After a long hot Summer, it won’t be long before the nights start drawing in, and a lovely, cosy feeling descends across the nation. This means it’s time to start making plans for Autumn trips you want to take. It’s one of the most beautiful times to visit places around the country with beautiful copper tones, yellows and reds spreading throughout nature, as well as the cooler weather making it easier to enjoy being out and about for the day. If you’re looking for the perfect Autumn trip this season, here are some great ideas for places to visit, creating a trip to remember.
Cosy Cotswolds Adventures
The English countryside is beautiful all year round, whether visiting National Trust gardens in the Summer or seeing the early buds flowering in Spring. However, Autumn is one of the most glorious times to see some of the most stunning sights such as gorgeous golden hues and colourful woodlands. One of the best places for a countryside adventure is the Cotswolds. Take a stroll through magical villages on a crisp Autumn day while making a stop at a charming pub for a hearty lunch. Enjoy the diverse landscape and panoramic views on offer across the rolling hills, taking in the crunchy paths full of fallen leaves and breath-taking scenery throughout. One of the most popular and picturesque villages is Bourton-on-the-Water which is often referred to as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ thanks to its small attractive bridges located over the River Windrush. A must-see for any Cotswolds trip.
European Delights in Bruges
One of the best parts about the colder seasons is sitting in front of a fire with some of the best hot chocolate in Europe. This is the type of experience you can expect in the ever-popular Bruges, another destination which is great for visiting throughout the year, including the Autumn months. This beautiful medieval city is loved by many for its tranquil canals, historical buildings and cobbled streets. Delights on offer include cosy horse-drawn carriage rides through the streets, homemade Belgium chocolates and delicious beers. It’s also possible to schedule in some early Christmas shopping, as Bruges’ world-famous Christmas market starts at the end of November.
Coach Trips to Top UK Towns
Travel hassle-free in the comfort of a luxury vehicle by joining Autumn coach trips to some of the UK’s most popular towns. With the royal wedding putting Windsor back on the map this year, why not book a day trip to this beloved destination in Berkshire. See the home of 39 monarchs with a tour around Windsor Castle and take a ride on the Royal Windsor Wheel for superb views over the town. You can even enjoy a river cruise and order cream tea while taking in the sights. Another town which is perfect for an Autumn day trip is Winchester. Wander around the magnificent cathedral or even take a short trip to Avington Park which borders the River Itchen. Book a private tour to see one of the prettiest stately homes in the country.
