Discover the world on your doorstep on this introductory tour of the arboretum at Great Linford Manor Park!
Join our knowledgeable staff on a gentle walk of the arboretum and learn about the history and origins of the trees to be found there. An arboretum is like a museum or art gallery for trees – it shows off and celebrates unusual specimens. Started in the 1990s, Great Linford Manor Park’s arboretum showcases trees such as the Tulip Tree, Maidenhair Trees, Tibetan Cherries and Honey Locust. A similar exotic collection might have been planted in the formal gardens of Great Linford Manor in the 18th century.
The walk starts from Great Linford Memorial Hall car park and takes in the arboretum in the wider parkland. We offer a separate tree ID walk where you can learn about the more common tree species in the park.
Sensible, hard-wearing footwear and outdoor clothing is advised.
If you can no longer attend, please email email@example.com so we can offer your place to others.
