The summer may be officially over, but nobody told the gardens around Berkshire. They're still looking lovely in the September sun and in many places you can see (and taste) the kitchen garden produce being put to good use.
The kitchen garden earns its keep in September at Greys Court with lots of produce heading to the kitchen for jam and cakes.
As the season subsides, the gardens of this former Tudor ‘power house’ offer flourishes of eye-catching shape and colour to those ‘in the know’.
Sandham Memorial Chapel near Newbury is a hidden gem. The recently restored garden of reflection is lovingly tended by volunteers on closed days so that you can soak up the September sun in peace.
The last of Cliveden’s summer schemes are in flower around the estate. In The Long Garden there’s a sea of 10,000 hot pink Begonias, whilst in The Rose Garden there are 900 roses in their final bloom of season.
Choose a family-friendly woodland trail or take on a more challenging terrain on a woodland hike.
Scroll through our downloadable autumn walks across London and the South East and pick the colour that suits you best.
From the crisp coppers of Kent to brooding bronzes of Berkshire - there is a shade for everyone this autumn.
