Gardens and parkland in Surrey
Discover the best autumn colour, landscaped lakes and picturesque parkland in Surrey.
There is show stopping autumn colours in the wider estate at Polesden Lacey, seen from the outlook of the South Lawn, as the trees turn rich burnt orange, amber red and golden yellow.
The Long Walk at Hatchlands is a delight during autumn, with the vibrant red of the native wild service trees contrasting with the golden yellow of the beech. The New Forage Walk has views across the parkland and the young crab apples, field maples and rowan will provide a riot of colour and berries in years to come. In the garden, the lime trees look like they have lights on their tips as their leaves begin to change colour.
With its picturesque views and leafy lime walk, Claremont Landscape Garden is a breath of fresh air in autumn. Enjoy the golden light on the lake and views of the grass amphitheatre. Autumn brings beautiful and varied colours to Claremont with spectacular views from all around the lake, from high on Stoney Hill and from Camellia Terrace.
Winkworth Arboretum is much loved for its autumn colour, when the hillside turns into a kaleidoscope of yellow, red and bronze leaves. A car park space booking system will be in place this autumn from 25 September to 19 November. This is to manage numbers and make everyone's visit more enjoyable.
