Hartfield is a small village in the Ashdown Forest, where the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh were born. Josh and I went to Hartfield a few times last autumn, including this one in early September with his grandparents. If you’re looking to go somewhere in East Sussex, Hartfield is worth considering, with treats at Pooh Corner and a walk to Pooh Sticks Bridge. Continue reading and you’ll see why I liked Hartfield so much! Hartfield Pooh Corner Tea Room Pooh Corner is a Winnie-the-Pooh-themed tea room. It has both indoor and outdoor seating available. Even though it was a weekday, we made a reservation to avoid any waiting just in case. We also requested an outdoor table during booking to be on the safer side from the COVID-19 risk for Josh’s grandparents. Tasty Lunch and Tea at Pooh Corner A lot of dishes on the menu looked tempting and we went for…

Despite tons of exciting things to do in London, this megacity isn’t all the UK has to offer. I strongly recommend you to spare some time to have a day trip from London to indulge in history, culture, nature, and countryside scenery. Continue to have a read on my list of recommended day trips from London! The following day trip destinations are in alphabetical order and include travel time from London, major attractions, and for whom they are suitable: Bath Bath is full of history and culture where you can find traces of various historical time periods, including the Roman, Medieval, and Georgian periods. How Bath has got its name as ‘Bath’ is in the Roman Baths. During the Medieval period, it was the centre of the wool industry, while it welcomed many holidaymakers as a spa city in the 18th century. Travel time to Bath from London: 1.5~2 hours…

This time we are about to head for Windsor as a quick trip from London, since it is less than an hour away from London. Windsor has a lot to offer for visitors, and among many attractions I am going to share my visits to Windsor Castle and Legoland Windsor with some useful tips. Each attraction can take almost a whole day, so if you plan to visit both you will need to stay a night in Windsor. How to Go to Windsor from London There are two train stations where you can get off in Windsor: Windsor & Eton Central and Windsor & Eton Riverside. The train options from London take between 30 – 55 minutes, depending on which station you choose. 1. London Paddington – Windsor & Eton Central Takes between 26 – 39 minutesNeeds one transfer in Slough 2. London Waterloo – Windsor & Eton Riverside Takes 54…

You might have heard of the ‘Cotswolds’ when it comes to holidays in the UK. The Cotswolds indicates a region in south central England that has the Cotswolds hills. Its landscape is so beautiful that it is an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). As the map below shows it spans across 6 counties in England: Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. <image from: www.cotswolds.com> If you were keen to see the cute, little countryside in England and encountered the Cotswolds, what you need to do now is to decide where in the Cotswolds. Although I haven’t managed to visit every place, I would like to introduce some of those I have been to. Hopefully the following list tempts you to pick destinations of the Cotswolds! P.S. I am going to continuously add when I get to visit more of them – stay tuned! The Cotswolds is made up of lots of places…

Not until this month did I ever visit Brighton, despite almost two years living in London in total that is just about an hour away. Perhaps I thought it would be so easy to just get a train down to the city from London that I actually put it aside over other trips that are harder to make. Now that I made a visit to Brighton, I feel a bit regretful for why I hadn’t been to this awesome place much earlier! Yes, so I went there again after two weeks from the first trip….I think I may be in love with Brighton. As a small note, some of the photos are from my friend Or Asawawilaswong during my first visit to Brighton with her a few weeks ago. As I was taking videos with GoPro, I asked for her permission to share her great photos with you on this post. Other photos are mine from another trip a…

The first travel destination in the UK I would like to share is Seven Sisters, located between Seaford and Eastbourne in East Sussex. Being the 3rd visit this time after ones in 2012 and 2014, I feel it is totally legit to share what I have seen. If you like having a walk with the nature, this is the place for you. The slope of the Downs is fairly gentle, so it will be a nice, relaxing getaway during the weekend from London. Seven Sisters seems to become more and more beloved particularly by Korean visitors, as I could see the increasing number of Korean travellers during my biennial trips. There certainly are a few reasons for this popularity that I can think of, which you might agree as well: 1. The Comforting Colour Combination from the Nature Photo taken by Or Asawawilaswong Seven Sisters is part of the many chalk cliffs along the Channel. The bright…
