17+ Places To Go Pumpkin Picking Near London

If you are looking to do something festive in Autumn, there are plenty of places to go Pumpkin picking near London.

Aside from pumpkin picking, so many of the farms have other things to do, including playgrounds, corn mazes, and treasure hunts, to name a few. So it’s possible to make a day of it!

With it being October (fingers crossed), the weather won’t be too cold to stay out and explore the farm!

It has become quite the craze in London to pick pumpkins in autumn leading up to Halloween over the last few years.

In response to this increasing popularity, pumpkin patches and pick-your-own farms have been popping up all over the perimeters of London.

If you are looking for other Halloween events in London, check out this comprehensive list of things to do in London for Halloween this year.

Pumpkin picking near London

Most of the pumpkin picking near London, is on the far outskirts of Greater London, into places like Surrey, Colchester, Kingston, Kent and St Albans for example.

For a detailed rundown of all the Pumpkin Picking sites in Essex click here.

We have included a map at the end of this post to show you exactly where the farms are so you can easily identify your nearest pumpkin patch.

Therefore, whether you live in North, West, South or East London, you shouldn’t have to travel to the other side of the city, we have covered all angles and tried to include as much information about getting there as possible. There is a map below to show you exactly where the farms are.

Public transportation out of London can be challenging since most pumpkin patches are located in the countryside. Driving is the best option or carpooling with friends! Especially as carrying a pumpkin back might be difficult!

If you don’t have a car but have a license, I’ve always found Zipcar a great option for an impromptu day out.

You can pay for the number of hours you use rather than by day, and generally speaking, they are available nearby, possibly even on your street!

It’s a little like Air BnB for cars. Your neighbour might rent their car out on this platform! You don’t even need to pick up keys, you can open the car through the app.

The app might take a little while to set up since they have to clarify your driver’s license & ID, so do it a few days in advance.

So, without further ado, here are the places you can go pumpkin picking near London.
