Their gardens are open to visitors every Monday throughout the year, including Bank Holidays, from 10.00am – 6.00pm April to October and 10.00am – 4.00pm November to March.

From late September the oaks, maples, Liquidambar and other deciduous trees provide a riot of autumn colour.

A stroll around the beautifully-kept gardens at Englefield House shows that the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” is well and truly upon us.

As summer’s greenery makes way for autumn’s rich variety of fiery crimsons, ambers and browns.

They officially waved farewell to summer on August 31, and the many oaks, maples, sweetgum and other deciduous trees in the gardens are now treating us to a riot of colour before winter’s chill truly hits.

Records show the gardens at Englefield were being managed and cared for more than 400 years ago, with the gardens as they know them today originating from the 1860s.

Much of the planting from that time is still with us 150 years later.

Please no picnics, ball games or dogs, except guide dogs.

Please note, Englefield House is a private residence and is not open to the public.
