Pre-booked tickets only at the Arboretum

Due to an unprecedented number of visitors at the Arboretum this autumn, we will be taking pre-booked tickets only for the time being (this does not apply to the Garden). All online ticket bookings are subject to a £1 booking fee which pays for the online booking system administration and technology. For this we do apologise, and thank you for your continued support of the Friends of Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum. Book your tickets here


Additional Benefits

Friends also enjoy 10% off in our Gift Shop and a Summer Party exclusively for Friends and their families.
