Having become members of English heritage last year (and setting ourselves a challenge), our guidebook went with us EVERYWHERE. From sitting on a car park overlooking Hadrian’s Wall thinking ‘where next?’ to stopping off at a Midlands tea room for the day’s inspiration. Being particularly precious about books there is nothing better than a crisp edition and that new-book smell. But this is no ordinary book.
Drawing people from all over the world, London is jam-packed full of sights and sounds to explore. Taking a weekend trip there might make it seem like you couldn’t possibly fit it in so I’ve rounded up my very top things to do during your time in England’s capital city, all for under £50.
As lovers of all things history and castle-related, England and Wales are a treasure trove of days out and out-of-the-blue nerdy visits. That’s why, when visiting the lovely Kenilworth Castle recently we were more than taken in by the genius salesman that was the membership stand man. However, we also love a good bargain, so jumping on a year’s membership we decided to set ourselves a challenge.
