5 Great Autumnal Days Out in London
Dig your warm coat out from the back of the wardrobe and grab your sturdiest pair of leaf-crunching shoes, because Autumn has blazed back into London – and it’s one of the capital’s most beautiful seasons. While Addison Lee are here to get you from cosy pub lunch to harvest festival in warmth and comfort, there are also plenty of scenic outdoor outings you won’t want to miss; here we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites.
- Greenwich Park
Head over to Greenwich Park to make sure you’re fully stocked up on conkers from the many horse chestnut trees. After that, you can admire the autumnal views across the River Thames and the majestic red deer in the Deer Park.
- Nunhead Cemetery
If you’re looking for a slightly spookier Autumn outing as Halloween approaches, Nunhead Cemetery balances the eerie with the picturesque: past the intricate Victorian monuments to the dead in the foreground (some almost entirely overtaken by nature), the vista across London is pretty spectacular – particularly on a misty Autumn morning.
- Regents Canal
The towpath along Regents Canal is the ideal route for an idyllic stroll in the Autumn months. Admire the canal boats docked along the stretch of the canal, and wind up in picturesque Little Venice to warm up with a roast dinner in one of the canalside pubs.
- Kew Gardens
Claiming an impressive 14,000 trees within its parameters, Kew Gardens is perhaps the best place in London to see Autumn colours rioting across the skyline. Scale the 118 steps to the Treetop Walkway for the best possible view – we promise it’s worth it.
- Richmond Park
Although picturesque all year round, Richmond Park is perhaps never more beautiful than in Autumn. Home to 600 deer who enter mating season from September to November, you may well see a few amorous stags clashing antlers amongst the mist and rust-coloured leaves.
