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

Winkworth Arboretum is great to visit in Autumn when the leaves on many of the trees turn bright red. When we visited the cafe was open and there was also a van selling burgers, hotdogs and hot drinks. You should allow 1-2 hours to walk down to the lake and back to the car park.

This is one of our favourite National Trust locations, which can be enjoyed at all times of the year. We have also visited with relatives who were really amazed by the variety of autumn colours on display. Admittedly, Winkworth is most stunning in Autumn, but the meadows and lushness of the greenery in Summer is just as amazing. Not to... More

We visited this National Trust property on an autumn Sunday for a walk and a view. On arrival it was clear that it was busy, we parked in the overflow car park for the overflow car park. It provides some lovely trails through the collection of trees, which at this time of year are changing colour beautifully. But we were... More

Really beautiful place to come especially in spring and autumn as there is a great selection of trees and Azaleas. The views of the Surrey hills and lake add to the overall beauty of the landscape.

A great place to explore and the autumn foliage was amazing. We were lucky to arrive at a fairly quiet time because it can get very busy at the weekends and car parking is limited. The café facility is limited with not a lot to eat available apart from cakes, when we arrived. Overall well worth a visit-especially in autumn!

Very poor. Inadequate toilet facilities, very poorly organised parking for so many visitors, no tea room of the usual NT standard, non-existent (apart from one) labelling on trees and bushes. This doesn't qualify as an arboretum in our book - just an overcrowded walk in the woods. Very pretty woods, admittedly, with some beautiful trees, but other, less crowded, woods... More

We visited Winkworth with friends last week, autumn is a lovely time to visit with the varied tree colours, and we had a very pleasant walk, until around 1.15pm, when we went to the cafe. What a disappointment. Right on lunchtime, and there were no sandwiches or sausage rolls left, in fact hardly any food at all. We had soup,... More

Winkworth Arboretum is very popular for its fall foliage - in my view, better than Westonbirt - and consequently can get busy at weekends. In fact, by the time we left (before 1pm on Sunday afternoon), the queue of cars waiting to get into the car park stretched for at least a quarter of a mile back northwards in the... More
