Autumn Sundays in October at Hole Park Gardens in Kent 2021

Things to see and do
Hole Park garden in Kent

Hole Park Gardens in Kent are renowned for their beauty all year round including spectacular autumn colour when the gardens extend their opening to include Autumn Sundays in October in addition to Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The stunning exotic border is full of vibrant colours in October including cannas and dahlias.  The late flowering agapanthus ‘Hole Park Blue’ can also be seen in the formal gardens.

The magnificent mature trees and Japanese Maples provide striking autumn colour at this time of year around the 16 acre gardens and 10 acre woodland.

Visitors can enjoy a circular walk which takes walkers past a delightful carved wooden sculpture of a family of bears climbing a tree to reach a honey pot and also a renovated ‘Ice House’ which was built in around 1740 to store ice long before the days of refrigeration. When the ice was cut and stacked it would last for up to three years in this cool environment!

Open on Wednesday and Thursdays until the end of October visitors can also enjoy additional Sunday opening on 3rd, 10th , 17th  & 24th  and 31st October 2021.  11am to dusk.

Lunches, afternoon tea with homemade cakes will be available in the coach house tearoom where there is also a plant stall selling a varied selection of plants to take home.  Jam, preserves, beer and apple juice from the Hole Park Estate are also available.
