Autumn colour at Winkworth Arboretum 

The National Trust‘s only arboretum, near Godalming, is one of the best places in the country to see the fiery hues of autumn. Witness a magical transformation as the lush greens blaze into glorious autumn colour.

A shady path through green woodland

Polesden Lacey, Surrey

The views from the South Lawn at Polesden Lacey, across to Ranmore Common on the opposite hillside, are stunning in autumn, with flashes of autumn colour. Whilst the changing colour of the trees on the drive make for a special welcome.

Autumn highlights 

The maples at Claremont turn shades of soft amber in autumn, with touches of colour across the landscape garden. The gentle lakeside paths are perfect for kids and pushchairs, so come and play in the crunchy autumn leaves.

At Box Hill and Leith Hill you can see whole hillsides turning golden as the oak, beech and chestnut trees go from flame red to yellow. • Hindhead Commons and the Devil’s Punch Bowl has sweeping purple heather and golden grasses.
