September is here and that means autumn has arrived! It has been a strange summer, especially for anyone involved with the travel industry. For me, it seems to have gone in the blink of an eye and I think that is partly due to the monotony. Normally, I would be exploring places in Europe all summer and sometimes visiting destinations that are further afield (although I tend to save those for the winter months). This year, it has been so different and I am pining for the old world to return soon.
It has also been difficult to keep up with my travel writing. I have tried as best as possible and I hope those who visit the Patricia Bech Travel Notes regularly have enjoyed some of the my staycation features. Sticking with this theme, I thought that it would be a good time to highlight some of the best places to enjoy Autumn in the UK, now that September has arrived.
Here are some ideas:
This is a wonderful woodland that also offers enchanting riverbanks. There is a great range of trees to enjoy during the autumn months and there is also The Forest Commission’s Gruffalo trail. You can make the most of a visit to this part of the by enjoying the scenery on foot or bicycle.
I have written about this gem of a place before. There are literally thousands of trees here and it is a truly amazing place to visit during the autumn months. There are not many places in the UK that are better than Westonbirt as we move towards the winter months.
Another arboretum to visit, although much smaller, is Bodenham. There are unusual trees here and also plenty of ornamental trees. The colours are typically rich and vivid and you can really enjoy natures display at this time of year.
