Britain’s 10 most glorious autumn gardens, as chosen by readers


Guardian readers

Ancient oaks, faerie trails, abbey parks and deer feature in our readers’ favourite places to watch the vivid autumn colours

For a feast of autumn colour visit Calderstones Park, in south Liverpool. This large park boasts a collection of native and exotic trees whose autumnal spectacle of crimson, vermilion, russet and ochre assaults the sight. Visit the Japanese garden for a taste of oriental autumn, where colours and textures touch the senses. Stand in the Pinetum and marvel at these giant beauties. Wander across to visit the Allerton oak and reflect on how its moss-laden, gnarled branches have witnessed 1,000 autumns. If all this makes you peckish pop along to the Reader cafe for suitable autumnal fare.
