We hate to be the bearer of bad news but summer’s over. Yet with the onset of autumn comes a wealth of new style opportunities, which we’ve embraced in our new collection for AW18 and we advise you to take the opportunity to refresh your wardrobe now for the incoming season.
The cooler weather and shorter days also means that many of our most popular domestic tourist destinations are not only quieter at this time of year, but also bathed in a different light. Here are our top five autumnal destinations for your UK getaway this season.
Giant’s Causeway, Co. Antrim
County Antrim’s UNESCO World Heritage Site is stunning throughout the year, but the brisk climate and sepia tint of autumn particularly suits a trip to this iconic volcanic anomaly. The geometric symmetry of the rock formation is utterly unlike anything else in Britain or Ireland, and truly a sight to behold.
Seven Sisters, East Sussex
These dramatic, rolling cliffs, looming over the sea along England’s south coast, are the star of countless images of these islands. Tranquil and stately, their serene stillness contrasts sharply with the tumult of the waves below, making for an unforgettable landscape to explore in the near-desertion of the autumn off-season.
Pembrokeshire, West Wales
A cluster of underrated gems of the British coast, the swathes of crag and beach that line the fringe of South West Wales are as expansive as they are criminally underexplored. One of the westernmost areas in mainland Britain, Pembrokeshire is sparsely populated in peak season; as the nights draw in and the mercury creeps downwards, this ancient county becomes an almost private haven, far away from the hubbub of urban life.
Barleycove, County Cork, Ireland
Barleycove beach is a green watered jewel, pincered by long rolling dunes that rise over stunning white sands. It is a perfect end of season destination, welcoming the coming autumn breeze but enhanced by the sunsets of the shortening days – you will be hard pressed to find something as romantic dotted across the Atlantic coast.
