As autumn begins, the Parkland and gardens at Basildon Park transform into a riot of oranges, reds and hues of yellow as the leaves change.

With a wide variety of tree species at Basildon Park, there’s much to be seen, and enjoyed, during a walk this autumn.

As you wander through the parkland spot the Tulip trees changing to vibrant colours in September and October.

The yellowing leaves of the Field Maples make for a contrast to the surrounding reds and oranges that are appearing on the beech trees throughout the parkland as well.

There are four way-marked walks around the parkland at Basildon Park to explore autumn colour.

For some of the best views back to the house in autumn, take the green walk that takes you to the very outskirts of the Basildon estate.


It’s a 400-yard walk uphill to the house – a visitor buggy is available. House entrance is up 22 steps.

Accessible toilets available.

Uneven terrain on walking routes, which can become muddy.

There’s cattle in the parkland.
