Hascombe Road, Godalming, Surrey, GU8 4AD

Far more than just a walk in the woods. A beautiful collection of trees and plants set in a dramatic hillside location offering peace and tranquillity, a masterpiece of planting surrounding a magnificent lake and wetland area. The National Trust's only arboretum, Winkworth is a wonderful collection of trees and plants uniquely set in over 100 acres of dramatic Surrey countryside offering stunning views whatever the season. Created by Dr Wilfrid Fox in the early part of the 20th century the dramatic hillside location provides the perfect “canvas” for what he described as using plants “to paint a picture”. The extraordinary planting combinations will immerse you in texture, colour and fragrance that will inspire you. We look forward to welcoming you to Winkworth Arboretum.
