Our Annual Pass – Great Value!


Our Annual Pass is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. It covers normal entrance fees for the Arboretum, Trails and events within the Arboretum grounds where it states ‘standard/normal Arboretum Admission fees apply.’ Where events are ticketed / booking is required you will have to have to pay the stated fees.

Purchase of an Annual Pass also includes entrance to these other visitor attractions:

The Living Rain Forest in Berkshire
Batsford Arboretum in Gloucestershire

You can visit them as many times as you wish within the year.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens – with effect from 1st October 2020 Birmingham Botanical Gardens will no longer feature as an attraction where Bodenham Arboretum Annual Pass Holders are able to gain free admission. We appreciate that this will disappoint many of our Annual Pass Holders, however the complexity of Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ levels of membership now means that a ‘like for like’ reciprocal arrangement for free admission is no longer tenable. Similarly, members of Birmingham Botanical Gardens will have to pay full admission fees when visiting Bodenham Arboretum with effect from 1st October.


If you have a Bodenham Arboretum Family ticket, children will still have to pay entrance to the above Gardens.

If you have Membership of any of the above Gardens concessions which may be granted by those Gardens are not applicable for Admission to Bodenham Arboretum.
