Top 5 things to do this autumn
The crunch of leaves, misty mornings, nature's fiery palette, conker fights and hot chocolates. Autumn is rather special, so join us for our top 5 things to do.
1. Enjoy colourful reflections
Double the sculpture, double the trees, double the beauty. As you breath in the crisp autumn air on your walk, make the most out of the outdoor sculpture before they are ‘put to bed’ for the winter season. Venture towards our Parterre fountain, and see how the autumnal colours shimmer in its reflection.

2. Discover tremendous trees and delicious food
Do you love misty mornings and the tantalising smell of wood smoke as dusk begins to fall? Join Gardens Manager, Mike Buffin for an autumn trees guided walk through the spectacular hidden corners of the gardens on Sun 20 October 2019. Afterwards tuck into an afternoon tea in the historic Manor Restaurant.
3. Wine and dine in style
