Ford Green Hall. Outside

Ford Green Hall

Ford Green Hall is a lovely farmhouse dating back to the 17th century in Stoke-on-Trent. More details are available on their website. I’ve enjoyed my visit a lot. There were a few volunteers and they were so friendly and they answered all our questions. I would gladly visit Ford Green Hall again. Ford Green Hall […]

Wedgwood Museum

Wedgwood Museum and Tea Rooms

I wanted to go to Wedgwood Museum and tea rooms for a while, and earlier this month I finally went there. We’ve planned to go to a restaurant that day, so we’ve only ordered cream tea at Wedgwood. See more on worldofwedgwood. The Tea Conservatory looks lovely decorated. As we went to Wedgwood during the […]

Hall i’th’ Wood Museum

Hall i’th’ Wood Museum

Hall i’th’ Wood Museum is a gorgeous Tudor house with a lovely history, managed by boltonlams. I went to see a tour on Heritage Open Days. That meant that we got a very rare chance to view the attic, where is believed that Samuel Crompton hid the spinning mule in late 1700s, during the outbreak […]

Jeremiah Horrocks Observatory

Jeremiah Horrocks Observatory

Jeremiah Horrocks Observatory. It’s named after Jeremiah Horrocks, the Lancashire astronomer who correctly predicted the transit of Venus in 1639. See details on Preston and District Astronomical Society’s website, padas. On the day we visited the observatory it was raining. But, even so, the park looks beautiful. I’ve shared a couple of pictures at the […]

Salford Museum

Salford Museum

Last weekend my husband and I went to Salford Museum in Greater Manchester. It is a lovely art gallery with a lovely shop, where I bought a few things, and there is a nice looking tearoom too. We haven’t been to the tearooms as we were heading up to Trafford Centre for lunch. I’m going […]

Waddesdon Manor

Waddesdon Manor

I’ve realized today that I’ve been to Waddesdon Manor at the end of June and only now I’m sharing these pictures. I’ve blogged about Michael Eden’s special exhibition at Waddesdon Manor though, make sure you have a look, his work is gorgeous. Check their website if you want to see more details. The Rothschilds trace […]

Michael Eden at Waddesdon Manor

Michael Eden at Waddesdon Manor

Michael Eden’s Form & Transform collection at Waddesdon Manor is so beautiful I thought it deserves a special post. I will talk about the manor another time. Michael Eden was born in 1955, in Blackburn, Lancashire. He trained as a potter, before completing an MPhil at Royal Collefe of Art. Using 3D modelling and printing, […]

The Oxfordshire Museum. Garden

The Oxfordshire Museum

The Oxfordshire Museum, also known as Oxfordshire County Museum is a small, free museum in the town of Woodstock. It was close to the camping site, so it was a perfect place to go to. We went there in the afternoon, on the day we’ve got to the camping site. It was too late in […]

Bramall Hall in Manchester

Bramall Hall, Manchester

I’ve been to Bramall Hall in Manchester last year and I loved it, even though it was a brief visit as we got there only one hour before closing time. I didn’t have my DSLR with me, so I went again this year, so I can have a better look and take pictures too. There […]

Vegetarian lunch at Peak View Tearooms

Peak View Tearooms

I went to the Peak View Tearooms before, for my birthday a few years ago. I thought it will be nice to stop there again. There is a pub too, but I prefer the views at the tearooms, so instead of going to the monthly pub, we went to the tearooms. This means that I […]
