The hot summer months may already be a distant memory, but autumn is a great season. Wrap up warm ready for long walks in the countryside, snuggle next to a roaring fire and enjoy the last school half term holiday of the year. Take the chance to recharge and enjoy a break away before the Christmas countdown begins.
Need some inspiration for your autumn escape? Take a look at some suggested places to go and things to do this autumn.
Famous for its city walls, its 1000-year-old Cathedral and great shopping, the vibrant city has something for everyone. For families this October half term, why not visit the nearby Chester Zoo; it’s one of the UK's most visited zoos and is home to over 15,000 animals and if you book our Chester Zoo Attraction break your stay includes your entry tickets as well.
Hallmark Hotel Chester The Queen is just a stones throw from the train station, in the heart of all the action. The historic hotel is full character and charm, with spacious, comfortable bedrooms, traditional waiting room bar and modern restaurant.
If you book a two-night getaway and are looking to explore further, the bustling cities of Manchester and Liverpool are both just a train journey away.
As Scotland’s largest city, there’s plenty to keep you occupied during a break away to Glasgow. A city known for its style and culture and friendliness of its people, and much more. Explore the many museums and art galleries, see a live music event at the Scottish Event Campus and do a spot shopping. Even better, from the 9th November, the popular Christmas markets return to George Square and St Enoch Square. So book direct and explore Glasgow this autumn.
The historic railway hotel Hallmark Hotel Derby Midland is perfectly located for not only exploring Derby but also the surrounding Peak District National Park. Visit well known Dovedale and its famous stepping stones for a refreshing hike in the hilly countryside and make sure a visit to Chatsworth House is planned. From the stately home itself, to the gardens and farmyard, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy. The house is open until early November before it is transformed for Christmas so book your Chatsworth House break soon, so you don’t miss out.
Although Stratford-upon-Avon is famous for being William Shakespeare’s birthplace, there is so much more to discover; from a boat trip along the River Avon, taking in a play at the Royal Shakespeare theatre to discovering the UK's largest tropical butterfly paradise at Stratford Butterfly Farm.
For those feeling more energetic, take advantage of the cooler weather and book a Bike and Hike break at Hallmark Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon The Welcombe. Explore the gorgeous Warwickshire countryside, ramble through wooded glades and across gently rolling hills, take a relaxing stroll alongside the River Avon or cycle the Greenway to Long Marston. As a hectic day exploring, unwind in the state-of-art spa with a cooling leg and foot treatment.
For the keen golfer, our range of great value golf breaks are just the ticket. Combine playing a round or two on the 18-hole championship golf course with an overnight break including dinner and breakfast.
