Fall for Herts this autumn

As the school bells chime for a brand new term and the leaves begin to turn golden, there’s plenty of activity going on throughout the county that’s bound to keep you out of an early hibernation...

Autumn colour walks

With its rolling countryside, miles of footpaths and striking views, Herts is perfect walking territory. Pay a visit to National Trust's Ashridge Estate with over 5000 acres of countryside to enjoy for a day out by foot, or do a loop around beautiful Fairlands Valley Park situated within the heart of Stevenage. 

 

Pick your own

With harvest upon us, there’s plenty of ways to get your hands dirty. Pop to Willows Activity Farm for a Potato Shindig until 24th September. Meanwhile, budding sommeliers can head to Frithsden Vineyard on 22nd, 23rd and 30th September and be a part of bringing in the autumn harvest. Embark on a self-guided tours and tasting of the vineyard whilst you’re there!

Step outside the classroom

The end of summer signals time for kids to head back to school for the start of a brand new year. From a day discovering the world’s oldest mechanised paper mill at Frogmore Paper Mill, to a trip back in time (2000 years to be precise) to experience how the people of the Iron Ages Lived at Celtic Harmony, education isn’t just for inside the classroom! 

The last hurrah!

The colder weather, crisp leaves and shorter days signal the end of the main summer season, making it the perfect time to enjoy one last adventure before some of the county’s top hotspots close for the winter. Head to glorious Knebworth House before 24th September, take a trip to regal Hatfield House until 30th September, and don’t forget to fit in a visit to the Henry Moore Studios & Gardens until 22nd October.
