We have 3 different trails for kids of all ages and great fun for the whole family!
There is the Fairy Trail, the Dinosaur Trail, and the Mini Beasts Trail.

Fairy Trail

Our fairy trail takes you around the Arboretum and even guides the children through our maze to find a fairy in the center!
The fairy trail isn't just fun for kids but also teach them about the trees around them with question and answer sheets.
Bring your children for a lovely day out, and become Fairy Detectives!

Dinosaur Trail

DINOSAUR detectives are wanted at Arley Arboretum...
A 45-minute trail is waiting with clues to solve questions hidden all over the arboretum.
Detectives will need to answer questions such as, Where was triceratops found? Or - How long was Brachiosaurus?
The trail runs through some of the most beautiful and interesting spots in the arboretum with the chance to try out the maze on the way around.

The New Woodland Animal Trail

Come and explore to find all of the Woodland animals that live at Arley Arboretum.
Find all of the woodland animals around the arboretum and try and answer all of the questions!
This trail is aimed at children between 2-5 but is fun for the whole family!
This trail is around 30 minutes long, but there's no time limit! Come and make a day of it!
