Our free autumn pass promotion has now come to an end. Thank you to everyone who has claimed a free visit.

This year, we gave away a select number of free passes for everyone to enjoy autumn at the places in our care. We’ve now given these passes away – if you claimed one, you have until 20 October 2023 to use it.

There’s still so much to explore this autumn, from woodland wanders to strolls in a colourful autumn garden. Spot birds, see what kinds of fungi you can recognise and take photos surrounded by leaves.

With hundreds of places to visit, there’s something for everyone.
