Autumn colour at Claremont

Once a favoured royal retreat, Claremont's sculpted landscape provides a stunning backdrop for a rejuvenating autumnal stroll. An autumnal treat hides around every corner: 300-year-old sweet chestnuts loose their bounty, lime-lined avenues light up in yellow, and piles of crunchy leaves gather, awaiting the joyous leaps of tiny boots. Here's a taster of the best to see this season in the garden.

When is the best time to see the autumn colours?

The first signs of autumn usually appear from mid September, with the autumnal display coming out in full during October and well into November. There's something new to see everyday during this fast changing season.

Where can I eat and drink?

Visit the cafe for freshly made hot lunches, cakes and bakes and warming hot drinks. We have children's portions available too along with ice creams for when the sun shines!

Is the garden accesible?

The path around the lake is a level hoggin service which is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. 

What to look out for

Sharing your snaps

Autumn is a wonderful time to take photos in the garden, whether it's the mist rising off the lake, colourful fungi or the trees turning golden. We'd love to see your photos, share them on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
