Before long the ground will be covered in leaves, woolly jumpers will emerge from hibernation and the dreaded countdown to Christmas will be on, which can mean only one thing: it’s almost Autumn!
As one of the most scenic and activity-packed times of the year, Autumn is bursting at the seams with incredible things to see and do for couples. While those colder mornings call for extra snuggles in bed, there’s an abundance of romantic things to get up to once you venture outside.
So, in the spirit of the season, here are our favourite romantic things for you and your other half to do this Autumn.
A date at the ice rink
Staring into each other’s eyes as you glide across the ice hand-in-hand…. what could be more romantic than that? Just be ready to offer a helping hand in case your partner takes a tumble!
While most ice rinks open in late Autumn and winter, some open their doors earlier so jump on Google, find one nearby and spend an hour or two perfecting your skating with the one you love.
Take a stroll in the park or woods
As the leaves turn distinctly golden, what better way to enjoy the great outdoors than taking a scenic stroll? Head for the local park or wander through the woods and take in the beauty of Autumn as the crisp, fresh air hits your lungs.
As well as a time of celebration, Bonfire Night offers a great opportunity to enjoy a romantic evening with your other half. Sit back and relax beneath the night sky as the fireworks provide the perfect backdrop to your loved-up evening.
As the nights get longer but the cold chill of winter is yet to set in, Autumn is the perfect time to head to the hills for a spot of stargazing. Take a cosy blanket and some hot chocolate and leave your significant other seeing stars… literally!
Pumpkin Pickin’ and Carvin’
Let’s face it, we’re all bored of dinner and movie dates so think outside the box and treat your date to a fun and memorable day out pumpkin picking instead. Once you’ve uncovered your find, it’s time to grab your carving gear and unleash your creative side. 10-points for the one who can make the best Jack-o’-lantern!
