Autumn Colour

As the air turns crisp and a rich display of autumn colour envelops the countryside; pack your wellies and head to Hever Castle. Enjoy the crunch of leaves underfoot and spectacular autumn hues.

The summer perennials may have faded, but the riot of colour in the grounds has only just started. Across the grounds, shades of orange, magenta, and yellow hypnotise at every turn. Be dazzled by the vibrant tones of acers, whilst the historic Chesnut Avenue will have you feeling fully absorbed by autumn’s beauty.

New this year is a self-guided trail around the lake incorporating points of interest including World War II Pillboxes, the waterfall, the impressive Japanese Teahouse and a tick-box list of autumnal coloured trees.

The gardening team will also be sharing plans for 2019 along with inspirational tips and selling daffodil and tulip bulbs on site.

It’s the season to enjoy the tumble of leaves from the trees, early morning mists and mellow fruitfulness. So pack your walking shoes and head for Hever this autumn for a day to remember.
