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… Continue reading A Night In London’s West End

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… Continue reading Brighton | Oh I Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside!

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… Continue reading Postcards from…The Shard

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 called the Millennium Wheel -… Continue reading London | A Flying Visit To The Shard!

London, Postcards

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… Continue reading Postcard from…Temple Church

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,… Continue reading Postcard from…Rusty Gun

Postcards, Ramsgate

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 seafront, but it's so pretty… Continue reading Postcard from…Ramsgate

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 Lady Chapel. Dedicated to Mary,… Continue reading Photo Friday: Chapel

When I finally made it to St Albans Cathedral, I was shocked at the sheer size of the church. As I made my way in, I couldn't believe how quiet it was - my boyfriend and I were the only people in there! After about 10 minutes another couple emerged from the far end of… Continue reading Photo Friday: Decor Change

Photo Friday: Admiralty Arch

A well-known landmark in London, Admiralty Arch connects the Mall with Trafalgar Square. If you've ever walked from Buckingham Palace down the famous red road known as The Mall, you would have passed under Admiralty Arch to continue on to Charing Cross and Trafalgar Square. It's a stunning building which curves round, with a few… Continue reading Photo Friday: Admiralty Arch
