Summer is officially here, and it’s hot outside. Which is great, because there are so many amazing places to visit in England when the weather is warm (and even when it isn’t). If you’re looking for a quick getaway this season, today I bring you 5 lovely summer day trips from London.
Summer has arrived. London’s weather is cheerfully sunny, and the forecast looks even brighter. I’m spending as much time as I can outdoors, and some of my favorite places to do so are pubs with beer gardens in London.
My favorite thing about returning to a place after a long absence is realizing how much I missed the first time. It’s been 9 years since my last day trip to Winchester, and now that I’m back I’m starting to appreciate its details a lot more. From hidden gardens to riverside walks, there’s so much to love about this city.
One of the most common questions I get asked is “what kind of camera do you use?”. From blog readers asking what is the best camera for London photography to Instagram followers wondering what camera I use for social media, I get messages from a lot of people. Some of the information is on the FAQ page of my blog, but today I want to answer in more depth.
It’s not often I travel to the same place twice. Part of the reason I love traveling is that I enjoy discovering somewhere new every time. But sometimes a destination is so special that I can’t help going back. One such location is the Scottish Hebrides. After an amazing week sailing in the Hebrides last year, my friends and I booked ourselves in for the same week this year. So I’m off again for 7 days of sailing in the Scottish Hebrides.
Three years ago this month I ran a reader survey on the A Lady in London blog, and today I’m excited to announce the third edition. This is your chance to quickly share your feedback so the blog can be a place where you hear about the things that interest you most. And like always, I’m doing a giveaway.
It’s summer, and if you’re like me you’re itching for a weekend getaway or two. While I usually look to Europe for my shorter trips, I’ve learned over the years that the UK has as much to offer as the continent. And while most of my British weekend breaks are to Scotland, I’ve had some amazing getaways in Wales. If you’re in the mood for a Welsh adventure, here are A Lady in London’s 5 picks for weekend breaks in Wales.
I was having dinner overlooking the Thames the other week and I started thinking about how many amazing places there are along the river in London. As I soaked up the view, I picked out my favorites. Now I want to share them, so today I bring you 21 amazing places to see on the Thames in London.
Menorca is a little piece of paradise in the Mediterranean. I’ve wanted to visit this Spanish island for years, and now that I’ve been invited to speak at an influencer conference called MustSeeMenorca, I’ve finally gotten my chance. I have 5 days in Menorca to take in the highlights, and each day I find something new to love.
