With the nights drawing in and the days much shorter, it’s not unusual to spend more time indoors. But regardless of the season, it’s one of the favourite times of the year because it brings new hope with harvest and this is the only time of the year where you can see the changing colours of Autumn.
So how can you enjoy Autumn? Here are a few tips to get you by:
- Make your outdoor space inviting. The season’s is a good time to decorate your garden, patio or balcony. If you are creative, it’s now a good time to get some inspiration too.
- With the disappearance of summer and the arrival of shorter days and longer nights, there’s still plenty to do outdoors this season. Spend some time with friends and family admiring the beauty the season brings. Watch the transition of leaves, from green to red or orange to yellow. Conkers and Sycamore seeds are all around us, while the autumnal feel allows us to get around easily without feeling too warm.
Here are a few parks for strolling:
Watch the Pelicans being fed in the afternoon and look out for birds, Owls woodpeckers and bats. And of course, don’t miss the Horse Guards Parade nearby and the changing of the guards or simply have lunch in the park.
Enjoy an Autumn stroll with children and let them run around in the open space. Continue walking along the Mall and discover Buckingham palace.
