Where To Staycate In The UK This Autumn

Matt Crisp September 30, 2020

Autumn has now officially begun but that doesn’t mean that we can still dream of fun holidays away – and, in fact, this is a wonderful time of year to explore the UK, which is just as well since we can’t really go overseas all that easily at the moment thanks to the global pandemic.

With rules around travel changing on a daily basis, it would perhaps be less stressful to think about going on a UK staycation over the next few months, instead of planning a big trip abroad only to find at the last minute that you can’t get on the plane.

But where to go? To help you put your travel itineraries together, we’ve compiled a little list of some of the very best places around the UK to visit during autumn. Which of these will make it to the top of your must-see list this year?


The Longshaw estate

Head off to the Peak District at this time of year and take in the sights and sounds of the Longshaw estate, which is stunning during autumn as the leaves change colour.

There are some amazing walking trails to be found here, such as the Longshaw, Burbage and Eastern Moors trail (a great choice for mushroom hunters), and if you’re lucky you’ll see lots of red deer roaming the moors, as well.


The Isles of Scilly

If you love nothing more than stretching your legs while on holiday and doing as many walking tours as possible, you must visit the Isles of Scilly at some point in the near future. 

You’ll have a wonderful time exploring the different isles – and it’s a brilliant place for a spot of foraging, as well… so make sure you try the edible seaweed you’re sure to find on your travels. Keep your eyes peeled for seal pups along the coastline, as well.



If you’d rather go on a city break over the next few weeks, Edinburgh should perhaps go at the very top of the list. You’ll find fewer tourists than during the summer months, so you’ll be able to enjoy it at your leisure, reeling in the autumn colours which really come to life here.

Make sure you climb Arthur’s Seat for some incredible views and don’t forget to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens before you head home once again.


The Wye Valley

If it’s autumn leaves you’re keen to see – and lots of them – then make your way to the Wye Valley, which has walking opportunities aplenty to suit all levels of ability. For a gentle stroll, follow the six-mile section of the Wye Valley Walk to Tintern Abbey, the ruins of which look absolutely incredible at this time of year.
