Autumn colour at Greys Court

When autumn arrives at Greys Court hues of reds, oranges and yellows can be seen throughout the gardens and the estate, creating a wonderful display of colour for your autumn walk.

Where are the best places for autumn colour?

The estate walk

Follow the estate walk around the outskirts of Greys Court and find yourself surrounded by the orangery-reds of the Beech Trees as their leaves change colour.

The top lawn

If it’s a warm, sunny, autumn day the top lawn is an ideal place to sit, rest and take in the impressive views across the rolling Chiltern Hills.

From this vantage point you can enjoy a panoramic view of an array of autumn colour. 

The Arboretum

Liquid Amber, Acer and Arbutos trees can all be found in the Arboretum, bursting with autumn colour.

Liquidamber is a famed autumn colouring tree from the USA where it’s known as the sweet gum.  In late summer the leaves turn a deep black crimson colour, then as autumn progresses they go through a kaleidoscope of colours - golden yellow, amber and red.

Acer trees display a vibrant red colour as their leaves change towards the end of September.

At the end of your autumn walk you will find the toilets, shop and tea-room all located nearby each other. Stop off in the tea-room for a warming drink and slice of cakes, or pop into the shop to see what treats you can get for yourself or a friend.
