A Historic Natural Space: The Nottingham Arboretum

Today I want to tell you all about our blissful adventure to the Nottingham Arboretum

A historic, beautifully maintained park that is home to an important collection of over 800 trees, some of which are from the original collection planted in the 19th century, award winning Nottingham Arboretum is Nottingham’s oldest public park and the closest park to the city centre, opened on 11 May 1852.” [source]

The Arboretum makes for a beautiful escape from the city, and a chance to breathe in a stunning array of natural beauty. A perfect spot for a picnic, or enjoy an ice-cream from the little on-site cafe. Be sure to stop by the aviary for a chance to spot some adorable little finches, budgies, and even a few parrots. The aviary overlooks an elegant little duckpond, with a charming variety of local waterbirds to feed seeds to… and be sure to save some for the countless grey squirrels running around the trees above you.

Want to visit The Nottingham Arboretum? It’s open daily from 8am-8pm, and you can find your way here… have a lovely time! and be sure to let me know in the comments all about your adventure!
