Cromer was our first trip of 2022. We went for a couple of nights in early March. A bit early in the year to visit the seaside, but only two months from going to Ibiza, so we wanted a taste of the sea and sand. We were lucky to have plenty of sunshine, but it … More Cold Cromer
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
Whitby is a more popular destination on the Yorkshire coast than Scarborough. No offence to Whitby, I just think Scarborough has more to offer. However, we still had a day trip to Whitby and enjoyed the sights. Whitby has a lot to offer with its views, coastline, Abbey, history and shops/cafes. But like last year … More Shots of Whitby
We went up to the Yorkshire coast in June, like we did last September. We stayed in Blue Dolphin caravan resort, which was a much less nice Haven resort compared to Primrose Valley. But I wanted to try a different caravan park. Going for a week this time we had the time to achieve more. … More Scarborough 2021 – a “Great” British tourist destination
On our visit to Somerset in early May we stayed at a Haven caravan site in Burnham on Sea. We chose Somerset over Wales when picking a Haven site as at the time we saw it as too much of a risk to choose Wales because of the varying Covid restrictions between countries. The Haven … More Drab Burnham
This was our first trip since the lockdowns and tier systems of late 2020/early 2021. We spent 3 nights at a Haven caravan park in Burnham on Sea. As we hadn’t been to Somerset before we wanted to see more of the area, so had a day out to Weston-super-Mare. On the day we went … More Weston-super-Mare
In my last blog post I mentioned that we had a holiday booked to Majorca for the start of May, but obviously that has been cancelled now that abroad holidays are going to take place from 17th May at the earliest. However, it is not the end of the world even though I was very … More Holidays booked
This is going to be hard to say….we haven’t been able to go abroad this year….phew I said it and it hurt just writing it! However, that didn’t stop us going away in England multiple times and at the end of September we went to the Yorkshire coast.
