European Places That Get Even Better In Autumn

As the nights start closing in, many people imagine that the holiday season is over. But autumn can make for some beautiful holidays. Not only does scenery become more dramatic, but often prices are much cheaper and places are less crowded. Here are our top autumn escapes:

Amsterdam

As the hen do and stag season ends, Amsterdam becomes even more charming. Wander the canals and take in cultural sites such as the Van Gough museum and the home of Anne Frank. Rent a bike and explore the famous Vondelpark while the leaves are vibrant and colourful.

Bruges

This old fashioned town in Belgium is a perfect place to indulge in cosy winter sightseeing. There are a number of sites to pitch up with easy access to the main tourist areas. Of course, Belgium is famous for its confectionery, so make sure you get in a mug or two of delicious hot chocolate.

Bordeaux

If colder months make curling up with a glass of wine seem even more inviting, where better to do it than the French town of Bordeaux. Drive past the traditional vineyards and take in the gourmet cuisine of this famous area.

Berlin

The iconic German city has two Festival of Lights in October, making it a must see destination over Autumn. The tree lined Museum island and Tiergarten park by the Brandenburg gate are stunning at this time of year. Plus, once you’re done exploring you can warm up with a currywurst or steiner of traditional German beer.

England

Of course, we couldn’t leave out our home country. Close to our dealership, Blackpool is home to the famous Illuminations from September, so you can wrap up and take a stroll on the boardwalk with some fish and chips. Further away, bonfire night celebrations can be truly spectacular. Skinningrove Bonfire in Yorkshire sees the town set fire to a huge sculpture each year followed by an impressive fireworks display.
