The Treetop Walkway is 200 metres long and towers 18 metres above the ground, enabling visitors a rare insight into the complex ecosystem of the forest canopy, a world teeming with birds and insects, lichens and fungi.
Made from over 400 tonnes of weathered steel, the rusted steel columns blend in with the natural environment.
At ground level sculptures carved from tree trunks illustrate microscopic elements of trees to explain how trees grow. A path leads visitors below ground to the Rhizotron, an underground lab constructed to study the soil.
The walkway’s structure is inspired by the Fibonacci numerical sequence, frequently found in nature's growth patterns.
Walk through the branches of sweet chestnut, Castanea sativa, beech, Fagus sylvatica, horse chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum and different oak species, Quercus.
Spring is arguably the best time to experience the view from the Treetop Walkway. The Gardens are starting to fill with colour while the leaves of many of the trees have not yet appeared to hide the view
