Although the UK’s summer is drawing to a close, there are still plenty of opportunities for a wonderful trip in the great outdoors.
Camping in autumn can be truly beautiful, you just need to make sure you’re prepared for the cooler temperatures and changeable weather that this season typically brings. If you’re keen to make use of your camping gear a few more time this year, take a look at the advice offered by Out and About Live.
The publication notes that you’ll want a three-season sleeping bag and “perhaps even duvets and fleece blankets” if you’re staying under canvas at this time of the year. You also need to ensure you have plenty of warm clothes with you.
One tip worth remembering is to set off for your destination early in the day. You shouldn’t leave it too late to arrive at your campsite otherwise you’ll have the challenge of pitching a tent in the dark.
Stock up on spare batteries and lights to make sure you don’t end up left in the dark as the nights draw in. Make a list of camping supplies in the UK that you need before you go to ensure you’re prepared.
