International Slavery Museum Wall

International Slavery Museum

I’ve been to the International Slavery Museum on Albert Dock, when I moved to Liverpool. I wasn’t impressed, as I mentioned it in my post Museums. It was interesting to my thoughts from back then, when I said that “I think slavery deserves a better way to be presented, stronger and with more impact on […]

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop - Tea rooms

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop

Lydiate Hall Farm Shop is in the same location with The Hayloft tea shop. It’s about 25 minutes from Liverpool city centre, but it’s worth the trip. There is a lovely place to stroll, seeing the ruins of the Hall, two churches are nearby and they look lovely. I also noticed signs to public footpaths. […]

Model Image. Fashion and photos from the 1950s - Dresses

Model Image Fashion and photos from the 1950s

The new special exhibition at Sudley House is Model Image Fashion and photos from the 1950s. Last year I’ve been to another exhibition at Sudley, on the 1930s fashion. In London I saw the 1920s exhibition at Fashion Museum. I find it fascinating to see how much fashion has changed in such a short period. […]

Old Docks Experience - Albert Docks

Old Docks Experience

I’ve been to the Old Docks Experience a few years ago, in 2013. I shared a few pictures, but not a lot of details. After 5 years, and a lot of history related TV shows and books, I was ready to go on the Old Docks Experience tour again. I took advantage of the last […]

Slaves of Fashion Exhibition

I’ve been to the Slaves of Fashion Exhibition at Walker Art Gallery last month. It was very interesting and it did made me consider my buying choices. The exhibition is still on display until the second part of May, details on Walker’s gallery website. If you’ve followed my blog, you might have seen the post […]

Liverpool Central Library

Liverpool Central Library

I love reading books, in fact I have a whole new blog to talk about them: Coffee & Books. As I’m reading a lot of books, most of them are borrowed from the library, not only is much cheaper, but I don’t have to think where to store all the books. The bookshelves are not […]

The Terracotta Warriors

The Terracotta Warriors

Two years ago I saw that World Museum will organize a special exhibition in February 2018: China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors. I was so excited to see the terracotta warriors. I left buying the tickets a bit late, so I’ve ended up getting ones after three weeks. All previous days were fully booked. […]

Visit My Mosque - Abdullah Quilliam

Visit My Mosque – Abdullah Quilliam

Last week I saw that there is a new annual event taking place, called Visit My Mosque. It’s been a long while since I visited a mosque and never in the UK. So, we went last Sunday to Abdullah Quilliam mosque. I heard about it. It’s the oldest mosque in England. See their website for […]

Wheatsheaf Inn Wirral

Wheatsheaf Inn Wirral

I’ve been to the Wheatsheaf Inn, an old pub in Wirral for many years, but I never blogged about it, not even a small mention. The pub was recommended to me by the guy who sold us the car and I know how strange that sounds. Locally is known as the Thatch due to its […]

Peter Farrer was born in Surrey in 1926 and lived in Liverpool for many years. His father was a schoolmaster and a clergyman. He started cross-dressing from the age of 14. […]
