A road trip to Cornwall: A week long itinerary

My eyes fixed to the TV screen, I watched as Boris Johnson announced that UK travel was back on. Throwing open my laptop – the Prime Minister’s comments fading into the background – I frantically booked a road trip to Cornwall. After many months of lockdown, leaving the house just once a day for the same walk around the same park, I was pretty much salivating at the thought of escaping the concrete paradise of Milton Keynes. Within an hour of the government’s announcement, I’d...

10 best day trips from London

London is such an incredible city but sometimes, it’s just nice to get away from the big smoke to explore more of our stunning country. After all, there are so many day trips from London that really showcase how beautiful England is. Like so many other Londoners, owning a car involves so much extra hassle (the biggest one being where to actually park it). This meant we never bought a car in London....

Visiting Finchale Abbey in Durham

Our latest North East day out was a visit to Finchale Abbey in Durham. Tom had been promising to take me there for a good year and, true to his word, he planned the whole day out. He isn’t usually too hot when it comes to dreaming up places for us to go, so I was pleasantly surprised!...

Day trip to London & afternoon tea on the River Thames

London is full of unique things to do and did you know you can go for a classic British afternoon tea on the River Thames? It doesn't get more iconic than that! I went out with City Cruises for their Afternoon Tea cruise which I loved. They kept us socially distanced which was needed in August 2020 and I loved the huge bright windows on the boat. After we ate we got to go on top of the boat and see the sights from there! It's super touristy but I loved it! I also walked along the River...

Visiting Calke Abbey

The un-stately home and country estate of Calke Abbey is a wonderful place to visit for a day trip in Derbyshire, especially if you are looking to go walking. Whether that’s for a gentle walk around the gardens or on a long walk around the trails and parkland, there are plenty of Calke Abbey Walks to go on and it is a great place to visit with the family. Calke Abbey gives you an insight into what a former stately home used to look like when a family lived there who never threw anything away!...
