I have been to Go Ape several times now and it’s always something I enjoy doing! It’s a great adventurous and adrenaline filled way to spend time outdoors. The Thetford Forest location is around 1hr 30 from where I am in Essex, so it’s a nice easy UK day trip for me! There are 34 different locations all around the UK (and 14 locations in the USA…including 6 across the Midwest!). Here’s what to expect when visiting the Go Ape Thetford Forest location!Continue reading “High Ropes Climbing & Zip Lining at Go Ape Thetford Forest – England, UK”
I’ve been a fan of Bear Grylls for a while now, I’ve read his book, watched his TV shows AND NOW there is a Bear Grylls Adventure experience at the NEC in Birmingham UK. I’m writing this 2 days after my visit and I’m still in pain…in a good way. Me and my sis did a couple of the ‘upgrades’, we had a full on day and I used a lot of muscles that I’m not sure I’ve ever used before, so they are currently in recovery mode!
I once watched a video on Facebook (here’s the YouTube link) where a guy set up a ball pit in the middle of the street and asked people walking by if they were ‘too busy to have fun’. Most were business people on the way to work etc, you could see their dilemma, did they have time to take a minute for themselves and just do something fun? Ball pits are more commonly something associated with kids, but when I visited Ballie Ballerson, an adult ball pit bar in London, I can honestly say it brought a smile to my face and I left wishing that I could have stayed for longer because the time FLEW by!
Every person and their dog has heard of London’s Sky Garden, located in the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building. It has exploded in popularity and has found itself as one of the top free things to do in London. However, move over Sky Garden, there’s a new kid on the block! Literally! Just 0.1 mile, a 2 minute walk away, is ‘The Garden at 120’, and for now, it’s still relatively unknown!Continue reading “The Garden At 120: London’s Lesser Known Sky Garden”
A typical British thing to do is to go out for Afternoon Tea! I’ve been a fan of the smaller ‘Cream Tea’ version for as long as I can remember, thanks to my caravan holidays in Devon and Cornwall where they are extremely popular (St Agnes, Cornwall I’m looking at you with your GIANT scones)! As an Essex girl (not in the TOWIE sense) born and raised, with a Facebook friend list with lots of fellow Essex locals, I called on them for their favourite places to go for Afternoon Tea in Essex!Continue reading “18 Places To Go For The Best Afternoon Tea In Essex, UK!”
I’m not going to lie, London itineraries have been done to the death. Big Ben and Buckingham Palace will always appear on them and don’t get me wrong, for good reason. But I’ve come up with an alternative itinerary for 4 days in London, aimed at people that may have already seen all the icons. My itinerary has been INSPIRED by Harry Potter but with a difference, it’s not necessarily a guide to all the Harry Potter movie locations, it’s more a mash up between a classic sightseeing itinerary and a Harry Potter guide…using some of the Harry Potter locations to showcase some of the different AREAS of London that I believe are worth visiting!
Out of all the places in the world, Devon is the place I’ve been back to the most. I grew up taking caravan holidays to this area of the UK and it holds a special little place in my heart. I’m going to share with you some of my favourite North Devon Beaches and coastal towns, including how to find the ‘secret’ Broadsands Beach and the amazing caves located at Watermouth Cove! Something to note is that the North Devon coastline isn’t really sandy, it’s very rocky and rugged!Continue reading “A Guide To North Devon Beaches”
