Enjoy autumn jewels with friends and family

Autumn jewels

The days may get chillier in autumn, but our places across the south east will be bursting with colour. Discover bright borders and vegetable gardens bathed in soft autumn light. What about a walk among hedgerows and woods full of ruby berries and golden foliage?

Our historic houses are full of jewels too. There's richly decorated rooms like the Tapestry Room at Osterley. Or come and learn about colourful characters from the past, like the milkmaid who married the lord of the manor at Uppark.

Rich autumn colour on a Great British Walk

Enjoy a Great British Walk

Burnt oranges, russet reds, deep purples and buttery yellows, we’re celebrating the Great British Walk with a hand-picked selection of the very best places to enjoy autumn’s rich colour palette. They're perfect for a misty morning or crisp sunny afternoon.

You can rowan berries ripening from orange to crimson in the countryside at Hindhead in Surrey. Or why not take in the flaming foliage at Petworth House and Park in West Sussex in the landscapes that inspired the art of Turner?
