Winter walks at Osterley Park and House

The Stables as seen from the Gardens at Osterley, London

With new all-weather paths around the estate, and dog walking in our formal garden, dust off the cobwebs with a winter walk around the gardens and parkland of Osterley Park and House.

Long walks

Enjoy Robert Adam’s vistas as they were intended to be seen by taking one of our new pathways around the estate. With spectacular views across Middle Lake looking toward the house there’s no better way to get away from the busy London streets. Walk through woodland and past waterways, before dropping into our café for a warming drink and seasonal food. With the winter sun casting shadows through the bare trees it’s a great time of year to see the estate in stark beauty.

Winter walkies

This year you’ll be able to enjoy the formal gardens with your four-legged friends. Come down to the garden kiosk, pick up one of our leads and explore the wintery landscape. There’s always something beautiful in our gardens, and this time of year is the best time to visit our winter garden, with its rare plants. Or work off some energy with a stroll around the mile-long Long Walk, with beautiful views of the rear of the house.
