Walks at Anglesey Abbey

There's plenty to explore here at Anglesey Abbey, and there's something different to discover down every pathway. We're open from 9.30am all year round now too, meaning that you can start your day with a brisk early morning walk to set you up for the day ahead.

To help you plan your next walk, we've put together a few of our favorites. We have walks available both inside the gardens, and also around the estate boundaries, with a public footpath setting off from our carpark. 

Seasonal Highlight Walks

The path leading through the winter garden at Anglesey Abbey

30 minutes: The Winter Garden

The route through the Winter Garden towards the riverside walk, and back via the House is a fully accessible, gentle route if you've only got half an hour. It's also great for prams, pushchairs and wheelchairs. During the autumn and winter months, this route will take you past some of our most loved highlights, including the Dahlia Garden during September and October and the Winter Garden itself as the temperature drops. Look for the light blue route on the map.

60 minutes: The circular route

The circular route offers a slightly longer walk for those wanting to really stretch their legs. Head towards the front drive, and then down until you reach Jubilee Avenue. For those wanting to go that little bit further, keep going until you get to Coronation Avenue before turning around. During the autumn months, this is one of our favourite autumn colour highlights. The avenues transform into a magical sweep of yellows, oranges and reds - the perfect photo opportunity. This is the deep red route on the map.

90 minutes+: The Hoe Fen trail

If you really want to get some fresh air, the Hoe Fen trail is perfect. Taking in both sides of our wildlife discovery area, the Hoe Fen trail is our lengthiest walk, and can take anywhere from 90 minutes to a few hours to complete. We'd recommend bringing your walking boots for this one! Look out for the purple route on the map.
