Visit Harcourt Arboretum


Essential work is being carried out by the National Grid on the pylons located at the Arboretum, commencing March 2022. Please take note of the safety notices on site when visiting.

Occasionally there are closures to parts of our site for general maintenance, education groups, and events. Please call our office in advance of your visit if you would like to check a specific date, or click here to see a list of scheduled closures.

Booking Information

You can buy a ticket on the door on the day of your visit. We recommend that you pre-book online during busy periods, particularly if travelling by car as we have limited parking spaces. Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferrable; we cannot amend these over the phone, so please take care when selecting the day and time. You can explore the Arboretum virtually with our virtual visit.

Insight Tours will continue from Wednesday, 2nd March. Everyone is welcome to join these free tours on the first Wednesday of every month.

They run from 1.30pm to 3pm and no fee or booking is required for the Insight Tours, just turn up.
