Whether you're a fan of American Football or just want to experience the unique NFL atmosphere, this autumn's NFL matches at Twickenham are a must. You can watch the Arizona Cardinals vs the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday 22nd October, or the Minnesota Vikings vs the Cleveland Browns on 29th October, and enjoy a sport which is becoming increasingly more popular for spectators in the UK.

2017's London Film Festival will play host to more than 240 films, shown over the twelve-day celebration of all things moviemaking. With a huge variety of films being promoted and celebrated, there is definitely something for everyone. From the much-heralded directorial debut of Andy Serkis in 'Breathe', to the snappy politically charged comedy 'The Party', which was filmed during the Brexit referendum, this is an opportunity to see something that you wouldn't usually have come across this autumn, at a venue near you.
Whether you're a fan of craft beers, traditional ales, IPAs, or you just love it all, a brewery tour might just be the ideal way for you to spend a few hours of downtime this autumn. With dozens of breweries to choose from in the London area, you can take your pick depending on your favourite tipple. From microbreweries to large distilleries on a tour, you can find our how the various drinks get their trademark flavours; but of course, the most important part of the day is the tasting!
5. Wrap up for a woodland walk with friends or family
Nothing quite beats a bit of fresh air and quality time with those we love. Take a stroll through any park or woodland this autumn and enjoy the striking colours of falling leaves and the beautiful surroundings. Then head home to warm up in front of a cosy fire with a hot chocolate, or something a little stronger perhaps. A perfect day!
