This spectacularly gorgeous new treetop walkway takes the form of a 300-meter path at the UK's Westonbirt Arboretum, and is designed to make it easier than ever for visitors to immerse themselves in the tree canopy and enjoy a view of the surrounding landscape that would simply be impossible otherwise.

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, the treetop walkway was designed using special algorithms that allow for a continuous visual flow of the walkway components while not interfering with trees in a detrimental manner. The walkway was commissioned by the UK's Forestry Commission, which wanted to find a new way to engage with visitors to the Westonbirth Arboretum.

Ultimately, this treetop walkway offers visitors a new and unique perspective, allowing them to appreciate their natural surroundings better.
