Now Summer’s over you’re probably wondering how you’re supposed to replace the fun of sunbathing, dipping your feet in the sea and soaking up the sun in the pub garden. Whilst Autumn isn’t great for catching some rays, there’s still lots of fun you can have this season with my list of 22 fun Autumn activities.
