This week sees us going back to school and my thoughts are already turning to all the fun things that Autumn in London brings. We love living in London and are spoilt for choice with autumnal things to see and do. This autumn we are really looking forward to visiting a pumpkin patch. I know that’s it’s a bit American but it’s a tradition I’m happy to adopt. We’ve enjoyed trips to lavender farms and a sunflower farm, and this year we will be looking for a pumpkin patch near London.
Where are the best places to pick pumpkins near London?
You probably won’t be surprised to hear that there are no pumpkin farms in London! However, living in one of the outer boroughs means we are within easy reach of some great farms, pop up farms and farm shops, which will be opening their pumpkins patches this autumn.
Top of our list to visit is The Pop Up Farm. We had a great visit to their Sunflower Festival last week and they were advertising their pumpkin patch. It is is as well organised as the Sunflower Festival we will be expecting Instagram opportunities everywhere, and hopefully something cool cooked on their special combine harvester barbecue.
