National Trust and English Heritage

For my birthday, in November last year, hubby bought a National Trust membership for us. We’ve visited a few before becoming members, but we were reluctant as there aren’t many properties around Liverpool. We were wrong.

Knowsley safari park

For hubby’s name day (he is so lucky, he has 2/year), he decided he wants to go to Knowsley safari park. I was surprised, as I’m the one suggesting this kind of things. We’ve been there last year and he enjoyed it very much, especially the lion enclosure. This Park is amazing, we didn’t even […]

Last time when we were in Conwy, visiting other NT properties, we discovered a small local bakery with delicious cakes. It’s called Popty Conwy Bakery and it’s near Aberconwy House, […]

Dunham Massey

Dunham Massey is a National Trust estate in Cheshire, it has a deer-park, beautiful gardens and a lovely house. This year marks the centenary of WW1 and the house was transformed again in a sanctuary for wounded soldiers. I had no idea the deers, even if they are still wild, they aren’t bothered by people.
