Hey, September! Good to see you – it’s been a while. While it’s mildly sad that the good old British summer has disappeared, we here at Team Super Break just love the autumn season! All we’ve been able to talk about for the past few weeks is the promise of cosy nights in watching The Great British Bake Off and warming meals/drinks. Take a peek at our autumnal tip list and make the most of the leafy few months!
1. Take a long walk through the leaves
Is there anything more satisfying than walking through a big pile of leaves and finding a conker?! We think not… Grab a loved one and enjoy the auburn shades on a long walk.
2. Wrap Up Warm
No sun, no fun? Wrap up warm and you might think otherwise! The autumn is perfect for layering your favourite clothing and treating yourself to that scarf you’ve seen for the last few weeks…
3. Organise a UK weekend break for something to look forward to
Edinburgh? Oxford? Liverpool? Where will you next trip take you? Get your friends together and enjoy a weekend somewhere fun – it’s one thing more to look forward to in autumn!
4. Start your Christmas shopping
Let’s admit it, nobody likes queuing. It makes good sense to get this festive task out of the way – the sooner the better!
5. Learn to make a hearty dish
Whether you like stew and dumplings or a sticky toffee pudding, it always tastes better if it’s homemade! Find a new recipe and challenge yourself!
6. See a West End Show
Autumn is a great time to see a show on the glittering West End! Take in a matinee performance for a day trip or look forward to an evening slot and make a weekend of it!
7. Enjoy Halloween!
If there’s one annual celebration where you can really get into the ghoulish spirit of things, it’s Halloween! Root around your dressing-up box and find your scariest outfit – all the better if you have a competition to try and win!
8. Plan Your Days
With the days getting shorter, it’s easy to curl up in bed and try a spot of hibernating. To lessen the blow, try planning your week with interspersed fun activities and chores.
9. Travel to Reykjavik
The snow… The views… The chance of seeing The Northern Lights… Reykjavik, Iceland is a pretty spectacular place! Autumn for us also marks the start of their official winter season, so get your thermals ready!
10. Try a New Look
It’s time to sort out your wardrobe, pop the summer clothes away for the year and try a whole new style! We’re thinking fashionable overcoats, chunky knits and a perfectly smart autumn boot.
11. Embrace Bonfire Night
Fireworks, warming drinks, toffee apples – it’s bonfire night! Check out what events are happening in your area and celebrate!
