Autumn at Tyntesfield

With the nights drawing in, Halloween round the corner, and a firework of colour crossing the estate, autumn is the perfect time to lace up your boots and take a step outside.

For everyone

Free trail maps in the ticket office will show you four different routes to see the best of Tyntesfield's seasonal colour.

Throughout the year, Tyntesfield's gardeners have carefully tended to 22 varieties of squash and pumpkin. The many weirdly shaped fruits will be on display in the Orangery throughout the autumn. 

Over 30 varieties of pumpkin and squash are harvested for the annual autumn display in the orangery in October

For families

There's a brand new seasonal trail to explore throughout autumn. Explore the sights and sounds of this special season, and discover the different types of wildlife that are active in autumn. You can 'wear a wild crown' and give one of your 50 things a go, as we'll have willow crown weaving on weekends throughout October.
