Exploring Regents Canal with GoBoat London – AD invited to review

When we visited ZSL London Zoo last summer we spent some time walking along part of Regents Canal which runs alongside the famous Snowdon Aviary.  We said at the time that one day we’d need to come back and explore the area in more detail.  Well we got that chance at the weekend when we…Continue reading Exploring Regents Canal with GoBoat London – AD invited to review

Exploring Hever Castle

Exploring Hever Castle

When we were driving around Kent last month, visiting poorly relatives I spotted the sign for somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for years.  I’m not one for going out for lunch on Mother’s Day, I’d much rather go out for the day and visit somewhere new, in my opinion it makes for a far more…Continue reading Exploring Hever Castle
