Reasons we love autumn



Just before writing this, I went outside and it felt so warm! You can hardly believe that it’s the middle of October, it still feels a bit summery. I’m really looking forward to getting woolly jumpers out, making hot chocolate, and chilling with a movie (and of course, keeping up with the studying!). But there’s so many more reasons to love autumn. Here’s a few of my favourites.


Autumn is just a season full of celebrations. We look forward to Halloween, then Bonfire Night and then we can all start talking about Christmas. Bonfire night is one of my favourite nights of the year (though I also think it’s a strange thing to celebrate), but the firework displays, warm fires, and toasting marshmallows is always a great way to spend one (or more) of your evenings during autumn. There’s always lots of festivals and events going on during autumn around Ipswich, so see if there’s something on that you might enjoy.

Beautiful scenery

The colours and wildlife that you can see during autumn make it worth going out for walks during this time of year. Here are some walks some that I found a couple of weeks ago. The parks around Ipswich will be beautiful at this time of year with the leaves changing colour and new wildlife around. Take time to enjoy it now, before the really cold weather kicks in.

The changes

Have you ever noticed during late October and early November all the spider webs around? These look great in the morning dew when they’re glistening in the sunlight (think of those Instagram pics!). Autumn is a season full of changes, and it’s great to watch how much happens in such a short space of time.


Take some time out of uni life to go and explore the areas around Ipswich and see how they look in autumn. The many parks around Ipswich really change during this time of year, so take a walk around them. It’s a perfect way to spend a couple of hours after a day at uni.
