The Visitor Centre
The focal point of the Arboretum is the Visitor Centre which has free access and parking for 200 cars and also two specific coach spaces.
Inside the Visitor Centre you will find the restaurant, a gift shop and toilets.
Outside on the terrace you will find plenty of chairs and tables to sit and relax by the Big Pool where the ducks and fish will come to see you.
4000 tons of earth was removed from the hillside to accommodate the building. The roof is insulated with soil and then grassed over to blend back into the hillside, making the whole building as unobtrusive as possible.
