About Thorp Perrow Arboretum

Explore acres of stunning woodland, run wild and free in our adventure play area or meet exotic birds and animals, no two visits to Thorp Perrow Arboretum are the same! Covering 100 acres, Thorp Perrow Arboretum boasts one of the largest collections of shrubs and trees in the North of England, including 5 National Collections. The Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre offers fascinating flying demonstrations and the chance to meet mammals such as meerkats, wallabies, pygmy goats and Shetland sheep

What style of garden is Thorp Perrow Arboretum?

Thorp Perrow is the most important Arboretum in the North of England and is unique to Britain, if not Europe, in that it was the creation of one man, Colonel Sir Leonard Ropner (1895-1977). His son, Sir John Ropner (1937-2016) and his wife, Niki, then went onto develop the Arboretum into the visitor attraction you see today. Sir Henry Ropner and his family are the current custodians.

What can guests enjoy at Thorp Perrow Arboretum?

The packed diary of events offers something for everyone, from seasonally-themed trails and activity weekends, open-air tribute band concerts, to expert-led tours and walks. The licensed tearoom serves a delicious range of locally-produced seasonal lunches and a mouth-watering selection of cakes and sweet treats. Kids have their own dedicated menu, perfect for re-fuelling after running wild and free in the adventure play area.

Ten of the Best Autumnal Gardens by Veronica Peerless

"This Yorkshire arboretum is home to some of the largest and most unusual trees and shrubs in Britain. Many of them take on spectacular hues in autumn, and the three ‘autumn bays’ are especially worth a visit. You can also take part in ‘fungus forays’ – guided tours that will show you which mushrooms are edible and which ones to avoid."

Fifteen of the Best Spring Gardens by Veronica Peerless

"The grounds of Thorp Perrow are home to one of the most spectacular displays of daffodils you’re ever likely to see; it includes many old and unusual varieties. Thorp Perrow is an arboretum that’s home to trees from around the world, and many of them are smothered in blossom in spring. The carpets of bluebells is quite a sight, too."
