Autumn celebration at Hughenden
Make the most of nature's golden season at Hughenden this October as the treescape changes with the cooler days.
As the colours change from the bright hues of summer to the burnt orange and soft yellows of autumn, celebrate the season's sights, sounds and sensations in the Hughenden countryside.
Stroll through the Disraelis’ pleasure grounds and parkland to see the changing colours of the ancient specimen trees or venture further on a waymarked walk to experience the full effect of the native beech woods as the foliage turns.
