Autumn holidays

Pumpkins, conkers and early evening sunsets illuminating the skies with bursts of turquoise and pink. It can only be autumn holidays in England; a time for food and drink festivals offering melt-in-the-mouth pies and succulent seafood; enjoying long walks in leafy parks dusted with crunchy auburn, red and gold leaves, for scaring yourself silly on a ghost walk in honour of Halloween and watching the skies come alive with firework displays. Autumn is also the perfect time for seeing England’s wildlife in all its glory, from bird watching in a National Park to puffin spotting on the coast.
