BATSFORD Arboretum is offering local people big discount this month to mark English Tourism Week.

Anyone with a GL56 postcode can enjoy a 10 per cent discount off the entry price for five days from Monday, March 31 to Friday, April 4.

To get discounted entry to the 56 acre arboretum, near Moreton, they just need to produce a utility bill or other proof of their address.

English Tourism Week is a week-long celebration showcasing the quality and vibrancy of this country’s visitor experiences.

Organised by Visit England, it will also raise awareness about the importance of tourism to the visitor economy.

Susie Hunt, PR and Marketing Manager, said the initiative was a great for Batsford to get involved in such a positive and high profile campaign – particularly after a year of challenging weather.

"Now more than ever it’s vital for people to support local attractions, and we hope they’ll take advantage of our special offer and either visit Batsford for the first time – or revisit us during this special week," she said.

"This is a wonderful time of year to visit the arboretum – which should be home to a host of daffodils and the start of blossom time from the magnolias and Japanese flowering cherries".
