dining with disraeli

Days out: Hughenden Manor

"Get in the car!" I cried in despair. M & K were reluctant but we persisted with our mild threat. "You may have been there before, but I can't remember if I have or not. So hush, we're going." 

When you've got a free day and the kids are on holiday, choosing a place to visit which will tick the following list is never easy. 

* Close to home - (High Wycombe) ✓
* Cheap or free entrance - (Free as we are National Trust members) ✓
* Entertaining for both adults and kids - (Kids trails, beautiful scenery, cafe, garden) ✓

On this occasion, we managed it. Just!

travel trumps guide to shoreditch

London's artistic region

As you step out of Liverpool Street Station you'd be mistaken for thinking that you have entered the business district of the city of London. In fact, you have, but hidden behind the high-rise offices, you'll find one of London's most artistic and trendiest districts; Shoreditch. Incorporating Brick Lane, and Spitalfields market, this area is crammed full of creativity, boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants galore. Trust me, this is one area of London you need to visit on your travels.
