Top autumn walks

Golden gardens, forest trails and tree-lined avenues - autumn is no time to hibernate. Fall under autumn's spell as you embark on an action-packed adventure at our places and spaces in Northern Ireland. Soak up the season's striking palette of glowing golds and warming reds as you enjoy a great day out near you.

Pick an apple from the 80 varieties of Irish heritage apple trees at Florence Court, pluck blackberries from the bejewelled hedgerows at The Argory or photograph a flying flock of Brent Geese at Strangford Lough. Spot scurrying red squirrels at Mount Stewart, darting deer at Crom or the fascinating fungi at Rowallane Garden.
