Thetford Forest has been named one of the best places in the UK to see autumn colour.

It was included in a list in The Telegraph ranking areas of the UK that rival New England's autumnal colours.

The article said: "A happy combination of heath and lowland forest which straddles the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, Thetford Forest is a photogenic pretender.

"At every glance, it is a natural joy, dominated by evergreen pine trees, but also alive with oak, maple and walnut inhabitants."

The publication also recommended visiting the Go Ape adventure zone hanging high up in the trees.

Thetford Forest sits on an 18,730-hectare patch and contains an array of pathways and attractions.

The High Lodge outdoor play area is a family favourite and the Mildenhall Warren and Lynford Arboretum are a good spot for history and heritage lovers.

The Telegraph's list highlighted eight other UK spots including the Isle of Lewis, the Wye Valley and the New Forest National Park.
