The Top UK Destinations To Visit This Fall
With the leaves changing, fall has officially arrived in the UK. In and around the country, you can find some majestic national parks, fall foliage and heritage buildings made even more spectacular by their vibrant colors. Dive into the article, for our favorite destinations to visit this fall.
While the Cotswolds are beautiful at any time of the year, it’s exceptional during fall. With maple trees bursting in fall colors, you’ll be surrounded by peace and tranquillity. Mid-September also has far fewer crowds than any other time of the year. Discover enchanting villages and the famed Blenheim palace, ideal for visiting during this season. If you’re a true Shakespearean fan, stay at the luxurious Welcombe Hotel — 4 minutes away from the Royal Shakespeare Company.
On the hunt for spell-binding walks? Bristol is an ideal choice. With enjoyable walking routes, tree-lined boulevards and iconic skylines, fall is a great time to visit. As the days get shorter, the leaves turn into a majestic red and yellow and bring with it a dramatic backdrop. If you’re looking for easy access to the city, stay at the Leon Hotel Bristol City, located along Bristol’s harbor and close to the observatory. Heading there with a special someone? Take in the most romantic spots in the city, while listening to historical love stories.
While Oxford is picturesque at any time of the year, it transforms during the fall months. If you’re on the hunt for photo opportunities, Oxford will provide you with spectacular lighting in mid-October (think red maple leaves against a golden hue). Visit one of the many cosy cafes, perfect for curling up with a cuppa or hot chocolate. Whether you’re visiting Oxford on a day trip or looking to spend a weekend, there are plenty of activities for the whole family. For the complete experience, stay at the Mercure Oxford Maxwell House — two magnificent manor houses dating back to the 19th century.
In Southeast England, Kent is one of the best places to visit if you want to be surrounded by nature. Not only will you experience vineyards and orchards bursting with color, but you’ll also be spoilt for choice when it comes to drinks. With grape harvest season offering delicious wine and cider, you’ll find plenty to sip and savour while taking in your surroundings. Looking to try something new? You can also go truffle hunting with an experienced guide. Stay at the Queen Phillippa, if you’re looking for a quaint and comfortable bed and breakfast.
If you’re searching for an fall trip packed with adventure, consider exploring Nottingham in early November. Nottingham offers comfort food, long walks through crunchy leaves and the Bramley Apple Festival in Southwell. For a taste of rustic country charm, stay at The Olde Barne Sure Hotel. Explore the wilderness in Sherwood Forest during the day, and unwind at the hotel’s spa and sauna facilities during the evening. Looking to take in a few landmarks along the way? Consider a private walking tour with an experienced guide.
