Pour yourself another cuppa tea and enjoy looking at the many amazing side trips you can make outside of London.
Escape London is a guide for both locals as well as vacationers detailing little trips within an easy drive from the bustling city of London. While I would love to spend weeks on end getting to know London, these side trips and rural excursions are right up my alley. So much to see, so little time!
The books is separated into five categories:
- Culture and Heritage
- Gardens and Greenery
- Gastronomy and Luxury
- Family Friendly
- Cool and Quirky
There are also detailed maps and the book is loaded with great photos.
I like the photos of the gardens very much and the little tidbits on local cuisine most certainly has my attention.
I’m not religious at all but each trip we have made to Ireland and England has us in awe of the architecture. Churches in particular are absolute works of art, so much history to behold.
This is my way of armchair traveling at a time when we can’t take overseas trips. It’s a cheap way to travel and gives me ideas to note for a future trip.
