Autumn colour at Sissinghurst Castle Garden

The colour changes daily through the autumn in the Sissinghurst Castle Garden

As the sunshine starts to fade and the shorter nights draw in it may feel like a time for resting up and staying in, but for those willing to brave the elements, Autumn and Winter is a great time to visit.

Autumn garden 

The garden stays open until the end of October and there's still lots to see throughout. The cottage garden has a vibrant palette of fiery reds and golden yellows creating an autumnal scene. The trees in the orchard are full with fruit, and there's a bright smattering of colour in the other garden rooms too.

Autumn estate

The estate is a great place to be during the autumn months. There's wildlife in abundance from cows in the fields to smaller critters hiding in the woodlands. However it's not only wildlife that flourish at this time of year but also the woodland itself. The trees make for a canopy of yellows, browns and reds which add an extra special touch to our estate walks. In the wider estate our tenant farmer is hard at work harvesting the fields which makes for a great view across the low wealden landscape.
