Autumn in Britain is truly stunning – the air turns crisp and the changing foliage burnishes our beautiful landscapes. No wonder Instagram is full of stunning pictures of our autumnal scenes! Here are some of our favourite photos shared @lovegreatbritain and the reasons we love autumn in Britain so much:

1. Of course: those leaves burnishing

 

2. The change in light and the striking skies

3. The pretty countryside and villages

 

4. The cosy cottages with log fires

 

 

5. The rainy days when you can stay in the pub…

 

 

 

6. …or curl your hands round a hot cuppa in a tea room

 

7. The sense of drama it adds to the architecture

 

8. The city breaks for that post-summer culture fix

 

9. The shopping in preparation for Christmas
