05 September 2022
As we move into September, the weather starts to change and we wake up to cool, crisp mornings. The vivid greens of Spring and Summer start to transform into the earthy tones of Autumn. What better way to experience the changes around us than stepping outside for Autumn walks?
We have put together a guide for you on some of the best Autumn walks in and around Bristol.
Blaise Castle is absolutely stunning in the autumn. As the leaves transform from luscious greens to burnt oranges, it really is magical. With acres of space and pathways, it is the perfect escape into nature. Wander into the woodland and wind your way to the top of the hill to discover a folly castle and beautiful gorge views.
Discover Goram’s Chair and the Tantrum Footprint, as well as mysterious tunnels and Robbers Cave. There are five different routes to choose from, so there is something for everyone.
Westonbirt Arboretum is home to 3000 species of trees, which leave a sea of warmth as their leaves start to fall. As the seasons change, its landscape changes too. It is somewhere you can visit time and time again.
With 17 miles of paths throughout, there is a level of accessibility to suit different people. You can make the walk as short or as long as you like.
Goblin Combe is an amazing spot for magical views across Mendip. It is a nature reserve thriving with such a variety of wildlife. As it changes from summer to autumn, different species start to peek through the green grassland.
September is one of the best times to visit – this is somewhere you don’t want to miss out. Please make sure to visit Avon Wildlife Trust’s website for information on accessibility.
Just a stone’s throw away from Bristol lies the beautiful National Trust Park of Tyntesfield. The garden and the estate are filled with an abundance of nature. With extensive woodland, flower-filled terraces and kitchen garden, there are so many places to explore.
As the seasons change, you can experience the explosion of colour that hits Tyntesfield.
