Activity holidays in autumn

Activity holidays in autumn

Let nature be your playground this autumn as you take in breath-taking views on a country hike, cycle along leaf filled paths through the forest or cut through the waves on your surfboard on an adventure holiday in England. Get wet and wild at the south coast’s only inflatable water park at the New Forest Water Park; grab your hiking shoes and enjoy walks in ancient woodland on the Coast & Country Walking Festival in Eastbourne and thrill seekers can get muddy as they drive on the byways and tracks on and around Salisbury Plain on a high-adrenalin adventure holiday Wiltshire.
