Apple days and Harvest events in London

Join us in celebration of the humble British apple at National Trust properties across London this autumn. Unearth heritage varieties in the orchard at Fenton House or head to Red House and enjoy the apples as William Morris would have done in harvests gone by. When you come to taste the fruit, you help us to keep it growing.

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.

Apples are a great fruit, versatile and full of flavour. And what could be more satisfying that growing your own? The range at Morden Hall Park Garden Centre includes classics, like Cox, Golden Delicious, and Granny Smith, all grown at the National Trust nurseries in Lanhydrock, Cornwall.
