Banff, Canada

When you think about Canada, your mind conjures images of blue lakes, snowy mountain peaks and lush forests of evergreen trees. Welcome to Banff, the picture-postcard location in the province of Alberta, Canada. Banff is home to a number of historic sites, a 6,500 sq km parkland with native wildlife including elk and grizzlies and when the time is right, impressive displays of the Northern Lights which dance across the night sky. All in all, a truly magical getaway!

Known as the Panda Capital of China, Chengdu, the Sichuan province capital, has grown in popularity in recent years. With beautiful, tranquil waterways reflecting the striking skyline of traditional Chinese buildings and towering skyscrapers, it’s not hard to see why! The city is expansive and has plenty to see and do during the day and night, yet is more relaxing than other popular destinations like Beijing. Could Chengdu become the new Shanghai?

Lanzarote, Spain

While the island is administered by Spain, it actually lies off the coast of Africa and stays warm long into the European winter, with temperatures averaging between 23-26 degrees Celsius during October and November. Born from dramatic volcanic eruptions, the island has plenty of beautiful sights to admire and explore, from the incredible Jameos del Agua volcanic cave system to the Timanfaya National Park, complete with geysers.

Salzburg, Austria

With views overlooking the striking Eastern Alps, Salzburg is a fantastic location to visit this autumn. The city is the fourth-largest in Austria and boasts some incredible architecture, from Salzburg Cathedral to the Mirabell Palace and accompanying pristine gardens. Stand atop this romantic city and let the inspiring, breath-taking views wash over you.

Here are just four of our top eight locations to visit this autumn; keep checking back for the final four! So, hold off on those winter blues, pack your bags and take off somewhere, whether you are chasing the winter sun, looking to refresh your productivity or simply hoping to experience a new destination with plenty to see and do. We can’t recommend these locations enough for keeping you active and entertained before the year is out, so pick up your favourite London lifestyle magazine and treat yourself to a last-minute holiday!
