Book Roundup One

I’ve always loved reading from a young age, and of course, studying a History and History of Art degree, my life was basically reading!! However, throughout the past three years of uni, I have slacked with reading for fun and have only picked up a few books I really wanted to read in the holidays….

Visiting the Palace of Holyroodhouse

This week is the Queen’s annual visit to Holyrood Palace, her official residence in Scotland. During the week she carries out a range of official engagements and ceremonies, celebrating Scottish culture, achievement and community, both meeting Scots and hosting thousands at the Palace.

Exploring Beningbrough Hall

Hello! Sorry for the severe lack of posts recently but for those that don’t know I’ve just finished uni completely!! The last few months have been so full of revision and dissertation writing that sadly the last thing I wanted to do in my free time was to write more on the blog. However, now…

A Day Exploring Lavenham

This is a bit of a belated post but Lavenham is such a beautiful town so I had to write about it even if I’m a bit behind! I had such a lovely day just after Christmas, exploring the town, visiting cute little tea shops and finding antique gems. As my visit was around Christmas…

Winter at Castle Howard

As much as I wanted to visit Castle Howard at Christmas, I sadly didn’t get a chance to visit before I went home for the holidays. The house is usually filled with the most ornate decorations and ginormous tree, so it’s really worth going to see. For more information on visiting Castle Howard in the…

A Day trip to Melford Hall

Okay, so first off apologies, I said I would try and stick to one post a week whilst still at uni. However, that’s becoming quite a struggle with not only the ridiculous amount of reading but now essays and presentations. As part of my modules I’ve been reading about such interesting topics, so hopefully, I’ll…

Helsingor, Fredriksborg & Kronborg

It seems like such a long time since I went to Copenhagen, almost a month! However, I still really want to share what we got up to on our trip so be prepared for some delayed blog posts from our adventures! As I’ve recently started back at uni I’ve been trying to keep on top…
