Russia, Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace

Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace

There are three different attractions that can be visited at Buckingham Palace: Queen’s Gallery, The Royal Mews, and The State Rooms. On the day, Sunday, we went to Buckingham Palace only the Queen’s Gallery was open. The State Rooms are open this year from 20 July to 29 September. As it happened, the Royal Mews […]

HMS Trincomalee

Museums in Hartlepool

My husband and I recently visited two museums in Hartlepool, National Museum of the Royal Navy & HMS Trincomalee and Museum of Hartlepool. The second one is free, but there is a fee for the first one. Even so, it’s worth it and, even more, you can have access to the museum for an year […]

Bag of Nails London. Outside

Before booking our short holiday in Middlesborough, I didn’t know about the bridge. I’ve seen it in a documentary, but […]

Preston Park Museum

3 Museums in Middlesborough

I’ve named my post 3 Museums in Middlesborough, but the truth is that only two are in Middlesborough and the other is in Stockton-on-Tees. I can’t imagine a better way to talk about these locations though, as 3 Museums in County Durham would have sounded a bit odd. Usually I would post about each museum […]

Highgrove is the private residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Prince Charles got Highgrove in […]
