This post is about a city a bit closer to home. Being from the UK, we have visited London several times over the years. To be honest, we probably don’t appreciate it as much as we should because it has so many attractions that it should rank among the best cities in Europe to visit. This guide will give you a 2-day itinerary, encompassing the … Continue reading London: 2 Day Itinerary
On our visit to London, we decided to stay out of the city for a quieter (and cheaper) experience. Given that we were combining our trip down south with a visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, we chose Watford as our base, staying at the Premier Inn in the centre of the town.

This Harvester is located in an ideal location for those wanting to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour, just 10 minutes drive to get from the restaurant to the Studios.

May Bank Holidays are a great opportunity for a getaway without having to take any holiday from work. This year, the chosen destination was London. Well, Watford to be exact. Whilst we did visit our capital on one day of our trip (more on that in a later post), the main attraction we went down south to see was the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Personally, … Continue reading Harry Potter Studio Tour – May 2019
