How to Get Out and Enjoy Autumn

Posted on Sep 29, 2021 Tags: , , , , , ,

Here at the Christmas Lovers’ Club, we love each and every one of the four seasons. While Winter may be our favourite, the chill of autumn can only mean that Christmas is on its way.

So trade in your flip flops for a comfy knitted jumper and join us in celebrating the build-up to the festive season. Here are a few ways to make the most of this golden crested season; with the last of the summer sun, flaming trees, and the hint of cinnamon in the air.

Seasons mean that our beautiful landscape undergoes a beautiful transformation every few months; get out there and embrace the magic of autumn. All of these activities are great to do solo, with friends and family or with your special someone.


Witness the changing autumn leaves and the crisp quality of the autumn air, from on a kayak floating down a canal, or an estuary. Even if this is something you haven’t tried before there are plenty of great clubs and hire places that will be able to lend a hand, give you some tips or even take you out with an instructor so you can join in regardless of your ability level. Make sure you get some professional advice before heading out if you are a beginner.


Who says that the seaside is a fairweather activity only, some of the most spectacular days at the beach are stormy ones. Look out for days when the cold air leaves a mist behind. Beaches can be enjoyed whatever the season. So wrap up warm for a walk or gather with friends on an autumn evening, with a fire and beers all round. Cheers!

Woodland walk

Woods in autumn are a sensation for the senses. Smell the crisp, earthy aromas and soak up the seasonal sights, whilst working up an appetite for your Sunday lunch. It is also the perfect time to spot birds and other wildlife. As the trees die down ready for the winter rest, they begin to reveal parts of nature that normally tuck themselves behind leaves. Wrap up warm and go and see what you can spot.

Star Gazing

Cold cloudless nights are perfect for stargazing. Bring along a flask of tea. a beanie and some binoculars and see the beautiful sights of the universe. There are now great apps that help you find constellations and as the nights are drawing in you can get out earlier if you are taking the little ones and still be home for bedtime.

Bike ride

Bring a natural glow to your cheeks and enjoy the autumn scenery as you sail past it on two wheels. Make it even better by treating yourself to lunch on route. If you don’t have your own bike, your local hire place will be able to give you some ideas for a route.

Hot chocolate

Nothing says autumn more than a mug of velvety hot chocolate topped with whipped-cream and mini marshmallows. Why not have a little mooch around the park to take in the autumn delights and then find a cosy corner in your favourite cafe to nurse a steaming mug of chocolatey goodness with a good novel for company. Or alternately, take your hot drink with you. It will help keep your fingers warm while you enjoy our wonderful britsh nature.
