Today, the city is all about a diversity of flavours and that’s no different when it comes to finding the most gorge-worthy and very best burgers in London. … Continue Reading

London isn’t always just about famous attractions to see or the secret spots to find.

On our final day in Amberley, after yet another lazy breakfast, I was perfectly happy with just returning straight to London until Lloyd mentioned a place I just knew I’d have to visit. That place was Petworth House, which we’d passed on the way over to Arundel and Amberley from London and so it was … Continue Reading

The next day at Amberley castle, I woke up to surprisingly heavy rain! It’d been so sunny the day before and the rain was the last thing I’d expected.

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to visit Arundel Castle! I remember hearing about it years ago and thinking it was a joke – in large part because the name sounds made up, like a place or a character from Lord of the Rings. Then I found out it was a real place and, after … Continue Reading

On our final morning in the Jurassic Coast, after breakfast similar to the one the day before (see it here), we bade farewell to the Hix Townhouse and hit the road, heading back slowly up to London. We drove by some cute villages but decided this time not to stop – there was one place … Continue Reading

Oxford is one of those cities that I always want to go back to. It’s a place that’s steeped in history, some world-renowned architecture and I think it has some sort of famous university there too? 🤣 Okay, jokes aside, the university is incredible and even if you don’t study there, the colleges are a must-see … Continue Reading

The next morning at the Hix Townhouse, I woke to the sound of faint knocking at the door – breakfast had arrived! Breakfast came in a picnic box with freshly baked muffins, cheese pastries, fresh juice, yoghurts (one of which was salted caramel and I’m down for anything and everything salted caramel) and muesli. After … Continue Reading
