Urban Stays – Hotel du Vin Cambridge
Walk the cobbled streets of Cambridge or punt the River Cam as the autumn mists dissipate and take in the changing colours of the leaves across the city and university campus as well as in Cambridge Botanical Gardens. The hotel is also a great base to head out to Wicken Fen which shines gold in the autumn light across its grassland habitat. Also a few miles south of the city centre is Wandlebury Country Park with 60 acres of woodland.
Urban Stays – One Devonshire Gardens by Hotel du Vin Glasgow
Walk down Glasgow’s streets to take in the city in all its autumn glory mere steps from the hotel. Or hop on a train or take a short drive from Glasgow to bask in the autumn glory of one of many of the region’s stunning areas of natural beauty such as The Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.
