I love spending time in London during the festive period.
The city goes all out for Christmas and we’ve been visiting every year since we were kids. We’ve had so many fun memories over the years, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite things to do. It’s likely that most of these are things you can do in every city in England, but London just has the biggest variety! Continue reading
Sadly, this is my last Cornish post, but it’s a good one!
We spent the day visiting 3 different towns and villages on the south Cornish coast; eating, drinking and exploring every little nook. The lovely thing about the little villages in Cornwall, are their endless winding lanes filled with pubs, tea shops, ice cream, fish & chips, and interesting boutiques. Continue reading
Tintagel Castle lies on the north coast of Cornwall and was supposedly home, at one point, to the legendary King Arthur.
Padella is a restaurant on the edge of Borough Market in London and they serve up some of the most exquisite pasta I have ever eaten.
Be prepared to wait a long old while to get a seat though, as they are super popular and it’s first come, first served. But it’s all completely worth it. I promise. Continue reading
Back in July, we made a little trip down to Lansallos Cove on the south coast of Cornwall.
The coastline is super dramatic, with jagged cliffs and rocks jutting out all over the place. Continue reading
Every time I go back home to Cambridge I love to visit my old favourites, obviously, but I also really enjoy trying new places and dishes too.
I always make a list of places that have opened that have tempted me to try, or recommendations from friends, or even places that are others’ tried and tested favourites that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet.
2018 was a good year of new food for me and although there was more than there is on this list, I’ve rounded it out to 12 of them. Plus, I’ve also added one of my boyfriend’s new favourites that he genuinely couldn’t get enough of while we were there. I’d like to say that a couple of these places are not new discoveries, but the dishes are and they just had to be shared. Continue reading
I love visiting the West Country.
I find Devon & Cornwall, in the south west of the UK, to be so green and lush, and their hilly landscape makes for a refreshing change from the flats of the Fenland around Cambridge. Continue reading
My home town of Cambridge has some amazing places to eat.
Pint Shop is a restaurant/bar located just off of Market Square in the centre of Cambridge. The decor is the perfect balance between rustic pub and modern eatery, and the food is just amazing. Their drinks list is pretty special too, with a changing draft beer list and a selection of around 100 gins including one of their own. Continue reading
This week is Bees’ Needs Week, which was created to raise awareness of how we can help our wonderful little pollinators.
It’s officially summer and what better way to celebrate than with a cold, fruity glass of Pimm’s & Lemonade.
This time next week, I will be basking in the glory of the English sunshine and I cannot wait.
There’s just something about the British summer that gives me all the joy. Plus, I’m managing to squeeze in the end of spring to my trip so all the spring flowers will still be in bloom. Happiness! Continue reading
London has so many wonderful bakeries, but I feel like I’m always being drawn back to the same ones again and again. Why? Because they are so unbelievably tasty.
Now, everyone loves a sweet treat when they spend the day in London, so I thought I would share 4 of my favourite places to grab that pastry or cupcake when you’re next in the capital. Continue reading
