Autumn is a wonderful time to explore Exmoor and blow away the cobwebs. Take a walk through the colourful landscape and enjoy the crunch of fallen leaves under your feet. Plan your route at one of the Exmoor National Park visitor centres.

  Culture and heritage

Explore the wilderness of Exmoor, with its landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland. There’s plenty of history in the hills and trips to Dunster Castle or Cleeve Abbey are great reminders of how the area’s past lives on today.


The famous National Park is the perfect place to get outdoors and explore nature, or head to Exmoor Zoo to see wildlife from around the world. Take a trip back in time on the stunning Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, and enjoy a drink at the cafe at the top.

Explore the beautiful countryside.
Indulge in a cream tea with scones and cake.

  Food and drink

Local specialities like Exmoor Jersey Blue cheese and cider can be found across the region and are well worth a try. And you’ll also find plenty of great little  pubs, cafés and independent delis and restaurants, serving delicious local produce.

  Sport and outdoors

Exmoor’s a fantastic place to get active. Go to the national park for activities like cycling, kayaking, horse riding, mountain biking or coasteering. Or, pull on your walking boots and explore the miles of footpaths and bridleways, taking you through woodland, rivers and moorland.

  Music and nightlife

You'll find some lovely traditional pubs in Exmoor to while away the evenings. We recommend trying the Pebbles Tavern, Dolphin Inn and Badgers Holt Inn. Head to the bigger towns outside of the park for a more lively night time scene.


You’ll find a good selection of shops in Minehead, Dulverton and other towns. The smaller shops are one of the best things about the region, giving you plenty of options for when you’re looking to pick up a souvenir or take away some local produce.
