Postcards from…Roman Baths

A visit to Bath isn’t complete without a tour of the Roman Baths. Full of history and the place that gave the city its name, the Roman Baths are well worth taking the time to tour the complex. Before visiting, I was told the tour would take about an hour…

Bath | Roman Ruins and Big Baths

Spontaneity is fun, but hard to fit in when every day seems to be super busy and planned so far in advance. So last week when my boyfriend suggested we head to the British city of Bath two days later, I jumped at the chance. A quick search for an…

Postcard from…Ramsgate Harbour

The seaside town of Ramsgate is the perfect weekend escape from London. Within minutes of wandering along the boat-filled harbour, the stress of the week melts away and you’re ready to just…relax. There’s a bit of something for everyone, with a sandy beach, plenty of pubs and restaurants and the…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Postcard from…Ramsgate

As a proper seaside town, Ramsgate has all the tourist-y souvenirs that you would expect – sticks of rock, magnets, t-shirts and the like. Of course, I picked a postcard up from my short stay in Ramsgate! While there, I didn’t get to see much else than the harbour and the…

Speedy trip to the seaside!

Tucked away in the southeast of England, Ramsgate is a charming seaside town. So when my boyfriend and I were invited to a family friend’s wedding there, we jumped at the chance for a mini break away! Although it’s just a couple of hours drive from West London, passing Heathrow airport…

Premier Inn Bedford South, Bedford

There are pros and cons to staying with a huge hotel chain – you know that there’s a certain standard they need to maintain, but you don’t always get that personal touch that comes with smaller family-run hotels. So when I found out I was off a business trip with…

Photo Friday: Chapel

I’m still reeling from my visit to the stunning St Albans Cathedral! When I first entered the cathedral, I walked into the main area of worship (pews, altar, that kind of thing). As I made my way through, soaking up all the different aspects on offer, I found myself in…

Postcard from…Rose Window

The rose window of any cathedral is always a big highlight – the size alone is impressive, but when you look at it in more detail the stories told in each window are incredible. The best rose window I’ve seen so far was in Notre Dame in Paris, but on…

Crowne Plaza Heythorp Park, Oxford

A weekend away with the family is always lovely, and when you’re actually spending the weekend at a spa hotel in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside it’s twice as nice. And I’m talking no signal on your phone kind of countryside, which is fine until you’re lost and realise…
