The Eden Project; like Kew Gardens but on steroids.

At least that was my first thought as I entered the largest indoor rain forest in the world, situated within one of two vast futuristic man-made biome structures that look like alien spacecraft among acres of landscape...

Today was all about the ballet, specifically The Royal Ballet and its London locations.

The Royal Ballet is Britain's flagship ballet company with an international reputation as one of the absolute finest. It has been around since 1931 and took up residence at the Royal...

Whilst researching out a tour of Life in London during World War II, I was excited to find out that small buildings that I had not really noticed before, but walked past hundreds of times, were a lot more interesting than I thought.

These fairly nondescript buildings we...

Rye is the most perfect, supremely English quaint medieval town I can think of. Steeped in history, over 900 years old and a benchmark for picturesque.

Crooked half-timbered houses line a muddle of steep cobbled lanes with borders of breathtaking flowers, grasses, and h...

Another one well worth a look, St Pancras Old Church and Churchyard.

It’s only a 10-minute walk away from the newly developed area of Coal's Drop Yard near Kings Cross and home to some knockout monuments, mausoleums and other cool stuff.

Well Good Morning 😃

How amazing to be only 4 miles from the dead centre of London yet surrounded by this stunning scenery.

Hampstead Heath, 800 acres of sheer awesomeness, unparalleled views across the city, inspiration for artists & writers - Constance & C.S.Lewis spri...

The memorial to John F. Kennedy at Runnymede is a very different kind of memorial.

The principal element is a 7 ton, 100 million year old block of Portland Stone that bears a dedication, the dates of the President's life and a quotation from Kennedy's inaugural address...

Out on the bike again today and this time it was Destination Windsor. But a Windsor like I have never seen it. Glorious weather and zero people.

Normally at this time of year it would be getting super busy and it really brought home how much I miss not being able to wan...

I went on a cycle trip outside of London to Kent countryside the other day and came across several of these curiously shaped houses dotted all over the place.

They are known as Oast houses and for centuries were an integral part producing beer, and we Brits all love a...
