Make the most of the last rays of summer sun at gardens in Hampshire. There's so much to see, from Hinton Ampner's fruit and flower-packed walled garden to The Vyne's magnificent dahlia displays and brimming apple orchard.
Half-term in Hampshire is packed with activities. Our ancient creaking houses are great locations for spooky Hallowe’en goings-on. Outside, hunt for shiny conkers and edible chestnuts in the woods, full of crunchy leaves to run through and roll in.
Autumn is a time to celebrate the golden days of harvest. The Vyne has three weeks of orchard tours, apple tastings and apple pressing. You'll get expert apple growing advice from Winchester City Mill, and in the New Forest our October walk explores the mysterious world of fungi.
Mottisfont’s popular Open Exhibition brings together the creative talents of amateur and professional artists. We’re expecting a really exciting mix of artworks, which in the past has included paintings, sculpture, textiles, video, even smoke. 1 October - 13 November
This tranquil chapel tucked away in the Hampshire countryside is the perfect setting for an intimate new arts season. From a Baroque classical concert, to arts workshops, poetry readings and specialist talks, Sandham presents a unique autumn experience. 6 September - 11 October
This autumn, find out how Uppark inspired the work of one of our most famous sci-fi novelists, HG Wells. We're celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth with a season of talks, tours, Hallowe’en trails and star-gazing evenings. 10 September - 27 November
