Our Top Tips for Pumpkin Picking This Autumn
Pumpkin picking should be a super fun autumn activity that has no stress involved! Which is why we’re listing our top tips for an easy day out pumpkin picking in London:
- Pre-book tickets: Most pumpkin patches require you to pre-book tickets, so there’s no waiting for queues and it’s an easier day out for everyone. So, please check before heading out to a pumpkin patch!
- Wear suitable shoes: From personal experience, pumpkin picking can get a little messy! With it being on a farm, there’s lots of grassy areas that may have gotten muddy from the rain, so wear some wellies or boots you don’t mind getting a little dirty.
- Bring boxes or strong bags: We suggest bringing sturdy bags to carry your pumpkins in, just in case the pumpkin patch doesn’t provide any wheelbarrows.
- Don’t forget to bring some money: If you fancy treating yourself or the kids, take some money with you because more often than not pumpkin patches will have delicious starts on offer! From food trucks and desserts, to fairground rides and more.
Most importantly have fun!
