I’m proud to be from Great Britain and hail from south east London in England. I always thought I’d have to venture to the other side of the world to truly put myself to the test. I’ve recently learnt that there’s just as much adventure and wonderful challenge when you visit England too though. Obviously, make sure to travel to London. The street art in Shoreditch is awesome. There are so many places to visit in England outside of London though! I recommend a trip to the island of the Isle of Wight and I hope to get my hiking boots on soon and revisit the Lake District and Peak District.

Got a layover in London? Thinking about planning a stopover to see Big Ben and looking for things to do in London? Here are my plans of action for you to mix and match to experience the best 24 hours in London!
Travelling to London with kids doesn’t have to be difficult. Even if you’re just taking care of them and they’re not yours like me! Now that I’m in my 30s, my friends have kids and I need to become Auntie Alice. As a result, I’ve compiled a list of the best things to do during a London visit with kids.
Wondering where to eat in Leeds? If you’re looking for the best local and independent eateries, bars, market stalls and restaurants in Leeds City Centre, this post is for you. Ellen, a lovely friend of mine, who is incredibly passionate and excited about what West Yorkshire has to offer within its culinary delights, has just launched the fantastic Leeds Food Tours.
If there’s one place that I could live in the UK, Brighton is it. I used to live here in my 20s, but rent has doubled since then so umm…the north of England it is for now. But my word, Brighton is one of the coolest places in the UK and an awesome weekend in Brighton is soooo much fun!
Whether you’ve just finished school, or you’re well into your professional career and just need a blimin’ break, you may have the idea of taking an epic gap year for yourself! But hold up. Gap years cost money and time. So why not change the rules a bit and opt for a Microgap? Why not experience a gap year exactly how you want to in just a couple of days, with the time and money that you have! Even better – opt for the adventure outdoor activities Sheffield has to offer.
I’m sitting on a trusty tree trunk with ten other festival campers; my feet gently sinking into the soil beneath me. I’m holding a cup of fresh beer in my right hand, whilst my left gently taps on my thigh in time with the flowing rhythm of the guitar. Dum dum dum-dum dum…
‘Come visit Liverpool’ said my mate Tim. ‘There’s so many things to do in Liverpool city’. I conjured up dreamy images of riding The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour Bus, sipping coffee with hipster Liverpudlian artists, sailing along the River Mersey; all whilst listening to the locals’ accent (my word, their accent is so good!)
It wasn’t until I left Britain to travel the world, that I truly understood my love for the UK, Europe and all of the adorable characteristics our continent possesses.
Within 48 hours I traversed mighty hills and sunk into epic sunsets. I chilled out on crisp sky-blue harbours, looked across horizons with horses and flung myself into kickass off-road driving. Taking just a 3.5 hour drive from London (plus a jolly 45 minute ferry trip), you’ll see the scenery morph from city slickers to rural explorers as you venture to the Isle of Wight.
