What's on

There's always lots to see and do, from family fun to creative adult workshops.

Find out what's on over the next few months, including autumn themed guided walks of the garden and woods, or try your hand at one of our garden photography workshops.

There's lots to do at half term too with our spooky trail for kids.

Autumnal colour

Wander under the golden canopy of Lime Avenue and view the delicious red and gold tones of trees in the Arboretum putting on a fantastic firework display of foliage. The heather garden provides a carpet of colour and for scent you can’t go wrong with the burnt toffee smells of our Katsura tree. Look out for the unusual pink seed pods on the Magnolia with bright orange seeds.

Great British Walk

To celebrate the Great British Walk this year we have a variety of walks throughout September and October. A great way of experiencing the wonderful changing colours of autumn in our garden and woods. Download our self-guided map of the garden or woods to find a special place in autumn or join one of our regular guided walks.
