This National Trust walk gives some of the best of the autumn colours in the less-trodden areas of the beautiful Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire.

The Ashridge Estate has been enjoyed for centuries by everyone from pilgrims to picnickers. With its rich wildlife, diverse habitats, and varied history, there’s a lot here to discover.

Ashridge has a landscape for every season and is particularly spectacular in the autumn when turning beech, oak and lime leaves add their unique shades to the overall palette.
