Autumn Colour

Autumn colour At Hever Castle 1 – 29 October 

As the air turns crisp and a rich display of autumn colour envelops the countryside, pack your walking boots or wellies and head to Hever Castle to enjoy the crunch of leaves underfoot and spectacular autumn tints.

The Castle is arguably at its romantic best in the autumn when the Boston Ivy adorning the front of the Castle turns a vivid shade of red. Visitors will be treated to glorious displays of autumn colour with the rich yellow, red and orange leaves of beech mingling with liquidambars, tulip trees and Japanese maples, all contributing to an explosion of colour.


Collect an Autumn Colour Trail on arrival to learn about trees of note and interest and to discover some of the best colour hotspots in the grounds.

GUIDED TOURS OF LAKE WALK (November 16 – 20 at 11:30am)

From 16 – 20 November, commencing at 11:30 am, enjoy a leisurely Guided Tour of Lake Walk (approx. 1 hr – 1 hr 15 mins) with our gardening team.

See parts of the grounds many visitors miss, including a stunning waterfall surrounded by vibrant autumn leaves, the new Monet style bridge, three Second World War pillboxes built to defend key crossing points on the River Eden and the impressive Japanese Tea House.

Keep your eyes peeled on the walk for vivid wildlife, different fungi species and of course the changing trees.

Round off your autumn adventure by warming up in the restaurant where a tempting selection of seasonal food, tasty treats and hot drinks is on offer.

Parts of the gardens and Lake Walk are likely to be boggy in autumn – wellies or walking boots are recommended. Many parts of the gardens are accessible to prams; however, you may find that an off-road buggy or child carrier is necessary to enjoy some parts of the grounds.

For your own safety we advise wheelchair and mobility scooters keep to the hard surfaced and shingle paths.

For more information please read our accessibility statement.

Always check details before travelling. Hever Castle reserves the right to close all or part of the Castle and grounds and to change or cancel events.
