We can all agree that autumn is the best season, right? Summer may have its plus points, but if we’re being honest with ourselves, our country isn’t built for the heat and neither are many of us. We’ve already discussed getting the most of this year’s September sunshine in the UK. But now that’s almost over for another year, let’s look forward to the season of hot chocolate, warm coats and kicking leaves in the park. And what better way to celebrate the onset of autumn than by booking a mini break? Here are our top tips on doing your autumn mini break the UK way…
Stick with the City Sights
As lovely as autumn can be, we can readily admit the weather will be unreliable. To be honest, we’re going to mention this a fair amount throughout this blog post. First up when it comes to weather-themed tips is to pick a suitably picturesque and activity-filled UK city to visit. We’re certainly not short of a few.
The main draw of visiting a city is that there’s plenty to do indoors. The perfect excuse to top up your autumn/winter wardrobe by visiting the many shops, taking afternoon tea in a posh hotel or visiting one of our many world class museums. York ticks many of these boxes with its compact historical city centre and National Rail Museum, or why not take a trip to Scotland to visit the newly-opened V&A Dundee? All guaranteed to keep you out of the rain, and Activity Superstore voucher codes have lots of short break suggestions with lots of (indoor) extras included if you want some more inspiration.
Or Find an Autumn Break in the Countryside
But that’s not to say other parts of the UK landscape don’t have their autumnal advantages too. When we think of autumn, we often thinking of curling up in front a roaring fire and for some reason, that fire always seems to be in a country house hotel or cosy lodge. Basically, it’s situated somewhere in the great outdoors. As long as you’re prepared to spend some of your autumn mini break time inside that warm and cosy accommodation, may we suggest a getaway to the Lake District, the Cotswolds or perhaps even the Highlands if you’re feeling very brave.
Last Minute Weather Check
If you’ve stumbled across this post with the intention of booking a break at the very last minute, then there are lots of sites that can help. LateRooms.com discount codes for example, can bring up lots of cheap options within seconds of searching. But may we make yet another weather-related suggestion? If you’re an outdoorsy sort who wants a weekend full of walks and wellies, just do a quick weather forecast check first. And if your location of choice has showers or worse on the cards, well then, we’re not short of beautiful countryside here in the UK and we’re sure you can find somewhere a bit drier for the same dates.
Go Abroad Instead?
And finally, there’s nothing more British than sacking the whole thing off and booking a short break abroad instead, right? So if the autumnal attractions of the UK aren’t floating your boat right now, pay a visit to Lastminute.com promo codes to see what short notice European city breaks they have available for a very tempting price.
So now you’ve booked your autumn mini break, you need to pack. If you need gear to prepare for your weekend away, be it in the UK or overseas, here at My Favourite Voucher Codes we got lots of new discounts for autumn fashion that can save you money on new season stock. Perfect if you want some new waterproofs for that countryside hike, or stylish winter boots for your night out in a city restaurant. And now you’re all set for that memorable autumn mini break in the UK!
