Not so fast Winter! You can keep your TV nights-in and hunkering around the fire. We’ve got months until Christmas and we’re just not ready to swap the festival spirit for the festive one right now!

You can also win a 2 Night family break at any one of our Welcome Break Ramada hotels! To enter simply follow the Facebook link* below and tell us your favourite Autumn destination.

Dating back over 700 years, the Goose Fair is one of Europe’s most famous traveling fairs.

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Hull

Admission fees apply.

2017 is running out fast, so make the trip to enjoy the best of Hull’s celebration as the UK City of Culture. You’ll find everything from contemporary art, dance and theatre to classical music, food and comedy. If you can’t convince the kids to sample of a bit of culture, you could always tempt them with a trip to the astounding aquarium or the Hull Fair (October 6th–14th).

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Blackpool

Blackpool Seafront. Admission fees apply to shows.

The Las Vegas of the North is now brimming in light each night until 5th November. The big switch-on saw crowds of over 100,000 swarm the promenade this year, so it’s well worth the trip. And whilst you’re there, grab one of the many shows, including tribute acts and famous comedians. Get there before the end of September and you’ll catch the World Firework Championship displays each Friday night.

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Scaresville

Kentwell House. October 4th–November 4th. Admission fees apply – parties of 8-12 (min age 14 years).

Not for the faint-hearted and not for kids either! Scaresville is a great way to celebrate the run-in to Halloween, if you can get yourself to Suffolk this October. Teams of 8-12 people are guided through dimly lit buildings, woods and parkland as they’re subjected to an onslaught of frights, ghouls and ghostly experiences, all leaping from nowhere. We’ve not experienced this one yet, but you can bet some of us will find a brave face and make the trip.

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Belsay_Hall

October 21st–29th. Admission fees apply.

Something a lot more family friendly for Halloween can be found at Belsay Hall’s Pumpkin Week, Northumberland. This beautiful English Heritage venue boasts a Grecian mansion, Medieval castle and a 20 acre garden. For Halloween, younger families will enjoy a spooky trail and some “creepy crafts”. There’s a choice of Halloween events across English Heritage sites this October, so take a look at their website for more details.

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Matlock_Bath

September to October. Admission fees apply to Gulliver’s Kingdom.

Pick a region of England to enjoy the Autumn and the Peak District sits comfortably in the top 5. Situated close to the heart of England, the national park is lot more accessible than the Lakes or Scotland and just as spectacular. We’ve picked the beautiful village of Matlock Bath as a perfect destination. With Gulliver’s Kingdom open right through to the end of half-term holidays for the kids, you can also enjoy a fantastic firework display every Saturday evening throughout September and October.

WB_Autumn_17_Blog_Mini_Header_Comedy

October 6th–15th. Admission fees apply.

And finally, something for the belly laughs. The Birmingham Comedy Festival, launched in 2001, will offer the perfect antidote to the fading daylight. With top billing comedians including Greg Davies, the sensational “Impractical Jokers” and up-and-coming stand-up talent, there will be comedy to suit all tastes! Absolutely guaranteed to beat that coming Winter gloom!
