Winkworth Arboretum – Stunning Autumn Colors | National Trust | Surrey, UK

Winkworth Arboretum, in Surrey, England, is best known for its displays of stunning autumn foliage. Managed by the UK’s National Trust, this 110 acre site contains over 1000 different species of shrubs and trees, many of which erupt into fiery displays of intense red, gold and yellow in autumn. Details: The many types of Acers at Winkworth Arboretum produce amazingly intense autumnal foliage displays set against a natural valley landscape. Azaleas, Liquidambars and Nyssa’s also take on spectacular, vibrant autumnal colours. However, vivid autumn colours can be very fleeting in the UK. The displays are often only at their peak for a few days before the first of the autumn storms rolls in and the trees are stripped bare. If you have the opportunity to visit Winkworth at its peak I would advise you to take it! The Arboretum was started in 1937 by Dr. W. Fox, an enthusiastic amateur gardener and botanist who established an extensive collection of trees and shrubs, some of these are quite rare. Many of the trees are now mature and produce impressive displays of autumn foliage. Location: Winkworth Arboretum is located at Hascomb Road, Godalming , Surrey, GU8 4AD, England, UK.
