Best pumpkin patches near London for a family day out
Halloween is going to look wildly different this year, but there's one tradition we're looking forward to: a family trip to the pumpkin patch.
While anyone can go grab a pumpkin from the shop floor at ASDA, nothing beats an actual pick your own pumpkin patch experience.
There are plenty of fabulous farms within an hour-and-a-half's drive of London that offer kids (and their parents) a pick-your-own experience, often with other veg available, as well as cafés and playgrounds on-site, although popular corn mazes and other activities may be closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Rules have changed and group bookings are limited to 6 (or fewer) - plus you'll need to book ahead of going. We'd recommend checking out the website of the farm you're planning to visit for all the latest updates and regulations.
