Autumn colour highlights
As the sun begins to sink lower in the sky & the days shorten rich autumnal colours breakout throughout the gardens. Here's a guide to some of our favourite places for autumn colour.
The hormbeams which form Jubilee Avenue were planted in 1977 to mark the Silver Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth.
The Riverside Walk
The trees of either side of Quy Water provide a rich burst of colour. On still days you get perfect reflections in the water.
The magnificent Temple is set against a colourful amphitheatre of beech, alder & sycamores.
The creation of Pilgrims' Lawn was the last area of the garden designed by Lord Fairhaven - sadly he did not live to see it in all its glory.
Strong yellow & purple colouring predominates, particularly in autumn.
Drifts of delicate pink cyclamen carpet the understorey as you walk through the trees from the Winter Garden to Lode Mill - a sight not to be missed.
