Autumn in the North East

Watching as the leaves turn from green to gold, feeling the crunch of fallen leaves beneath your feet, enjoying harvest produce and breathing in crisp, earthy air. Autumn is the season when nature puts on its greatest show. It’s the perfect time of the year to pull on your wellies and explore the North East. Here are our top things to do this autumn.

Share your adventures with us.

We love to see your pictures of the places in our care. If you’re out and about exploring this autumn, share your colourful pictures on social media using the hashtag #EveryoneNeedsNature and we’ll re-post our favourites. It was our founders' vision to open up natural spaces for everyone to feel uplifted in their daily lives. And 125 years later, we're still caring for green spaces so people can take some time to pause, make memories with loved ones and ultimately feel calmer through the outdoors.
