Autumn Adventures

There’s something very special in the air at this time of the year. A crisp autumn breeze, crackling log fires and bristling leaves, floating delicately towards the ground, inspire many people to celebrate this picturesque season.

From the traditional celebration of the Harvest Festival, to the thrill and excitement of Guy Fawkes’ Bonfire Night, to the excitement of costumes and trick or treating on Halloween, autumn is the perfect time of year for celebration.

Enjoy creative pumpkin carving, the best locations to appreciate autumn colours, spooky places to visit to get into the Halloween spirit and all things autumnal in this section of or blog.
