Where you can visit 

We're starting to reopen some National Trust gardens and parks, as well as car parks, in line with government guidance. You will need to book your visit in advance. In the North West, this week you can book visits to Speke Hall, Quarry Bank, Dunham, Lyme and Tatton Park. We'll be opening new places when we can, so check back each week.

Autumn in the North West 

Make the most of autumn days at National Trust places near you. Crunch through leaves on a walk through a rainbow of autumn colour, take in seasonal spectacles such as the annual deer rut, and warm up on those colder days with comforting food and drink.

Autumn wildlife in the North West 

Autumn is alive with colour, seasonal wildlife and one of nature's fiercest mating battles - the deer rut. We've put together a list of the 'must-see' autumnal attractions in the North West.
