30th October 2020 by While I'm YoungOne day in Bath
Bath’s architecture and heritage have always piqued my interest. Reminiscent of my beloved Edinburgh in its size and stature, the Somerset city is dripping in history. A centre of wellbeing since Roman times, Bath is still known today for having the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in. There are whispers of antiquity everywhere you look, from the ancient abbey to the grand Georgian homes towering over cobbled streets....
30th October 2020 by Twins that TravelThings to do in Rye, Sussex: A beautiful weekend away
Despite being diminutive in size, there are a (surprising) number of things to do in Rye, East Sussex. I first visited this corner of southeast England a few years ago; enticed by stories of sparsely populated coastlines, mysterious marshes and medieval boltholes. A place shrouded in swirling sea mists, where smugglers, crooks and ghouls once gathered, there was – I thought – something beautifully bewitching about this mysterious, briny outpost....
30th October 2020 by While I'm YoungHow to have a brilliant day trip in Brighton
Colourful, alternative and packed with young people: Brighton quickly became my new favourite UK city when I visited a few weeks back. While Brighton’s attractions are numerous and diverse, one of the best things to do in Brighton is simply to take an aimless walk around the city and soak up the atmosphere, which vibrates with a contagious energy....
23rd September 2020 by Twins that TravelA 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...
11th September 2020 by Hand Luggage Only10 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....
23rd September 2020 by While I'm YoungVisiting 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!...

Don’t you just love the power of Instagram when it comes to finding new places to visit? When I asked my followers if they had tips for a day out in Harrogate, a few people mentioned the nearby town of Knaresborough. I had never heard of it before, but after looking at people’s beautiful pictures of the place, I made up my mind to visit en route to Harrogate. It unexpectedly turned into a full day there!...
