With less than a month until Halloween, it's officially time to get into the spooky spirit and go pumpkin picking.

Whether you're wanting them to do some creepy carving or you're just looking for an Instagrammable day out, these are the best patches in Wiltshire.

Picking your own pumpkins is a fun activity for all ages especially as a Halloween day out with the family.

We've put together a list of some local farms offering Pick Your Own (PYO) along with other spootacular activities and events.
