Memories are made here in the South West: classic coastline, tropical gardens, iconic monuments and the great outdoors.
Autumn brings an array of golds, reds and oranges to the outdoors. The South West is home to some great spots to watch autumn colour develop. Choose from ancient landscapes, dramatic coastline, varied parkland and formal gardens.
There's also a brilliant selection of events, cosy tea-rooms to warm up in and shops full to the brim with tempting products.

Take a trip to Castle Drogo and see first hand the work being done to protect the castle and make it watertight for the first time.
Castle Drogo is also home to the National Trust's highest garden; a great place to see changing autumn colour and a starting point for exploring the Teign Valley.
