“A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.”

It feels like Summer has left us and Autumn has arrived, but this opens the door to some fantastic locations in the UK to visit for a weekend away.

Westonbirt Arboretum

Located just 40 minutes from the historic town of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, is the home to over 18000 trees and shrubs hosting some of the rarest and majestic trees in the Country. Autumn produces some of the most amazing and vibrant colours – a must see from the tree top walkway.

Richmond Park, London

A haven to wildlife and a site of natural beauty, this 2,500-acre royal park is a must visit. Located only 12 miles from St Paul’s Cathedral, it is the perfect place for tranquillity and an afternoon stroll watching deer. You can make your visit even more memorable and enjoy a ride on a horse drawn carriage.

New Forest, Hampshire

Located just 10 miles away from Bournemouth, this Autumn paradise is the perfect location for hiking, cycling or even horse riding. An unspoiled landscape, where ponies, deer, pigs, and cattle wander freely for you to enjoy under the transformed red and gold forest canopy.

The Lake District

Beautiful every time of year, Autumn adds another dimension with its fantastic colours of orange and reds turning this place into something quiet magical. Many regular visitors suggest Autumn is their favourite time of year to visit.
