Escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy some autumnal fresh air at Ham House. There's a riot of colour in the Kitchen Garden where a huge variety of vegetables are ready to harvest and burnished tones of red and gold all around the riverside estate.
As autumn arrives so does the opportunity to see swathes of colour around the estate at Osterley Park and House. From the Shagbark Hickory showing glorious golds and rich reds, to the bright orange and yellows of pumpkins and gourds from the Ornamental Vegetable Garden.
Watch as the light glimmers off golden leaves during an autumn walk at Morden Hall Park. The park's iron bridges offer somewhere to stop and savour the seasonal sights before tucking into something warm in the Potting Shed Café.
Stop by Rainham Hall’s community garden, a tucked away treasure of nearly three-acres. The garden is accessible with sloping gravel paths, lawns and a small orchard with apples, plums, mulberry and pear trees. It’s free to enter too.
August’s mix of sunshine and showers has been good to National Trust gardens in Hampshire. It has prolonged floral colour at Hinton Ampner and encouraged leafy produce in Mottisfont’s kitchen garden. The fruit orchard at The Vyne is preparing for a bumper crop. Indulge in a peaceful September visit whilst the warm weather lingers.
With vibrant displays of flowers and dewy mornings, September is a beautiful time of year in our gardens in Surrey. Don’t miss the highlights at Polesden Lacey, Winkworth Arboretum, Hatchlands Park and Claremont Landscape Garden.
