young children.

The walking paths are quite lumpy and gritty...which makes walking difficult ..unless you have a proper sturdy walking shoe...not good for a nice meander.No good for wheelchairs too.

Interesting to be in wonderful parkland. Take a picnic as the cafe is very slow and expensive. 1/2 and hour to wait for a bacon sandwich and only 5 others before me. Did without.
