Things to do in Hampshire October

October is just such a wondrous month. Perhaps my favourite? There’s lots of lovely things to do to enjoy Hampshire from the city to the countryside and we’re blessed with plenty of farms for pumpkin picking.

This is one of my favourite seasons from the fresh nip of the air to the crisp crunch of leaves underfoot, Autumn heralds darker nights, cooler days and cosy vibes.

Harvest colours permeate our screen through fashion, food and art leaving a warm glow as we wave goodbye to summer for another year.

It’s a great time for exploring the county too, there’s loads of events on and not just Halloween ones. Although I can’t help but love it when people begin to embrace this aspect of the season. Long term members of this community will already be aware that I love the magic of Halloween.

Enjoying this season is my priority and these ideas are to help you have an excellent weekend. Perhaps I can encourage you to try something a little different or experience something new?

October mean’s it’s Halloween Witches so before we look at other events, here’s a section dedicated to pumpkin picking locations across Hampshire.
