The spectacular colours as seen in our photograph of the Acer Glade attract over three hundred thousand visitors from all over the world each year. The Arboretum (from the Latin word arbor, for tree) is a focus for conservation and research and does a great deal of educational work with regular class visits for school children.

This year an added attraction will be the Westonbirt Festival of Gardens which is sure to become an annual event.

When Robert Holford, a millionaire who made his fortune by piping clean drinking water into London, started his collection one hundred and eighty two years ago, he could have had little idea of how important his collection would become.
