With just under a month until the end of the autumn season, there are still a lot of things to enjoy before we transition into winter, whether you’re looking for something to do with your children, yourself or as a family, we’ve got you covered with 5 of the best autumn activities to help you make the most of the weeks we have in this beautiful time of year.
Nothing like embracing the fresh outdoor air as the weather cools and leaves turn orange. There are plenty of outdoor activities that you can enjoy this autumn including nature walks in Ravenscourt Park or even by Hammersmith Bridge. All ages can enjoy the fresh air and adventure of the outdoors, as adults can relax and enjoy the scenery, while children can play in the fallen leaves and enjoy the fresh air.
A walking tour could be an exciting activity to do this autumn. Hammersmith BID privilege card holders can enjoy a free guided tour on the first Saturday of each month, where they can explore Hammersmith Broadway’s rich history and heritage. The one-hour walk will then be followed by refreshments at a local pub.
The best way to get into the autumn mood is to cook delicious autumnal food. We all enjoy our festive drinks from our local coffee shops, but the smell of homemade food can increase your excitement for the colder nights ahead. Keeping warm with homemade soup in the colder months is a sure way to keep the family happy. Maybe you want to make your own toffee apple? Picking the apples yourself, creating the toffee and seeing the creation come to life! Its something for the whole family to enjoy.
A great craft idea is wreath making. They make a great feature for any home, perfect come Christmas and towards the end of December. You can create your wreath however you like and some types of wreaths you can create include a berry wreath, sunflower wreath, leaf wreath, and many more.
Family game night
Even if the weather isn’t ideal, a family game night is always a great way to pass the time. Monopoly, Cluedo, and uno are among the classic games you can play with your family. There are games for all ages to enjoy, regardless of who is taking part. Bring out your favourite board game or your thinking caps for a game of charades this autumn.
