I think I’ve seen England more than my own home country.. but it’s where my Wanderlust really comes to life…
My regular readers know how this goes.. I went to London & fell in love with the city. I’ve now been back 4 times and each time I go back, I see more of England as a result.
I can’t possibly show you just one photo now can I? So here are some of the favourite places I’ve visited in the country:
Lulworth Castle – Visiting Lulworth Castle happened on one of my favourite travel days ever. I loved this castle! Even though the interior had been destroyed by fire in the 1920’s, it still retained its amazingly symmetric shell.
Clyst St George – an unknown town to most people but it was the first places I visited a town where some of my ancestors had come from (apart from London) and it still holds a special place in my heart.
Castle Combe – my first real experience with the Cotswolds and I loved it! Despite the less that perfect day with the rain, it was still really lovely walking down the road looking at these amazingly gorgeous homes.
Lyme Park – although my Mr Darcy didn’t appear, it was still a pleasure to wander the grounds of this beautiful stately home that was the setting for Pemberley in the BBC’s Pride & Prejudice. I mean picture perfect isn’t it!!
Grosmont – I am so glad I didn’t listen to the man in Pickering who told me not to bother going to Grosmont the day I got the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, because I LOVED this gorgeous wee town. It was super cute and I wanted to stay longer than the one hour I had allocated.
Pateley Bridge – I think that Pateley Bridge has to be my favourite place in England (apart from London of course). This small Yorkshire village stole my heart from the moment I drove through the town & saw the bunting. It is as quintessentially British as a town can get.
And then there’s London!
St Paul’s Cathedral – I had wanted to see this church since I was nine years old when I saw Charles & Diana getting married in the beautiful Wren designed building. I can’t even describe how much I admire this stunning piece of architecture.
