This selection of autumn short breaks in the UK offers an escape to the rolling countryside or exciting cities. Take a break from every day and watch the trees change colours as you sip a hot chocolate beside a roaring woodburning stove. With a great selection of destinations to choose from and interiors to suit all tastes, Autumn is an idyllic season for a short break, away from the crowds of Summer.

Why an Autumn Short Break?

A short break is something to look forward to and one that doesn't require you to book time off from work. Autumn enjoys a mild temperature, ideal for outdoor explorers and those looking for a bustling city trip with much to see and do. Wrap up in a scarf and admire the morning sunshine on your face and stroll along cobbled high streets to find rustic pubs serving mulled cider. Short Autumn Breaks in the UK is the perfect time to escape into a book you've been waiting to read and to snuggle up in a rustic sitting room, complete with exposed beams and a roaring fireplace.

Places to Visit on a Short Autumn Break UK?

Once the tourists have emptied at the end of Summer, Cornwall and Devon make a blissful destination in Autumn, where you can paddle in clear waters and unwind on golden sands. What better than exploring the rugged coastline of Cornwall or surfing the waves without the bustle of crowds.

Put on your wellies and get out in nature with a break to the Cotswolds, or even a sweeping countryside getaway to the Yorkshire Dales. Also, be sure to check out hideaways in the Peak District to see Stately homes and wonderful fells. History lovers looking for a city break can spend the weekend in the cities with Roman history including Bath or Chester? For more inspiration, check out our UK Travel Guide.
