Holker Hall: A Gem in the Lakes

I recently went on holiday with my parents to the Lake District, and I had an amazing time taking in the spectacular scenery or the lakes and mountains through a series of walks. However, I had to visit a country house of some sort whilst I was in a new area! I decided on Holker Hall…

A Cultural Guide to Greenwich

It’s no secret if you’ve been reading my blog that I love a good day out. I always enjoy making the most of the day somewhere new, trying to see and enjoy as many historical and cultural sites as possible before its time to head home. I thought I would try and start a guide…

Portmeirion: A Hint of Italy

Back in May, I visited North Wales for a week. I’d never been to Wales before and absolutely loved exploring the beautiful countryside, castles and quaint towns, some of which I hope to share in future posts. However, the highlight of the trip would have to be a visit to Portmeirion, a tourist village in…

Ickworth House: An Old Favourite

I feel like most people have a National Trust Property, garden or historic site so nearby to them, they often take it for granted. Ickworth House, near Bury St. Edmunds is definitely mine. I visit Ickworth at least five times a year and after exploring the house multiple times, I now just visit with friends…

Inigo Jones’ Queen’s House

Famous architect Inigo Jones was born 445 years ago today so I thought it was fitting to write a post about one of his well-known builds, the Queen’s House in Greenwich, known as the first classical build in Britain. I visited the house and the beautiful area of Greenwich in April, and have been waiting…

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…

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…
