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 grab a pumpkin from 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, although popular corn mazes and other activities may be closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Rules have changed and group bookings are limited to six (or fewer) – plus you'll need to book before you go. And with reduced numbers, tickets may be sold out. We'd recommend checking out the website of the farm you're planning to visit for all the latest updates.
