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. In honour of Holyrood Week, or as it’s known in Scotland, ‘Royal…

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…

Print making in action

To escape the busy hectic life of constant reading at Uni I recently took a short weekend break back home in Suffolk. I usually love to visit a country house when I’m at home, however, we decided to try something a bit different and visited a printing exhibition, complete with a series of demonstrations at…

My 2017 Top 9

As the new year starts, I wanted to do a quick post to go through some of the amazing things that happened in 2017. I mean I might be procrastinating revision with my 72-hour exam looming but it’s something I want to share before we get too into January! 2017 was a big year for…

Rosenborg & Christiansborg

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and is looking forward to the new year! I certainly am, I love having a sense of a fresh start, even if it is just another day haha! I’m thinking of doing a sort of reflective post next week of all my favourite places and things I’ve done this…

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…

Dior: Designer of dreams

Apologies for the second fashion post in a row but I’ve just been so excited to write about the Dior exhibition I visited in Paris (and it’s quite a long post so be warned!). It was an unbelievable exhibition, and I’d go as far to say the best exhibition I’ve ever been to. It was…

Roskilde and the Viking Museum

So this post is a little delayed, third year is so full on at the moment!! However, as the work begins to die down, I really wanted to get back to writing for my blog. I thought I’d do another post about my trip to Copenhagen, seeing as I had already started on this and…

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…
