You can add value to your visits to Batsford by becoming a Friend of Batsford Arboretum. For £30 per person (£27 for concessions), you'll enjoy year round access to our beautiful arboretum. They also make great, unusual gifts for people who also love Batsford and include a number of benefits.
Please be aware on a very few occasions we may be forced to close the arboretum for health and safety reasons. We never do this unless absolutely essential and if we do, we will make sure our website is updated and information posted via Facebook and Twitter notifications.
