A fun day out for all the family with stalls, stories, crafts and more.  Author and apple expert Dr Barrie Juniper will be bringing apples from his Wytham orchard for people to taste.

Visitors should be aware of uneven surfaces and varying light levels, as well as narrow paths in some of the woodland areas. The majority of the arboretum is accessible for intrepid manual wheelchair users or, for a more relaxed visit, those with help from friends and family; mapped wheelchair paths provide an easier route. There are no steps within the arboretum, but there are a couple of steep hills.

The car park is mostly packed earth with underlying plastic mesh, although cars are parked on gravel. There are several blue badge spaces on the left when you go in. If these are full, there is plenty of space in the rest of the car park, although you will have to cross more gravel to get back to the arboretum, and the car park surfacing can be uneven.

There are accessible toilets in the education centre.
