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

The Jurassic Coast is one of Englands UNESCO World Heritage Sites that’s perched on the south coast of Great Britain. What makes this area so special is the fact that you can go fossil hunting and explore the incredible landscapes of the Jurassic Coast. The whole region is so beautiful to see, with the likes … Continue Reading

You know, one of the things I love about England is the diversity that we have. From the little coves on the Dorset Coast, gorgeous little hamlets and enough history to throw a stick at. All across the country, it’s filled to the brim with some of the best places to visit in England. Okay … 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

The Jurassic Coast of England is a part of the country I’d wanted to visit for the longest time. In large part, this is due to amazing natural sights like Durdle Door and Old Harry Rocks but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping to find myself some dinosaur bone while I there! … Continue Reading

I’m a sucker for anything sweet! Dip it in chocolate, bake it, fill it with cream and I’m almost guaranteed to devour it. Living in London, in sooooo many ways, spoils you. There’s literally somewhere new, delicious and exciting to visit almost every day across the different areas of London. That’s what makes finding the … Continue Reading

There’s something so gorgeous about England and yes, I am slightly biased. After growing up in Wales, studying in Scotland, I finally set down some roots in England. From the rolling hills and villages in the Cotswolds to England’s historic castles; the whole country is so diverse. That being said, let’s not forget some of the … Continue Reading

London is a totally diverse and international city, which, if I’m honest is what makes the best areas of London so special. These are all filled with a huge mix of amazing cultures and yummy food, too. That being said, it can be hard to whittle down some of the best things to do in … Continue Reading

In England, there’s something of a ‘new tradition’ This ‘new tradition’ is all about celebrating local heroes. After all, even the Queen’s done that ages with the Honours Lists, but this one’s different. This one’s about celebrating the people who help us travellers see even more of England and contribute in many different ways of … Continue Reading

Breakfast on our final morning in the Cotswolds started (…after a nice bath) with eggs royale for myself and gggs & soldiers for Lloyd. All washed down with some freshly brewed coffee. The Royal Oak is a fairly small and intimate place (I think there are only 6 rooms in total) so you’re quite likely … Continue Reading

The next morning in the Cotswold, I woke up with no aim but to cram in as many pretty little villages and towns in the Cotswolds as possible into my day. After breakfast at the Royal Oak, we set off to do just that, starting with an old favourite of mine – Bibury and it’s … Continue Reading

A weekend escape to the Cotswolds is something that almost everyone needs to experience in the UK –  doesn’t matter if you call the UK home or if you’re just visiting, you just have to visit. 😀 This beautiful part of England is absolutely gorgeous (a word I used a lot over the next few … Continue Reading
