Are you looking forward to the crisp weather, falling leaves and beautiful autumnal colours making their comeback? If autumn is your favourite season, there’s no doubt that you like to get out and enjoy the last few days before it gets too cold and rainy to do anything at all outdoors.
Many cities across the UK are beautiful at this time of year, so which locations should you put at the top of your must-visit list? Bear in mind that while exploring a new city is exciting, it can also be expensive, so be sure to consider your finances properly before you decide where to go and what to do.
Discover the delights of the Roman Baths on a visit to this thriving city. Dating back to AD43, visitors can explore the Sacred Spring, Roman Bath House, and Roman Temple. Boasting ancient history, you’ll get the chance to see the locations that were featured in films and period dramas, such as Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which include scenes that were shot at the Royal Crescent.
If the sun is still shining on your trip, head to the River Cam to go punting, as gliding along the water is one of the best ways to see Cambridge’s beautiful riverside colleges. After a relaxing morning on the punt, visit the iconic King’s College Chapel, where you can witness the stunning stained-glass windows and breath-taking architecture.
From hiking up Arthur’s Seat to strolling through the Old Town, there are plenty of walking activities to get stuck into in Edinburgh if you’re looking to stay active on your trip. For incredible scenery, head up to Edinburgh Castle, and listen out for the cannon that is fired every day. When you’re tired, wrap up warm and take a picnic to the Meadows, where you can relax amongst the lush greenery.
If you are looking for a bit of hustle and bustle this autumn, it could be time for a trip to London. From the Tower of London to Westminster Abbey, there are plenty of famous landmarks to get around that will ensure you’re kept busy. Or, perhaps you’d like to dive into a bit of history? If so, the capital has you covered with the Natural History Museum, the National Gallery and Churchill War Rooms. When you’re ready for a rest and fancy a spot of luxury dining, you can pop into the likes of Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, or Sketch in Mayfair.
