Shugborough - outside the main house

Shugborough

Last weekend I’ve been to Shugborough with my husband. We’ve had a lovely day out and now is time to share some pictures from there. It was a sunny and warm day, perfect for a day out. There are lots of walks on the estate, but we didn’t have time for long walks. We’ve decided […]

Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace

A couple of days ago I blogged about the Butterfly House at Blenheim Palace, now is time to blog about Blenheim Palace. It is such a lovely place with so many wonderful things to see. I loved it and I would gladly visit it again, as I haven’t seen everything. Blenheim Palace is known for […]
