The incredible sight of foliage ripening into the rich colours of autumn is one of the joys of the season. From Winkworth Arboretum to the Surrey Hills don’t miss autumn’s highlights in Surrey. Every time you catch one of those falling leaves, you help us look after homes for wildlife.
Hallowe’en will be in full swing at our special places in Surrey this October half-term with a spooky trail at Polesden Lacey, pumpkin carving at Claremont Landscape Garden and plenty of crunchy leaves to stomp through at Hatchlands Park.
See Surrey in a new light and make the most of the autumn colour. Our downloadable walks are easy to follow with step-by-step directions. The Polesden Lacey to Denbies Hillside walk, near Dorking, takes in ancient woodland brimming with autumn colour. While the Winkworth to Oakhurst walk shows off some of the finest autumn colour in the South East.
Every step you take helps us keep footpaths open for years to come.
We've got top spots for cycling, tranquil waterways and plenty of hills to climb across Surrey. Whether you want to picnic lazily or walk for hours, you're sure to find something to enjoy in the countryside we look after in Surrey.
Our Dining Room is currently home to a display commemorating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. See the famous Cobbe portrait of Shakespeare at Hatchlands Park, perhaps the only lifetime likeness of the poet, surrounded by related pictures from our tenant Alec Cobbe’s collection.
Check out the latest updates on Polesden Lacey's ambitious plan to restore and reveal and additional 26 rooms in the house, previously unseen by the public. What untold stories will be uncovered as we delve deeper into these private spaces inhabited by everyone from servants to royalty?
We’re welcoming visitors back to Clandon Park, for a series of open days.
