Entrance to Tredegar House

Tredegar House

Tredegar House looked very impressive and I wanted to visit it. So, on our holiday in Wales, we stopped by. Unfortunately we didn’t allow for a long time to visit the house and we didn’t get to stay as long as we wanted to. The fact that the staff and volunteers there were so nice […]

Ashmolean. Outside

Ashmolean

Ashmolean is University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, founded in 1683. Is free to visit and is worth visiting it. If you want to see more about their special exhibitions and details about the museum, you can check the website. The museum hosts many fascinating artefacts and I picked a few to show […]

The Turnpike, Pub in Oxfordshire

The Turnpike

I’ve been to The Turnpike recently, a gorgeous old pub in Oxfordshire. I passed by it a few times and I was curious how it looks inside. We got there at 11am, too early to have lunch and we also had a big breakfast, as we always do. The Turnpike is over 200 years old, […]

Liverpool Medical Institution

I went to the Liverpool Medical Institution many times since I moved here because they always seem to organize very interesting activities for events such as Light Night.

New Inn Mill

New Inn Mill

My husband and I went to the New Inn Mill for Heritage Open Days. This year I was very careful and I’ve booked tickets way in advance (from 1st August). It was a really good thing, as we were told all the tours were fully booked by the middle of last month. Today the mill […]

Knowsley Safari Park – September

My husband and I bought a membership at Knowsley Safari Park, and so I thought it would be nice to share pictures from there every month, to see how the weather changes and how the animals change with it. After this short introductory post, the others will more likely be “pictures only” kind of posts. […]

High Park Reservoir

High Park Reservoir

These days we are visiting lots of places with Heritage Open Days and the first one we’ve been to was the High Park Reservoir. We tried to visit it before, but it was so popular that we didn’t manage to get in, despite them allowing up to 60 people per tour. This time we arrived […]
