Lytham Hall

Lytham Hall was the last place I’ve been to for Heritage Open Days this year. I shared lots of pictures, so please enjoy. The burger we had for lunch was vegan, which was awesome.

Morecambe

Morecambe

Last weekend we went to Morecambe. It was a lovely day, sunny and great for walking on the beach. It was also very interesting to see the Morecambe Winter Gardens, an old theatre which fights for its survival. Isn’t this a gorgeous view? This is the outside of the Morecambe Winter Gardens. It was open […]

Walk in the Lake District

After a very busy week, in the last two days we had a bit of time off and we took advantage to go for a walk in the Lake District on Saturday. We were part of a tour and I had my mask on for the whole 3 hours, including when we climbed on top […]

Wightwick Manor

Wightwick Manor

We’ve been to Wightwick Manor last week. As they still have the winter opening hours, we couldn’t visit the house as not all of it is open to the public and we were a bit after their cut-off time for entrance to the house. It did not matter, as we had Festus with us and […]

Brighton

Christmas is approaching fast, but I like to take a bit of time to reminisce on my holiday in Brighton last month. I already shared a few posts from it, the vegan lunch at Happy Maki, the vegetarian lunch at Terre Ă  Terre, and I talked about my visit to the amazing Royal Pavilion. This […]

Place where Harold died

1066 Battlefield and Abbey

1066 Battlefield and Battle Abbey are one of the most impressive places I’ve been to this year. On 14th October 1066, King Harold of England was defeated by William of Normandy. I’ve seen a few documentaries about the battle, I read a book on Matilda, William’s wife, so you can easily imagine my excitement to […]

The Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion

When I told friends that I’m going to Brighton, the first thing I heard was: The Royal Pavilion. Of course the Royal Pavilion was high on my list of things to see in Brighton. It is such an icon that it must be visited. I saw the Pavilion in TV documentaries, but I didn’t imagine […]

Ruins of Lewes priory

Lewes Priory & Lewes Castle

Lewes is a lovely little town with plenty of things to see, including Anne of Cleves House, Lewes Priory and Lewes Castle with Barbican House Museum, in the same location. I’ve decided to talk about both the castle and the priory in a single post, as I have a lot of posts waiting to be […]

Dinner set at the Michelham Priory

Michelham Priory

Michelham Priory is in East Sussex, a former Augustine Priory. Unlike most priories which are now in ruins, this one was turned into a country house. On their website they have a short essay about the history of the priory. I’m going to share a few highlights, but make sure you read it if you […]

Entrance to Anne of Cleves House Museum

Anne of Cleves House Museum

Anne of Cleves House Museum is a gorgeous 15th century timber-framed house in East Sussex. It is called Anne of Cleves House because it was part of the annulment settlement she received from King Henry VIII in 1541. She never lived in the property, so this post is more a pictures-only kind of post. They […]
