Whipsnade Tree Cathedral


The Tree Cathedral combines a range of different varieties of trees and shrubs laid out to the plan of a cathedral. There is a nave, transepts, chancel, cloisters and four chapels and an outer cloister walk enclosing a wide area with a dew pond as its focal point. The area is stile-free and gradient-free. N.B. Parts of the walk can become muddy especially after heavy rain, so strong waterproof footwear is recommended. Take care where conditions are rough and do let someone know where you are going. Please be aware that much of the walk may be unsuitable for wheelchairs and difficult for pushchairs.

Start/Finish Point: Start from the car park.
