We're looking forward to welcoming you back. We’re reopening the places you love, safely and in line with government guidance. We recommend you book in advance for visits to gardens, parks and houses, especially at busy times such as weekends. See what’s open and ready for you to book this week below.
Dyrham Park is transformed with each season. Autumn is filled with interest for nature lovers; a park awash with colour, conkers falling from the trees and a bountiful pear harvest are just some of the delights on offer.
Autumn at Hidcote is a season for the senses. The red borders are in bloom and there's colour across the garden, plus it's time for the hedges to receive their annual haircut. There will be '50 things' activities for families and a self-led trail, focusing on noticing nature.
Join us this autumn for nature trails, estate walks and unrivalled views of the Ozleworth valley. Children can enjoy spotting toadstools on the croquet lawn, learning about fantastic fungi, and discover the caved woodland animals.
Westbury is the perfect place for an autumnal walk; if you visit the garden in September and October you'll see the autumn tints starting to colour the leaves and the fruits and berries on the trees ripening. There are plenty of places for hide and seek, and lots of nature to spot with your family.
We've got lots of fun activities to try on your next family adventure. Discover wildlife at the places in our care using our handy spotter guides or have a go at activities inspired by the colours and sounds of nature.
Gloucestershire is home to some outstanding gardens, and during the autumn they fill with colour from late flowers and vibrant foliage. The crisp days of autumn are a great time to explore these gardens which we've reopened in line with Government guidelines.
Whether you’re looking for fuel to kick-start a chilly ramble on the coast, or are returning from a gentle stroll in the woods, you’ll find these kiosks, cafés and tea-rooms are great places to refuel and enjoy a treat or two. What's more, every visit you make and piece of cake you buy helps us carry on looking after special places for everyone to enjoy, for ever.
If you're in need of a National Trust fix but can't get out at the moment, we have some different ways you could recreate your favourite places from the South West at home, from baking to knitting to cut-out and create models.
You'll find lots of places open now – more than 135 gardens and parks and hundreds of coast and countryside locations. We have opened many of our houses in England and Wales. However, following the latest official guidance, all houses in Northern Ireland are now closed. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel. Read this article to find out how to book and what to expect from your visit.
There's lots to do during the autumn in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Check out the things you can get up to as a family in each county in the South West on crisp autumn days out, for the October half term and on Halloween.
