The Natural History Museum, London

Cheap days out in London are hard to come by, you can nip out for a coffee and have spent £20 before you say ‘Mocha Latte’. That’s one of the reason I love visiting  The Natural History Museum. With free entry and enough exhibitions to fill an entire day (with a lunch break) it’s the perfect way to enjoy a day in London without parting with too much of your hard-earned cash.The museum is easy to spot (as it somewhat resembles Hogwarts) and even has its own exit at South Kensington Station,

Swan Lake, The Royal Opera House

For my birthday i was lucky enough to be taken to see Swan Lake performed by the Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera house. Possibly one of the most famous ballets of all time, Swan Lake conveys the tragic love story of Prince Siegfried and Odette the Swan Princess.

Bea’s Vintage Tea Room, Bath.

This weekend a I took a trip to Bath to visit a friend, we decided to visit a highly recommended 1940’s style tearoom (Which can be found on Saville Row next to the Assembly Rooms and Fashion Museum) Bea’s Vintage Tea Rooms

The phrase ‘transported back in time’ is often used and rarely deserved, Bea’s however merits nothing left. Its bright, clean and decorative interior is cosy and inviting. The patisserie cabinet is home to a collection of mouth-watering cakes including; victoria sponge, coffee and ginger, lemon meringue pie and a glorious chocolate and ginger.
