Detail of wall at Red Lodge Museum

Red Lodge Museum

Red Lodge Museum is one of the free museums in Bristol I’ve been to recently. It’s a gorgeous house with quite unusual features, so I would say is worth visiting it. It was a family home, upgraded over the years, as most old houses are. You can check for more details on bristolmuseums. How gorgeous […]

Fashion Museum Bath

Fashion Museum Bath was a place I wanted to visit for a long time. I’ve been reading about Bath in my regency romance novels for years (since I was a teenager), so is not surprisingly Bath was high on my list of places to see. Fashion Museum and the Assembly Rooms are in the same […]

Castle Combe

Castle Combe

Castle Combe is a lovely village in southern England. I can’t remember where I saw some pictures, but I remembered the place, so I was keen to visit it on our holiday. I was expecting to have a short walk around the village, but we ended up staying for a few hours. There were many […]

Clifton Suspension Bridge

Clifton Suspension Bridge

I knew that on my visit to Bristol, Clifton Suspension Bridge was one of the places I wanted to see. After watching quite a few of TV shows about Brunel, I knew I had to add it on my to-visit list. Because we’ve visited in November, we didn’t get the chance to get a free […]

The Shipwreck Museum & Heritage Centre

The Shipwreck Museum & Heritage Centre

You might wonder what can you see at The Shipwreck Museum? My husband and I did too, this is why we’ve decided to visit it. The one we went to is in Cornwall, in Charlestown. Charlestown is a lovely village, that is also the place where Poldark is filmed. Sadly I’ve lost some pictures, and […]

View from Lanhydrock

Lanhydrock

Lanhydrock was restored by Thomas Charles after a fire, in 1881, into a ‘an unpretentious family home’. I saw some pretty interesting things on display, including things I haven’t seen before. The house is gorgeous and the estate looks amazing on a sunny day like the one we had when we’ve visited it. There are […]

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle

Pendennis Castle is a lovely castle owned and managed by English Heritage in Cornwall. It was built by Henry VIII, between 1539 to 1545, when he was concerned about invasion from the Catholic kingdoms of Europe. He improved the defense by building a few coastal forts, equipped with guns powerful enough to sink enemy warships. […]

Botallack Mines

Botallack Mines

Botallack Mines are not the only Poldark filming location we’ve visited in our holiday to Cornwall, if you remember my post from Gunwalloe. I still have a few other posts from that holiday to share. The Botallack Mines are owned and managed by National Trust, so check their website for details if you fancy a […]
