Best spots to see autumn colour
There's plenty of autumn colour surrounding the South Lawn, but this view of the Acer tree's distinctively vibrant red leaves set against the backdrop of the Tudor house is a must-see.
Golden sunsets and migrating birdlife on the Mersey make the Bund one of our favourite places to be in autumn. You can even look down on the Clough woodland to see a giant carpet of autumn leaves.
As you approach Speke Hall, you'll notice a long line of magnificent Lime trees along the main driveway. In autumn, their leaves turn a bright yellow-green.
Walking along the Moat garden path offers a new angle of the house, and during autumn, the red and yellow leaves here provide a beautiful frame.
