About Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum

Queenswood is a fragment of a vast ancient wood that once stretched to the Welsh borders and beyond. Though it was clear-felled in the First World War, the regenerated woodland now teems with wildlife.
A collection of trees from around the world was begun at Queenswood in 1953. This Arboretum now covers 47 acres and is a beautiful ornamental woodland, particularly famed for its autumn colour.

The site offers a wonderful place to hold a meeting or event with the woodland backdrop providing a tranquil setting that can be explored by attendees in a lunch break or as part of the experience.

In the Arboretum, the surfaced paths provide easy walking year-round while the more adventurous may wish to explore the native woodland lying to the north and south of the central Arboretum.
