Fitzwilliam Museum: Cambridge Culture Guides

As I am currently studying in Cambridge, I thought I would start creating some blog content about some of the museums, colleges and other cultural delights Cambridge has to offer! This first post in the series is about the Fitzwilliam Museum, an amazingly diverse museum right in the centre of Cambridge. I’d visited the museum…

York Culture Guide Part 2

There are so many amazing things to do in York, it’s the perfect city for a New Year getaway or a chance to escape the hectic work life for a weekend mid-year. So, I thought I’d do another follow-up post from my first culture guide about York, which you can read here, and suggest some…

York Culture Guide

Having seen all the new Freshers start the University of York this September, it really makes me think of how beautiful a city York truly is and how much I enjoyed exploring in my first few weeks and subsequent years!!  This is a bit of a nostalgic post for my own time spent as a student…

Anthony Gormley: Subject

As I’ve been working in Cambridge the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to explore the city in more depth and take in the beautiful college architecture and sights of Cambridge during my lunch breaks.

Rediscovering York Art Gallery

Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion

Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion at the Victoria and Albert Museum has been on my radar as a must see exhibition since it opened. Having spent this term at uni studying a fashion module, this was the perfect exhibition to see on our uni trip to London. The exhibition combines designs from Spanish courtier Cristóbal Balenciaga, subsequent…

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…
