Things to do in November

As we move into the colder months, there are lots of opportunities for autumnal adventures in history with us.

Catch an early glimpse of Father Christmas or stargaze at the Home of Charles Darwin with our events throughout the month. Wrap up warm to enjoy a walk in our historic gardens and parks, ablaze with autumn colour, or find inspiration indoors at a castle, house or palace.

Wherever your interests lie, there's something for you to explore in England's story this November.

Victorian winter warmers

As the colder nights draw in, November is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen – with a Victorian twist! With the guidance of Mrs Crocombe at Audley End House, have a go at some authentic Victorian recipes. 

Brew the perfect cup of tea, bake some Victorian biscuits, or cook up a curry worthy of Queen Victoria for your family.
