Although most Halloween events were cancelled last year due to the pandemic, pumpkin patches were able to stay open — with many selling out.
Pumpkin picking is just one of many Halloween events taking place in Suffolk this year.
So here are five places in Suffolk you can spend the day pumpkin picking:
Southwold Maize Maze
Southwold Maize Maze, which is more commonly known for its mazes, opens up its pumpkin patch at Halloween and also offers a children's play area, bouncy pillows and go-karts.
The pumpkin patch is very popular and did sell out last year so it is best to book early to avoid disappointment.
Where: Old Hall Farm, Halesworth Road, Reydon, Southwold, IP18 6SG
Cost: Free admission to the pumpkin pick but tickets must be purchased online for the maize maze.
The Undley pumpkin Patch and Maize Maze, which was named the most instagrammable pumpkin patch in the whole of East Anglia, offers a themed maze, giant inflatables, face painting and seasonal craft stalls.
