England

A World away, Camping in Durdle Door, Dorset

You don’t have to travel far, to have an Adventure! This is something I have learnt a lot of since returning to live back in the UK, 2 years ago (already). I have moved four times within England since my return, and in the New Year, I will be moving again – hopefully for the last time; for a while at least. All this moving, has got me seeing more of...

Walking over an icon, with UP at the 02

I remember when they built the o2, (or the Millennium Dome, as it was known as then). It was the futuristic dome shaped building, based on the edge of the Thames in North Greenwich, London.  Open for just 12 months, it was a highly controversial attraction at the time, which housed the Millennium Experience; an exhibition celebrating the third Millennium. Over the...

Staying on the edge of the largest indoor Rainforest at YHA Eden Project, Cornwall

The Eden Project is an Educational Charity, which opened in May 2000 with the aim to connect people with plants. It houses the largest indoor Rainforest in the Country, with two giant Biomes, exhibiting plant life from both the tropics, and the Mediterranean, a rainforest Canopy Walkway, as well as incredible well maintained gardens, sculptures and ‘the core’ which...

A view from the Shard, London

I love visiting London; there is always so much to see and do. However, sometimes it can get a little chaotic down on the streets, which is why you should get yourself up to the viewing platform of the Shard, which is incidentally the tallest building and viewing platform in London; so you know you’ll get the best views. Prior to leaving England, I watched in...

Get out of London: 5 trips away from the Capital

Let me start off by saying that I love London. It is diverse, and vibrant and has plenty to see, great places to eat and stay. However, there are times when I question myself, when I’ve wandered into the capital, why I am there – when I am being trodden on by several tourists, who are shoving their selfie sticks in my face, or just being trampled upon by...

Pentahotel Derby: Gateway to the Peak District

When choosing a hotel to stay in as a base to explore the Peak District, I wanted something that would be be central enough, and allow flexibilty of seeing a different city, and not be a horrendous drive away from my current location in the South East of England. My trip to the Peak District was planned as a mini getaway for the weekend, giving me the chance to catch...

A peek inside the devils arse at Peak Cavern, Derbyshire

Before you question whether I am being crude, or have been to the seventh circle of hell. I am not, and have not. Instead, I thought I’d enlighten you on my venture of exploring the largest cave entrance in the British Isles, which happens to be known as the Devils Arse (charming eh!), which is situated in the middle of the peak district in England...

On the rooftop of Bath, England at Thermae Spa

There aren’t many places in the World, where you can sit on a rooftop, in a natural thermal pool, whilst peering over a historical city, and being just under 2 hours from London, it makes Bath Spa in England a real possibility for travellers to enjoy this experience. Recently I got to revisit the historical city of Bath, as a treat for my sisters birthday, and...

Brightening up winter with Lumiere London

January can be a bit of a bleak month. We’ve spent the previous one eating, drinking and spending too much. The excitement of Christmas has passed, and we’re all now broke and on diets. It is still cold outside, and in general; January feels a little bit dull. Last week however, I found a brilliant way of brightening it up, with the Lumiere London...

Visiting Liverpool’s biggest secret: WilliamsonTunnels

Sometimes the best attractions in a city are those which are those, which are not as well known. Liverpool is a city full of culture; with award-winning museums, theatres, entertainment venues and incredible architecture. However, if you dare venture out of the city a little, toward the suburb of Edge Hill, you will come across an unknown treasure – The...
