Things to do with the kids in Berkshire

Don't miss the early autumn colour still bright in the gardens, then the blanching and flushing of the trees into rich bronzes, reds and gold. Experience the changes in the air as autumn advances, the smell of woodsmoke and rich earth, lifted with the tang of apples. The sounds change too. The rustle and swish of crispy leaves is the soundtrack to an autumn walk searching for conkers and chasing falling leaves. We'd love to welcome your family to experience nature at its most spectacular this autumn.

Family activities throughout the season celebrate the richness of autumn. Hunt for colourful ancient treasures in the house or delve into a world of earthy scents and crunchy leaves on the sensory garden trail (both 6 Sept–31 Oct). At half-term there are fancy bat characters to hunt for and a prize (22 Oct-1 Nov). We’re a top spot for conkers too – search for them on our woodland walk.
