This year we decided to get all spooky and into Halloween and were looking for some exciting things to do in the London & Essex area. First thing on the agenda was pumpkin picking, and we found a great patch at Foxes Farm offering this for free in two locations, Basildon and Colchester.
If you’re travelling in London this is a bit further afield (excuse the pun!) but definitely worth doing and great if you’re on a budget. You can also get direct trains from London to either destination.
We had picked the perfect day for it, beautifully sunny with that cold, crisp winter feeling, and surprisingly we had more fun than we expected! We spent a couple of hours picking our pumpkins, strolling through the corn fields and of course getting some fab photos! You can also grab a wizard burger or eerie sausage roll from the food stall.
With the pumpkins starting from just £1 we would definitely recommend visiting Foxes Farm this week, it’s fab for families and couples looking for something new to do! They’re open from 10am – 4pm all half term, and it’s definitely a better experience than selecting your pumpkin from a supermarket!
Happy Halloween Travellers!
