Gardens and parks in and around Berkshire

As late summer ripens into autumn, the light changes and softens. Colours become more vivid as gardens give their last hurrah. Moving into autumn, foliage takes up the mantle to blaze with gold, russet and red.

Why not take a visit to the gardens of Cliveden, Basildon Park and Greys Court in September, then head back for a parkland walk later in the season?
