Hyde Park, London



When talking about autumn excursions, you probably wouldn’t think this urban landscape would be on the list. Hyde Park features over 4,000 trees on 350 acres, perfect for visitors looking for nature in this big city. Take a break from London’s hustle and bustle by enjoying the golden and coppery colours of autumn in London’s park retreat.


Exbury Gardens, Hampshire



Exbury Gardens is a National Collection Holder for two of the world’s most colourful types of tree, the Nyassa and the Oxydendrum. Both of which fully come to life in the peak weeks of autumn — late September to October. Visitors can explore the beautiful landscape brimming with deep, rich colours as well as try to spot the park’s most famous residents—the New Forest ponies! 


Cumbria, England



Cumbria is known for its many lakes surrounded by strong golds, reds and yellows on the hills this time of year. This stunning autumn destination is also one of the UK’s most visited regions with five million visitors taking in the scenery every year. We assume the vivid colours, beautiful woodland areas and exceptional mountain views have something to do with it.


Bridge of Orchy, Scotland



Located deep in the Scottish Highlands, this small village is known for its spectacular scenery, including dazzling mountains, tranquil waters and an array of autumnal colours.  No wonder everyone from thrill-seeking white-water rafters to those looking for a slower pace of life seek out the Bridge of Orchy.


Perthshire, Scotland



With a nickname like Big Tree County it is no wonder Perthshire is a popular autumn destination. Known for its natural beauty, Perthshire is ideal for walking, hiking and photography. The gold and copper tree-filled hillsides, as well as the jaw-dropping views, make Perthshire the perfect photography subject.
