Ideas for Winter trips in Europe

Winter time is the time when we cosy up in chunky knits, boots and scarfs. It gets darker and much colder, but that doesn’t mean we should snuggle up indoors with the fire on and a hot chocolate (though that idea is also quite appealling). Getting out and about in the Winter can be just as fun and excting as in the Summer, with a number of activities such as...

Staying on trend #atthemoxy London Stratford

Social Media has had a dramatic influence into the way we travel these days. The growth rate of platforms such as Instagram as well as other travel apps means we can share life in seconds, wherever we are in the World. Food has now become an art form. We no longer just eat and enjoy it. It has to be photographed, and shared with a whole host of people. The same goes...

Why you need to see London by Helicopter

London is a buzzing metropolis, and the largest city in the UK, that is exciting and chaotic all at the same time. It drawsย you in with its grand structures, and incredible places to visit. It has everything you need in a city, from expansive green spaces, to top attractions, venues, shops and grand buildings. Sometimes however, London can become a little too much...

Touring UK Capital Cities: Belfast, Edinburgh, London, Cardiff

People often hear that the UK is one of the most expensive parts of the world to travel in. While the British Pound seems to have steadied well post-Brexit vote, the 4-country kingdom itself still ranks amongst one of the dearest destinations in Europe.

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.ย  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...

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...

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...

Eating in a toilet in London at the Attendant

I have a love affair with food. I will happily graze all day and I love finding quirkyย places to, or ones based in incredible buildings. I wee while ago (pun intended), a friend of mine told me about a place in London, which was a former public toilet, now converted into a cafe/coffee house. It sounded fantastic, so I went to have a look. Ladies and gentleman, I give...

Breakfast with a view at Duck and Waffle, London

Imagine being served up a unique breakfast, cooked by a Michelin star chef, whilst enjoying the panoramic views of a great city. It wouldn’t be a bad start to the day, would it? Duck and Waffle is the UK’s highest restaurant, situated on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, in Bishopsgate; just a short walk from Liverpool Street station. in central London...

Climbing to the top of Monument, London

When I was a child, I can recall the nursery rhyme song “London’s burning”. The lyrics were a simple four lines, repeated over and over again. It went like so: “London’s burning, London’s burning Fetch the engines, Fetch the engines. Fire, Fire! Fire, Fire!ย  Pour on water, Pour on water.” At the time, I had no idea of the...
