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…

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.

London | 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…

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…

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…

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…

Open London: Temple Church and Inns of Court

It’s well known that there is loads to do in London. And I’m not just talking about the big sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, but also the smaller things like the numerous markets and neighbourhoods. So when a day in London was organised with my boyfriend’s family, I…

Ben’s Cookies

In this world there are cookies, and then there are Ben’s Cookies. Located in several cities across England, with a number of shops in London (thankfully!), there are plenty of opportunities to sample the delights on offer in store. Each shop I’ve been to – maybe four? – has been…

Photo Friday: In Love With A Lake

There’s a park close to my house with a lovely lake and plenty of space to enjoy a relaxing walk. We recently had a very rare, stunningly sunny day, and I just had to take advantage of the opportunity to try out my new camera! The place itself is really…

Cake and Bake Show 2014

To celebrate another year of ageing, one of the gifts I received for my birthday was two tickets to the cake and bake show at Earls Court in London. My lovely boyfriend had the pleasure of accompanying me, which he only agreed to because he thought there’d be cake samples.…

Harry Potter Studio Tour, England

The books stole the heart of almost every child and adult who read them, and the films captured those who were left. I’m hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like Harry Potter or who hasn’t seen the films. And this could be the reason that Warner Bros hit a…

The joys of home :)

So recently I’ve decided that in a bid to boost the travel fund, I should spend some time (and save some money) exploring and discovering the sights on offer in the UK. I’ve lived here my whole life, so I know why people come here (as I go to other…

You sound like you’re from Londooonnnn!!

Well hello there! So this weekend was a busy one…no trips abroad, but my boyfriend & I spent the day in London with his family for his mum’s birthday. In true English style, it was pouring down with rain, but as I walked to our first stop I got to…
