Saturday 15th April 2017

Saturday 2nd September 2017

Times: 10am - 4pm

Free Entry to Fair

Welcome to this exciting and beautiful venue for our North Worcestershire / South Shropshire Plant Hunters' Fair. 

Bodenham Arboretum is situated in the most scenic and idyllic corner of Worcestershire.  We are really excited about this lovely haven of peace and tranquility as a setting for our prestigious event in the area.

From the mile-long approach drive to the heart of this 156 acre arboretum the beauty of the setting just keeps on unfolding. 

The arboretum is a garden of trees and shrubs with over 3000 species from all over the world. There are several miles of pathways wandering through the landscape of trees, pools, meadows and farmland. Visitors can explore the working farm with its sheep, lambs, cattle and rare breed poultry. 

The visitor centre and lakeside restaurant are house in an award winning environmentally sensitive building and serve a wide variety of home cooked meals and light refreshments including meats from the farm. Why not enjoy the spring weather and take your tea on the terrace overlooking the main pool.
