Clem's view of the viewpoint, Queenswood Arboretum

Updated: Feb 9, 2023


Clemmie visited Queenswood viewpoint today in glorious sunshine with her PA Dee. The new gravel is perfect and wheelie friendly. The slopes up to the viewpoint and down the other side are a little slippy and this has been pointed out to Max the manager (who we are proud to say is an Accessible Herefordshire Accessibility Ambassador). This will be addressed.


There are a number of easy access paths with hard surfaces and no steps within the Arboretum. So, those with limited mobility or using electric mobility vehicles (EMVs) can enjoy a circular walk. There are two EMVs on site which can be booked in advance from the Visitor Centre.


There is an "accessible toilet" which is open between 9am and 4pm everyday except Christmas Day. This toilet also contains baby changing facilities.


Parking - We would recommend registering for up to a year for freedom to visit at any time without charge. This is valid for Herefordshire Council Blue Badge holders only and is available from the Visitor Centre.


Full Visitor Centre opening times:

10am-4pm: Every day during Herefordshire school holidays, at weekends and on bank holidays

10:30-3:30pm: On weekdays outside of Herefordshire school holidays

Easy access wins Tip 1

Clear Signage: Ensure that signs directing to accessible entrances, toilets, and parking spaces are clear, visible, and easy to understand and at a position a wheelchair user can read the sign.
