Euston Railway station, Kings Cross, London, UK
Join us for this woodland walk and find 50 shades of orange all around! Every corner you turn, or hill you climb, will give you lots of breathtaking views of Ashridge in autumn. You will see some of the best of the autumn colours in the less-trodden areas of the estate… This walk is ideal for Londoners who want a break from the city!
You will walk through a 5,000 acre area with beech and oak woodlands, commons and chalk downlands. The woods have lots to offer and there is a good chance of seeing some of the fallow deer that roam the woods. 5,000 acre area with beech and oak woodlands, commons and chalk downlands.

Meeting point and time:
Our host will be waiting for you at 9:35 am. at the Euston Railway station at the ticket office near the M&S Simply Food.
We will make our way to the platform at 09:50 am. If you are late I’m afraid we will not be able to wait and you will be missing the trip. We will aim to take 10:01 train* that arrives at Tring at 10:36 am.
Please note that there are no toilet facilities at the Tring station so it’s strongly recommended to use ones at the London Euston before the departure.
Train*: Please note that as the rail network is very unreliable, those details might change depending on the train delays and we may take an earlier or later train. The decision might need to be taken by the leader on the spot to suit the group’s needs. If you do not arrive at the meeting time, we can not guarantee that you will be able to catch up with the group as the leader may not be able to update you about any changes – even if you call or message them, as sometimes the phone network might not be available and often they might be busy taking care of the group. Leader’s priority will always have to be the customers that arrived on time. We add the train details in order to help you out if you have problems getting to the meeting point on time, but take no responsibility for any changes – so the only way to ensure you do not miss out on the event is to arrive on time at the meeting point.
Clothing and Equipment list:
Please note that unless the trip is canceled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance. However, you may be able to sell your place to your friends or other group members if you follow this procedure: http://katsadventures.com/#plx_progress_faq_section
