The long weekend is almost upon us so many families are looking for things to do and make the most of 2017’s last, precious Bank Holiday weekend before Christmas. With this in mind I've put together a list of all the things you can do in Bath so you can get planning for your next mini break over the long weekend or later in the year.
A few weeks back I was invited by BMW on a very exciting press trip to Munich to celebrate the launch of their new BMW 4 Series Convertible. We arrived on a gloomy Tuesday morning and headed straight to our hotel, the uber-chic Flushing Meadows. One cup of coffee later, I was out exploring the beautiful city before the rain made an appearance.
What better way to celebrate Summer than packing a picnic and escaping to the great outdoors? England offers an abundance of great places for picnic. From charming coastal spots and sandy beaches, to magical woodlands and rolling countryside, there's no shortage of places to unpack your hamper and bask in the glorious sun.
Make the most of the sunshine and your days off and discover the best things to do in London this weekend. Includes culture, art, shopping, food and drink.
As clouds give way to sunshine, it's time to enjoy London at its brightest and best. Although considered to be outlandishly expensive, and sometimes with fair reasons - there are cocktails that cost the same as our weekly grocery shopping - a day out in London doesn't have to involve spending a small fortune.
With an impossible-to-beat location in the heart of Knightsbridge, among the city's finest luxury shopping, Jumeirah Carlton Tower is home to 216 rooms including 58 suites. Most have spectacular London views - from the London Eye to Big Ben and the Shard - the breathtaking views could be admired from both our bedroom and the sophisticated living area.
Compared to an overseas holiday, a London staycation is more affordable and some activities are even free, so you'll have fun without breaking the bank. Sometimes we have to step outside our own shoes and see the city through a tourist's eye. Yes, other places may sound more fun and exotic, but from a foreigner's perspective London is an incredible city, rich in history, culture and so much more.
Eindhoven is a vibrant city that grew from being a mere village to Netherlands' fifth largest city thanks to electronics giant Philips. During the 90's, many of the iconic factory buildings in Eindhoven were abandoned by Philips forcing the city to reinvent itself. Now a busy university town, home to a large collection of tourist attractions, from art museums to historic churches and galleries.
Want to take a dip in the beautiful outdoors of the French capital? The iconic Molitor was once the most famous swimming pools in Paris, until it closed in 1989 and spent the next 20 years escaping demolition.
