Kensington London England UK

London is a fantastic place to visit but I particularly like Kensington. If you get the chance visit Kensington Palace go! The palace is really interesting and you get to see how the other half live! We saved money too as Kensington Palace accepted Tesco vouchers, so happy days!

Within the palace are items from Queen Victoria and Princess Diana. I am an architecture and history lover so a trip like this is wonderful. The great thing about Kensington Palace grounds is the green area. London can feel claustrophobic at times and the grounds surrounding the palace I find calming. It is a definite must do when in London.

Lincoln England Lincolnshire UK

We love to have regular mini trips in random places, some little villages and then some city breaks. One place I love is Lincoln in England. A beautiful city in the English East Midlands.  There are some lovely hotels and also good budget hotels around. Plenty of good old fashioned ‘pub grub’ (pub food) and beautiful buildings. If you have a few days and you are in the area go and visit, you will not be disappointed!
