Visited the tree cathedral for about the 30th time, for a lovely walk with my partner and to take some photos of the nave and chapels. There are also some really good furniture and statues made from wood dotted around the whole place. part of the national trust for parking so as members it's free too.

Nice area for a short walk, wellies needed if wet, quite a small car parking area. My nephew got married there plenty of space that sort of thing. Lovely walk in the summer on a very hot day, lots of shade amongst the trees.

The tree cathedral is an amazing tranquil place with a very special atmosphere. Even after several previous visits I still love to come back.

The area is good for walking, a little muddy in winter. Trees are interesting and a history area. Worth a visit. A nice area to walk around in the spring or summer

Its well laid out so that you should be able to see everything on a circuitous route. It could do with a work-sheet or similar to keep the children occupied looking for things but spotting the different trees etc was enough to keep them entertained. It's laid out in areas of tree types, that even I found educational.

We were on a circular walk from the Dunstable Downs that took in the Cathedral.It is a great concept - there is free parking on site and a map giving you an outline of the various parts. It only takes a few minutes to walk around - but I did find it quite beautiful and very different. Probably something I... More

I loved our visit to the Tree Cathedral. It was so peaceful and so clean and beautifully cared for. Plenty of information boards too to describe what you are looking at and the history behind the cathedral. All in all a great visit.

I've driven passed the sign for the Tree Cathedral for many years - how interesting could a bunch of trees be anyway. Finally I made the trip. If you go at the right time of year (spring, when the trees are in new leaf and flower) its stunning. The thought behind it is incredible but you do need a map... More
