Enjoy Fairhaven Garden's Majestic Autumn Colours
The Autumn Colours tour begins at 11am and will last for 1½ hours. Normal admission charges apply, adult £5.50, concessions £5 and child £3 (under five free).
The autumn colours are spectacular and will be at their best on November 6, especially the many ancient oak and beech trees. Pride of place goes to the huge 950 year-old King Oak, which was a sapling at the time of the Battle of Hastings – believed to be the oldest tree in Norfolk – along with its near neighbour the Queen Oak.
The tour will take visitors down the Beech Walk, along the Broads Walk with its views of the garden’s private broad and past tree-lined dykes.
