Opening times and prices

As a charity, we rely on the generosity of our visitors, Friends, donors and funding bodies. Every time you take a walk in the Arboretum, enjoy a delicious lunch in our Orchard Kitchen or become a Friend, you are helping us to fulfil this mission.

Dogs are very much welcome at Markshall. Please read our Doggy Code of Conduct so everyone can enjoy their visit. Visit our Barkshall Estate page to find out more, including what we do with all the poo!
