Durham City takes on a delightful russet glow in the autumn, and is surely one of England's prettiest cities; pack your coat and head to the medieval city for riverside walks with spectacular views of Durham Cathedral and Castle.

Head to 13th Century Crook Hall and Gardens and soak up the atmosphere over a homemade cream tea in front of a log fire in the Georgian dining room. The themed gardens that surround this fascinating building see a second flush of colour from the roses and perennials, and the greenhouse grapevine is covered with huge bunches of pretty purple fruit, with plums damsons and apples just ready to pick from the orchard. The crocuses stand like ballerinas and dance throughout the gardens, all adding to the magic of Crook Hall.
