The countryside is in all its glory during this time of the year. With woodlands of hundred years, arboretums, autumnal gardens and teeming with wild ponies, the countryside is very attractive for walkers.

The fall foliage is in glory, being of gold, brown, rust and auburn colors. There are numerous places to visit during fall, where you can admire the changing nature. Some of the best destinations to make great walking tours are the following: Exbury Gardens, the Lake District, New Forest in Hampshire, Westonbirt Arboretum and Staward Gorge.

Exbury Gardens

Located in Hampshire, the fantastic Exbury Gardens is one of the best sights to visit during autumn. The colorful Japanese maples, wonderful azaleas and dogwoods make an astonishing landscape. Trust me, it is worth making walking tours in the gardens. A steam locomotive gives even more attractiveness to the area. During autumn Exbury Gardens become simply spectacular.

The Lake District

The fantastic Lake District is a very attractive destination for tourists. Autumn makes the area even more astonishing. Hundreds of tourists arrive here yearly to explore the area by making walking tours. The Lake District is not only dedicated to adventurers, but for families, too. There are quite simple trails in the region, just like climbing routes which are harder to make.
