Beautiful gardens with lakes and endless areas to walk and or picnic. It is quite hilly in places to be prepared for that. Here you will find some of the best Spring sites with all the Azaleas and in Autumn with all the stunning Autumn colours. There are toilets and cafe there too. Plenty of parking however, please note it... More

This place can be very busy indeed when the autumn colours are at their best. At very busy times, expect to queue to get in. Several scenic trails lead down to a lake with a boathouse. Children love it. Despite some paths being signed "disabled friendly", several tracks are a challenge even for the moderately able middle aged.

Very accessible walks for all capabilities, fascinating trees and beautiful landscapes. Little hidden gems include a lakeside cabin and viewing station. Brilliant for national trust members, little expensive for non-members. Not an all day activity unless its summer with a picnic in the badgers bowl (big field in a shape of a bowl). Nice little cafe too!

This was our first visit here and it won't be our last. What a lovely place to visit on a winters morning. We got there quite early and there weren't many people there. We walked all around the gardens and saw lots of wildlife - herons, green woodpecker, cormorants - it was wonderful. We took our dog too and she... More

Excellent place for a few hour's visit, not far from Guildford, Godalming, Cranleigh. A great variety of trees and flowering shrubs, beautiful at any time of the year. In the Spring, come and see the blue bells and azaleas; earlier the camellias. Takes time to fully explore all the pathways. Descend to the tranquil lake and visit the boathouse with... More

Whatever the time of year, Winkworth is well worth a visit. Magnlias and Azaleas in the early part of the year and spectacular Autumn foliage. There is a beautiful lake to walk around and a great variety of magnificent trees to experience. An adventure for everyone be they individuals, couples or the entiree family.

Always a pleasure to have a walk around Winkworth in any season, but the autumn colours were amazing.

It's been nearly 20 years since my last visit to Winkworth Arboretum and I returned this year to see and photograph the Autumn colours. Like others here, I was not disappointed! The colours are staggering. We went in the early morning and I am told it gets very busy during the day.

We visited for the first time this year because of the fantastic autumn colours this year, and were not disappointed. It was a busy Sunday so solitude was never going to easy to find but the arbotetum was spectacular. The combination and intensity of colour of the leaves made the journey worthwhile. We are planning a return trip in the... More
