The Arboretum has 85 acres of woodland walks. It is one of the largest collections of trees and shrubs in the north of England, and holds three National Collections - ash, lime and walnut.

Thorp Perrow has something to offer all year round. Thousands of naturalised daffodils in the spring, followed with blossom, carpets of bluebells and bold drifts of wild flowers. Later in the year the autumn foliage provides dramatic effects and stunning colours.

The Falcons of ThorpPerrow is a captive breeding and conservation centre. There are three informative and entertaining flying demonstrations daily throughout the season giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about birds of prey, with the enjoyment of hands-on experience for all the family.

Tearoom, Picnic Area, Plant Centre, Children's Play Area, Nature Station, Tree and Nature Trails and Children's Trails. Many event days throughout the year.
