Thorpe Park Fright Nights

A theme park that is a favourite among adults thanks to its incredible rides, Thorpe Park is hosting Fright Nights for more than a month this year. Running from 28th September to 3rd November, the theme park will be open until 10pm each night, challenging you to ride some of the scariest rides for the Halloween inspired event. The rain will be the last thing on your mind by the time you leave!

Brooklands Concorde Experience

This is the perfect indoor experience for those who want to climb aboard an actual Concorde airliner. The 35 minute tour gives insights into the rise and fall of the Concorde, a 4D film and the opportunity to sit in real Concorde passenger seats.

Windsor Great Park

Not just a summer pastime, the carriage rides in Windsor Great Park run during the cooler months too. With canopy covers for when it rains and blankets to snuggle under, grab a hot chocolate and enjoy the sights of this vast park from a privileged position.

Theatre Royal Windsor

Perfect whatever the weather, Theatre Royal Windsor has an array of shows on to suit all tastes this autumn. From Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap (21st to 26th October) and Footloose (29th October to 2nd November), to a show dedicated to Luther Vandross (13th October) and The Nutcracker ballet (12th to 16th November), you can really take your pick!

Elizabethan cookery at Hampton Court

Taking place inside King Henry VIII’s actual kitchens, join history cooks during weekends up until 20th October to discover the Tudor treats previously served at the palace. The kitchens continued to be used by Elizabeth I – Henry VIII’s daughter – and you’ll see the delicacies that were prepared during her era.

Events at Windsor Castle

Enjoy a visit with a difference to the oldest occupied castle in the world and book tickets for special talks and performances taking place this autumn. Hear about Prince Albert’s personality and impact on Windsor Castle from a historian and broadcaster on 19th November or enjoy an evening of immersive dance and drama in the State Apartments to celebrate 500 years of Leonardo da Vinci.

Liquid Leisure Windsor

If it’s raining outside this autumn, why not get even wetter? Liquid Leisure has a number of water activities taking place on its lakes right up until 3rd November. Traverse the inflatable aqua park, go on a banana boat ride or embark on a cable water sports experience. Suitable for all ages – adventures and plenty of laughs await!
