This is the best time of year to get outdoors. There’s nothing better than wrapping up warm and heading out to see the leaves changing colour, from gorgeous golds to russet reds. Mist hangs over fields and parks in the morning, there are often spectacular sunsets and the stars seem brighter at night.

Ten of the best autumn woods

As the days shorten and temperatures drop our woodlands show signs of the new season. Walk along wooded paths, crunch on fallen leaves and smell fruits ripening in hedgerows. Visit the Woodland Trust’s  top woods for some amazing autumn colour.

Wildlife in the woods

Autumn is a time of change, of migration and arrival and frantic activity. Some animals leave for the winter while others prepare for the cold weather to come. Stunning fungal sculptures emerge and trees put on a dazzling display of colour. Explore seasonal wildlife highlights.

Autumnal activities

Celebrate the season with us at one of our events. Light up at a lantern-making workshop, discover magical mushrooms on a fungal foray, pull on your wellies for a woodland wander or get crafty with crispy leaves.
