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 […]

Double Fantasy

Double Fantasy

Double Fantasy is a special exhibition at Liverpool Museum. I mentioned before that we’ve visited it after having lunch at Castle Street Townhouse last week.

209 Women

I’ve seen on twitter that a new exhibition opened at Open Eye Gallery on the docks in Liverpool. It is entitled 209 Women and it marks 100 years of women suffrage. The exhibition features 209 portraits of the UK’s women MPs, shot entirely by photographers that identify as women. I think the whole idea of […]

Liverpool International Horse Show. Horse Jumping

Liverpool International Horse Show

I was considering going to the Liverpool International Horse Show, and when I saw tickets on offer on groupon, I knew I had to buy them. I got bronze tickets for me and my husband, not the cheapest, but not expensive either. Each show lasts for about 4 hours and I was very keen to […]
