Photos From the Winkworth Arboretum in Godalming Surrey

by Daniel_Wead

A selection of lovely Autumn photos from the Arboretum at Winkworth near Godalming in Surrey.

I recently visited the Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey (United Kingdom) and had the chance to take some photos of the Autumn colour on display. From red Japanese Maples to yellow Azaleas this attraction has much to offer including a lake and three separate walks including one for wheelchair users.

The Arboretum is a great place to visit all year round but especially so during Autumn or Springtime.

A car park is close by, there is also an overflow car park but the Arboretum can get busy during peak times so do plan ahead and if possible come during the week or early/late in the day.

The Arboretum has three waymarked routes of varying length, one of which is suitable for wheelchair users. The other routes involve some steep climbs and steps. All three routes offer fantastic views, a truly fantastic place for the budding photographer to visit. There is also a children's trail and quiz so youngsters can stay entertained.

Toilets are on site, including for the disabled, also baby changing facilities. A cafe can be found near the entrance but it is only open during peak times and can be quite expensive. Outdoor seating is by the entrance with several benches along the three marked routes.

The main information desk can provide advice and maps etc.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.

More information can be found on the official National Trust website.
