Best pumpkin patches near London
Pumpkin season is upon us: soon, we'll be dressing like pumpkins (well, at least our kids will be), turning them into soups and pies and carving them for Halloween.
While anyone can go grab a pumpkin from the shop floor at ASDA, nothing beats an actual pick your own pumpkin patch experience. In addition to the glorious smiles on your children's faces and teaching them that crucial life lesson of where food actually comes from, it will – bonus – also tire the kids out.
There are plenty of fabulous farms within an hour’s drive of London that offer kids (and their parents) a pick-your-own experience, often with other veg available, as well as cafés, playgrounds and activities on-site.
