Shots of Cromer in early March of 2022. We had plenty of sunshine, but the wind was ice cold.
We stopped off in Beverley for a walk round, I managed to have a quick look inside the grand Minster, in between toddler meltdowns. I’m not religious in any sense but I love cathedrals, churches and minsters because of the architecture and history. Beverley’s minister is a must visit. We walked around the town, having … More Shots of Beverley and Hull
The Selfridges/Bullring’s exterior has a temporary new look while it is being renovated, it’s the first time we saw it on our visit last week. It’s quite a fancy design for a scaffolding wrap. Visiting Birmingham this month was a bit sad on the shopping front. Grand Central has a huge empty space now John … More Birmingham’s shopping issues
We explored a few towns while in the Cotswolds, all had the same kind of brickwork and architecture. Stow on the Wold was busy and I didn’t expect it to be overly crowded by traffic, but it did have a lot of pretty buildings and great architecture.
Broadway was the last town we visited on our Cotswolds trip. It apparently has the longest high street in the country, mainly because the main street is a big chunk of the whole town itself, on a long stretch of road. Like all the Cotswolds towns we visited the buildings all fitted into the same … More Broadway
To find our Christmas getaway for 2019 I did the usual research of what places had Christmas markets and if they were any good. I had visited the city of Chester before when I travelled England way back in 2006. To be honest on this visit I didn’t really recognise much… Chester has a historic … More Chester – history and inaccessibility
St Paul’s Church is only a 10 minute walk from my house and I used to work opposite it for many years and yet it is only recently that I really began to notice it! I have had a ganders around the outside of it and it is quite a grand church that has somehow … More An undiscovered church
Ciutadella was the capital of Menorca as far back as the time of the Romans, even after the “disaster” of 1558 when the Turks decimated the city and sold every inhabitant into slavery. It wasn’t until the 18th century when the British moved the capital to Mahon on the opposite coast of the island. The … More The old capital of Menorca
I like Boston Stump for several reasons, it is a great piece of architecture and has a special identity by being called a stump instead of church or cathedral. I also like how I can walk through Boston city centre with the stump nowhere to be seen and then suddenly everything opens up and the … More Boston Stump
It was my birthday weekend, so I had the choice of where to go and I chose the small town of Cirencester because of all its Roman history… Corinium Museum We went round the museum on our first day before we could check into the hotel (the ever reliable Premier Inn). The museum had the … More Cirencester – A Roman Town
