Apple days and Harvest events in London

The first curling leaves crunch underfoot on your way to work in the morning, the glow of long sunsets over the skyline as you return home: it’s time to embrace autumn in London and what better way than with National Trust Apple Days and Harvest events across the capital? Enjoy heritage varieties of the humble apple and juicy pear grown with care at Morden Hall Park and Fenton House. Or make your way to Red House to sample the very varieties William Morris grew back in 1860. When you take a moment to taste this year’s harvest, you also help make sure these green parts of the city are there for years to come.

Fenton House and Garden 

The apple orchard is an amazing sight in autumn, when 32 heritage varieties of apple and pear trees bear fruit, and the kitchen garden spills over with vegetables ready for harvesting. Enjoy artisan food and drink and apple tasting or just relaxing in a deck chair on the lawn.

Celebrate the Pre-Raphaelite garden with tasting of the apples and quince from the ancient orchard. A bounty that you can enjoy as William Morris and his friends and family did before you.
