The Cavern Club Liverpool

Liverpool - home of the Beatles and the coolest/hippest city in England. The former is true and the latter is opinion. We dropped off our rental car yesterday morning and headed straight for the Beatles Story Museum at Albert Dock. The dock is absolutely beautiful packed with restaurants and museums. There are two bands in… Continue reading The Cavern Club Liverpool

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

So technically we didn't go to a museum today but an "attraction". For the sake of this blog, however, we went to a museum - The World of Beatrix Potter. I can understand why they don't call it a museum. On the other hand, though, it was a building that contained various objects that told… Continue reading The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction

Hadrian’s Wall & Derwent Museum

How can you improve a long road trip? Go to a museum! Whilst driving from York to the Lake District we detoured slightly to visit Birdoswald Fort and Hadrian's Wall. The Fort itself was quite impressive. However, I really enjoyed seeing the remnants of Hadrian's Wall. Birdoswald is where you can see the longest remaining… Continue reading Hadrian’s Wall & Derwent Museum

York Cold War Bunker & York Castle Museum

They were phenomenal. When I saw that York had something similar, I just could not resist. We arrived bright and… Continue reading York Cold War Bunker & York Castle Museum

I really don't want to because I like to think that every museum has something to offer - something positive to write about. Wollaton Hall, however, has been the exception. It is a Hall but it also claims… Continue reading Wollaton Hall & Workhouse in Southwell

Ashmolean Museum Broadway

On our way to Nottingham we visited our final Cotswolds village, Broadway. One of the main reasons why I wanted to visit this town is because it's home to an offshoot of the Ashmolean Museum. The setting for this museum is wonderful. Broadway is such a beautiful town with so many quaint cafes and shops. Even… Continue reading Ashmolean Museum Broadway

Winchcombe Police Museum

I was so thrilled to see that the beautiful Cotswold Village of Winchcombe had a police museum! It was one room filled with objects here and there and folders containing village ancestry piled high. Such a beautiful local museum. The first section told the story of Winchcombe. Basically how the town was constructed, then reconstructed, then… Continue reading Winchcombe Police Museum
