Autumn is a beautiful time of year, especially here in the UK. The leaves start to change colour, the air gets a little crisper, and there’s nothing better than cosying up in a pub or a cosy cafe with friends after a long walk. Walking is also great for our well-being, so what better way to spend some time this Autumn than by getting out and about on one of our walking breaks.
Why We Love Autumn walks
There are plenty of reasons to love hiking in the autumn months. Here are just a few:
- The scenery is full of colour and vibrancy. There’s something special about seeing the leaves changing colour as you walk through the countryside.
- As winter draws in with it’s darker nights it is good to make time for your loved ones. So many of us live alone and what better way to enjoy company than walking outside and connecting with old and new friends?
- We all know that exercise is good for us, but sometimes it’s hard to motivate ourselves to get out and do it. Walking in a group is a great way to be encouraged.
We also like the chance to do a little foraging – finding those wild blackberries or maybe even some mushrooms if you know what you’re looking for. We love seasonal food and autumn apples are a lovely addition to the autumn packed lunch!

We know how popular pilgrimages are, and this Autumn, we bring you a special one on the south coast of England – the St Augustine Way covering 19 miles from Ramsgate to Canterbury. A chance to walk with a small group of women, of any or no faith, through the beautiful Kent countryside learning about the ancient pilgrims and having your own time to reflect as you walk.
