There is nothing better than going for a romantic stroll with your partner or even your new date, and we believe that Autumn is the most romantic season of all. The leaves are maturing and changing colour on the trees, there is a lovely crisp breeze in the air, you can wrap up in your favourite cosy knits and snuggle together with a good hot cuppa when the weather starts to turn.
Here are Made My Date’s Top Romantic Autumn Strolls for you to enjoy with your special someone! Don’t forget to tag us when you post your selfies together on social media!……
- Knole Country Park – Kent:
Part of the National Trust, this Sackville’s owned stately home is nestled in the heart of Kent’s last medieval deer parks. This is a beautiful spot for a romantic autumn stroll across the 1,000 acres of land that Knole sits in and in Autumn that means acres and acres of woodland to admire in rich Autumn hues. In October you can also attend the guided tours by the Deer Keeper, which is perfect for animal loving couples.
- Stroll along the canals in Little Venice – London:
If you’re looking for a romantic stroll but want to stay in London, a stroll along the canals in Little Venice is perfect. It’s easy to get to from Warwick Avenue Tube Station and takes approximately 2 hours to walk all the way around the canalside. This is a great spot if you both enjoy being by the water and it has plenty of wildlife and aquatic flowers surrounding it. There is a lot to see and do here, not to mention to take in the sights and sounds of boat life.
Why not take full advantage of this beautiful area by hiring a boat and taking in the autumn scenery as you cruise along the Regent’s Canal!
- Escape the hustle and bustle in Kyoto Gardens – London:
The Kyoto Garden was recently renovated by specialist Japanese gardeners who flew in from Japan especially for the restoration project since the pandemic. The Gardens have been designed in the style of ‘kaiyushiki’ which literally means ‘a stroll garden’ so it is perfect for a romantic stroll with your favourite person.
Based in Holland Park in Central London, the Kyoto Garden is easy to get to by public transport. Once you are both there, you are greeted by a beautiful Japanese garden full of exotic plants and trees, a pond full of wildlife and a delightfully peaceful waterfall.
- Gaping Gill Walk in the Yorkshire Dales:
For couples that enjoy hiking and long walks in challenging terrains, the Gaping Gill Walk in the Yorkshire Dales is a perfect stroll especially in the Autumn months.
There is so much to do and see here from the caves, to the gorge, to the walls themselves. This is a great location for a vigorous stroll across the hills with your partner where you can enjoy the vast landscape covered in the Autumn hues.
5. Cutty Sark & Greenwich Park, South East London:
This is a great location for a romantic autumnal stroll along the riverbank, through the shops, the market and the museums ending in the picturesque park of Greenwich Park. With a wide variety of things to do and see in the area, this can easily be a lovely autumnal date day out, however the hi-light of the date for a romantic autumn stroll has to be the road lined with cherry blossom trees near the cricket pitch that leads to the Ranger’s House. In Autumn you can see the nearby trees in beautiful autumnal tones, a real life picture perfect backdrop!
Couples can take a romantic leisurely stroll through the park to soak up the autumn colours as they transform from green to orange, whilst looking out for wildlife amongst the grasslands and trees. There are vast stunning views of Canary Wharf to admire as well as the Royal Observatory and the history behind the Prime Meridian Line.
