Under one Japanese-style curving roof, the visitor centre brings together a garden centre, gift shop, café/restaurant and garden terrace (with views over Batsford’s Victorian walled garden to the Cotswold landscape beyond).
Groups are invited to view the new developments and take part in an exclusive tour of the arboretum gardens in the company of a member of staff or Batsford Foundation Trustee. During 2011, groups will receive a discounted price per person for the general tour, and the guided tour of the arboretum will be free.
