Lancashire is one of the most historic counties within the United Kingdom (UK). Possibly most famous for the House of Lancaster to which the Tudor dynasty was linked, becoming the royal line after defeat of the House of York at the Battle of Bosworth Field (where King Richard III died and Henry Tudor, to become […]
The View From The Shard … its not too bad. In fact is just a little bit special. Earlier this week I was lucky (understatement) enough to be invited to a sneak press preview of London’s soon to be top attraction – The View From The Shard, an invitation I obviously accepted.
Ahead of the public […]
Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park is a 1.1 mile long nature walk which takes place of a Autumn/Winter evening against a backdrop of beautifully lit parkland and architecture. I’d wanted to take Esther last year, but for one reason or another we never made it. This year I was determined not to miss out and luckily […]
Transport from London airports, surely you just get a cab dont you? Straight from the terminal to your cosy hotel, hostel or appartment. Oh I wish it was that simple! Whilst London has an abundance of airports for the most part the ‘London’ part is a little white lie, the majority arent really inside the […]
The London 2012 Paralympics kicked off this past Wednesday (Aug 29th), and despite missing out of tickets to the Olympics, I was lucky enough to snare a couple of day passes to the Paralympics for Monday 3rd September.

So last week I went on the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Awesome! It’s well documented that i’m a bit of a nerd. Is it right for a 28 year old man to like Harry Potter? … maybe not, but I do so well erm … huffletuff.
So I should probably give fair warning here. **Spoiler alert** and […]
Last night whilst strolling through London, the mrs surprised me with a couple of tickets for the London Eye. She’s a catch that one! Sods law, middle of July and its lashing with rain, but even when wet the London skyline still looks spectacular.
This is probably the best pic I took. Here you can […]
So the London 2012 Olympics is not too far away, just around the corner in fact and things in London all seem to be getting a bit serious.
The big city budgeters and number crunchers are worrying just how much debt the games will get us into and how long it will take to pay it […]
Its amazing how many pictures I managed to take in just a single weekend, but Oxford was very a photogenic city. Aside from punting, which I blogged about last week, the mrs and I also took in a few of the shops, a museum or two, some markets and a jazz festival. It was pretty full […]
