England

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...

Get out of London: 5 trips away from the Capital

Let me start off by saying that I love London. It is diverse, and vibrant and has plenty to see, great places to eat and stay. However, there are times when I question myself, when I’ve wandered into the capital, why I am there – when I am being trodden on by several tourists, who are shoving their selfie sticks in my face, or just being trampled upon by...

Pentahotel Derby: Gateway to the Peak District

When choosing a hotel to stay in as a base to explore the Peak District, I wanted something that would be be central enough, and allow flexibilty of seeing a different city, and not be a horrendous drive away from my current location in the South East of England. My trip to the Peak District was planned as a mini getaway for the weekend, giving me the chance to catch...

A peek inside the devils arse at Peak Cavern, Derbyshire

Before you question whether I am being crude, or have been to the seventh circle of hell. I am not, and have not. Instead, I thought I’d enlighten you on my venture of exploring the largest cave entrance in the British Isles, which happens to be known as the Devils Arse (charming eh!), which is situated in the middle of the peak district in England...

On the rooftop of Bath, England at Thermae Spa

There aren’t many places in the World, where you can sit on a rooftop, in a natural thermal pool, whilst peering over a historical city, and being just under 2 hours from London, it makes Bath Spa in England a real possibility for travellers to enjoy this experience. Recently I got to revisit the historical city of Bath, as a treat for my sisters birthday, and...

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...

Visiting Liverpool’s biggest secret: WilliamsonTunnels

Sometimes the best attractions in a city are those which are those, which are not as well known. Liverpool is a city full of culture; with award-winning museums, theatres, entertainment venues and incredible architecture. However, if you dare venture out of the city a little, toward the suburb of Edge Hill, you will come across an unknown treasure – The...

What it feels like to be home

Boarding the flight, I settled in, as I normally would, and made sure I had everything on board to ensure that the next 8 hours would be as comfortable as possible. It felt like any other flight that I had taken over the past 3 years since I left my native Northern Ireland, or indeed in the recent 5 months I had spent in South-East Asia. Except it wasn’t.  I was...

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 quirky 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...

Top 5 things to do in Bath, Somerset

From Georgian architecture and ancient hot pools to more exuberant pools on a rooftop and cream teas. The UNESCO heritage city of Bath in Somerset is a must for a weekend city break, you’ll leave feeling full of knowledge and be relaxed at the same time. I happened to only have one day in Bath, as part of my England to Wales Road trip lately, but I still...
