  6. Wow, breathtaking colour. I've enjoyed a couple of autumn trips to Westonbirt when my youngest two were at pre-school. It was a really cheap trip, I think it's probably too expensive for us now, but we really loved visiting together on the coach. Your photos are fantastic, no doubt you had a lovely time there.

    1. The entrance fee is on par with National Trust properties these days. However there was alot on when we were there which made it good value.

  11. We went yesterday - colour was glorious, but it was soooo crowded, not really ideal for me. Either it was much emptier when you were there, or you were very patient waiting for people to move out of your photos!

    We went to Batsford on Wednesday, which also has wonderful colour at this time of year.

    1. The car park was packed but people seemed to disperse so quickly. I suspect it'll be really crowded this week as it's half term. I went to Batsford in the spring and the leaf colour was pretty good back then too :)

  12. I haven't made it there this year, although frustratingly, I've driven past a couple of times on my way to do other things. Even from the road it looks amazing - and this has not been a great year for autumn colour. Thanks for the virtual visit!

    1. The Acer Glade in the old arboretum and the maples in Silk Wood are the places to go Victoria. There's a very interesting climate change experiment in Silk Wood too.
