Postponed: Friends Visit to Colesbourne Arboretum

Friends Visit to Colesbourne Arboretum

** Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic the visit to Colesbourne Arboretum has been postponed. We hope to reschedule it for later in the year. Until further notice we will not process new ticket bookings **

Sir Henry Elwes has invited the Friends to visit his Arboretum at Colesbourne. The Arboretum was planted by his great-grandfather and during the past 45 years Sir Henry has been planting additional rare trees and there are over 300 varieties in the parkland. The Arboretum tour lasts 90-120 minutes and as the route through it is all on grass, sensible shoes are necessary. We will be using our own cars to visit Colesbourne, which is situated on the A435 mid-way between Cheltenham and Cirencester

The tour will be followed by drinks in the hospitality suite
