This unassuming place is a haven in the Surrey countryside, Near Godalming, it offers gently weaving paths through beautiful trees, chirruping birds and fluttering butterflies. On a sunny summer's day, it is calming and scenic: great views across the gentle undulations from the viewing platform...More

Having only previously visited Winkworth Arboretum during the bluebell flowering season it was nice to revisit when the Arboretum was a lot less busy. There are some lovely walks and it would take hours to explore them all. Some paths are a bit steep so...More

The paths are in need of maintenance, not for the infirm and certainly not easy for pushchair or mobility scooters. Asked at the desk if there was anything of special interest,to be told no,it's past,I came thinking we would see majestic unusual trees. The boathouse...More

We've been to Winkworth Arboretum 3 times (twice in Spring, once in Autumn) and it's a definite family favourite. In Spring, the azaleas and bluebells are spectacular, while the trees are a kaleidoscope of colours come Autumn time. There are several different areas to explore...More

Spent a lovely afternoon here in February. Great place to stroll around and see what is in flower. Staff very helpful and direct you to the location of what is in bloom. Challenging for those who have difficulty with mobility.

We visited this place during the afternoon. It is an arborteum - meaning full of trees - and there are some lovely and beautiful ones at that ! Because this place belongs to the National Trust, there is a price to pay (£8 for adults),...More

That's a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, without a reference to the speed of walking. I remember it as about 500m, so less than 5 minutes walking for me walking quickly or 10 minutes at a dawdle looking... More

All public footpaths should allow free access even when they pass through payable attractions. But if you enter on that basis you cannot deviate off the path.
