Winter walking at Basildon Park

Stark tree on the Basildon Park estate

Winter at Basildon Park is a beautiful time of the year and perfect for a parkland walk. The winter trees open up new views of the garden and house, whilst spotting snowdrops is a favourite activity during this season.

Winter views of the house

The winter trees offer a new perspective of the parkland, providing beautiful views back to the house.

One of the favourite waymarked walks is the green walk that ends with stunning views across the fields to the house.

For those of you feeling more energetic, wrap up warm and try the orange walk which takes you on a 3 mile walk around the boundary of the parkland. This route includes the oldest trees at Basildon and takes you round the back of the house and into the gardens at its end.
