We would like to welcome you to have a stroll in our beautiful grounds here at West Lodge Park.
We have the National collections of Hornbeams (Carpinus betulus cv) and Swamp Cypress (Taxodium distichum) as well as over 800 species of trees from around the world. The 35 acres surrounding the hotel form part of the Enfield Chase, an oasis of open space, wonderful views and peace and quiet within the M25.
The Beale Arboretum
The Beale Arboretum was established by Edward Beale in 1963 with help from Frank Knight, Director of RHS Wisley and Derek Honour, Trees Consultant for the GLC.
