Autumn at Kedleston Hall

autumn colour in Kedleston's pleasure ground

The warmer summer days have drawn to a close and the lush greenery of summer dramatically transitions into vibrant bursts of deep russets and gold. Take a stroll through the vast parkland as the whole landscape changes into an Autumn paradise.

Kedleston is the perfect autumnal backdrop, a landscape of changing colours, with the American Oak's striking red leaves and the Larch's rusty golden hues. There are plenty of opportunities to sit and admire the landscape views, with benches along the popular short, long and lakeside walk routes.

Don't forget, this season you'll need to pre book your visit to Kedleston through the website, including for a parkland walk. This is to ensure social distancing can be maintained in all areas of your visit.

As well as the colourful scenes, look out for the wildlife within the park including buzzards, red kites, swans, woodpeckers and heron. Fungi can be spotted along all walks in the free walk leaflet and we'd love to see your colourful photos on social media, just use the hashtag #kedlestonhall when you post.
