Exploring Stratford Upon Avon

Sunday, 16 October 2016


I have to say, hand on heart, the medieval market town of Stratford Upon Avon is one of my favourite places in England. (Not to be confused with London's more concrete version on the Central line)! Luckily for me, my Auntie & Uncle live here, so it gives me a great excuse to jump on a train out of London and into the fresh air of Shakespeare's birth place.

So when my family invited William and I up for the weekend with the promise of a Mexican food feast and Bananagrams, we obviously jumped at the chance. Not just for the Mexican food feast though...promise... ;)

We had such a lovely weekend rambling along the river, seeing the bustling barges with swans gliding behind with the knowledge of them being the best tourist traps for bread crusts! Ducking into shops and pubs, munching on the scrummiest fish and chips at The Dirty Duck ale house just behind The Globe theatre and accidentally stumbling into the all year round Christmas Shop... AKA the.best.shop.ever.

And with all the womping willows hanging over the river, it makes me feel like I'm in a Harry Potter film :) So really, what's not to love.

3 Year Anniversary and a Victoria Sponge!

I've been treated like an absolute princess!

The 4th of October marked 3 whole years of William putting up with me in his life. I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty impressive, seeing how temperamental relationships can be these days, (and how much I scrutinise his washing up methods) I know I count my blessings daily to have found such a good egg :)
