A Night In London’s West End

My absolute favourite thing to do in London is visit the West End and see one of the world-famous shows that are on offer. Team it up with delicious German food, and it's starting to sound like my kind of night! Grand plans - well, grandish plans - were made to visit Portobello market around [...]

Brighton: Oh I Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside!

Getting up bright and early on a Bank Holiday Saturday is not my favourite thing, especially when I'm on the tail end of the busiest month of the year at work. But one thing I hate more than early mornings is traffic, and I will do nearly anything to avoid sitting in the car park [...]

Postcards from…The Shard

Panoramic views of London don't come much better than from The Shard, and on my recent visit to the viewing platforms on floors 68 and 69 I was lucky enough to have a clear day with superb views of the city. As a fan of sweeping, panoramic views of any city, I've visited my fair [...]

A Flying Visit To The Shard!

If there is a better way to see a city than up the highest building soaking up the panoramic views, then I am yet to find it. I took a trip on the London Eye with my family when I was younger, at a time I think it was still called the Millennium Wheel - [...]

Morning Coffee at Luton Hoo

Just a stone's throw from London, the impressive estate of Luton Hoo offers a chance to indulge in a spot of luxury. We're talking spa, afternoon tea, fancy dinner, top notch hotel kind of luxury. After sampling afternoon tea at Luton Hoo a couple of months ago, I was back on a sunny Sunday morning to [...]

London Lumiere

The light festival has come to London! After trying to find a way to make it to Amsterdam's light festival, I was thrilled to find out that London was hosting it's own light festival. After wanting to see Amsterdam's for so long, I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit one right on my doorstep. So [...]

Inside Temple Church
London

Temple Church, London

Just in case I hadn't already mentioned it - I love this church. I've shared the postcards I picked up while there and I wrote about how I ended up being able to see this church. It may not be on the same level of grandeur as Notre Dame, Westminster Abbey and Sagrada Famillia, but [...]

Postcard from…Temple Church

As if the inside of the church isn't stunning enough, the outside of Temple Church is just as interesting to look at! The level of detail on this hidden London church isn't on the same level as Sagrada Familia or Notre Dame, but it's the modesty and simplicity that make it so pretty. I had to [...]

Postcard from…Temple Church

I made my way into London last month for a family gathering, and found that not only was London hosting 'Open London', an event allowing the public into usually private places, but also that Temple Church was part of the event. I'd been wanting to visit the church for quite a while, and I was super [...]

Postcard from…Rusty Gun

My mum and dad live on the edge of a large town. It should technically be a city, but for silly reasons (football team names...), it's still a town. If you venture 5 minutes away, you're in the countryside. Farmers land, village pubs and country lanes. I love the hustle and bustle of the city, [...]
