Pumpkin Picking, Manchester

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
With the spooky season almost upon us, it's time to drag out those Halloween costumes and get your pumpkin carving knives at the ready. And if you're looking to go the extra mile this year, why not grab the kids and head off to hunt for pumpkins yourself!


Pumpkin picking is a great day out for little or big kids, and we've found three places in and around Manchester that offer this brilliant activity. Children will love choosing their very own pumpkin to take home and at the same time will get to enjoy a whole host of other Halloween fun!
