The Best Autumnul Walks in the UK
Wednesday, 30 October 2019
Autumn has arrived and the British countryside is alive with a palette of vivid colours waiting to be explored with picturesque views of stunning landscapes. From bracing walks on rugged heathlands to more gentle strolls through golden woodland wonderlands, we have rounded up our favourite UK walks to enjoy this autumn.
Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire – a National Trust favourite - is an impressive sight, especially when surrounded by a sea of red, orange and gold foliage. Explore the boundary of the estate and take in breath-taking views of the Abbey – you may even be lucky enough to spot some deer along the way.
As pictured above: The Kingston Lacy Trail in Dorset
For that Instagram-must-have shot, explore the Kingston Lacy walking trail in Dorset. This 3.8-mile walk takes you along the stunning Beech Avenue, where an unforgettable tree canopy is a spectacular sight of russet tones in the autumn months.
Designed with autumn in mind, Speke Hall in Liverpool is a picturesque trail through landscaped gardens and along the sandy Mersey coastline, where yellow and gold tones play a prominent role. This is one for all the family as the kids will enjoy getting lost in the maze too.
For those who live in or are visiting Wales, head to the lower slopes of Snowdon and the Nant Gwynant Valley in Gwynedd. You’ll find a beautiful canopy of red and orange oak leaves and get the chance to ascend the famous Watkin Path.
During the autumnal months, Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey comes to life with colour too. This historical 2.5-mile trail takes you through woodlands and charming villages with houses that have remained largely untouched for hundreds of years.
With the promise of bright blue skies and spectacular scenery, it’s time to dust off those walking boots, head out into the crisp fresh air and make the most of the great outdoors before winter is upon us.
