An afternoon at Kew

Kew gardens, also known as the Royal botanic gardens, is set in 300 acres of land in the London borough of Richmond and is home to the largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world. I had last visited Kew gardens 10 years ago with my eldest son on a school trip … Continue reading An afternoon at Kew

Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

The Geffrye museum, situated on Kingsland road in East London, explores the home and home life from 1600 to the present day. It reminds me of a historic Ikea only you cant enter the rooms an try out the furniture. The museum is set in beautiful 18th-century Grade I-listed almshouses of the Ironmongers' Company and … Continue reading Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

The chocolate museum – Brixton

I am not sure I know anybody that isn't a fan of chocolate, I know that I absolutely love it! I have often wondered how anybody managed to discover such a great tasting product so when I realised that there was a chocolate museum just down the road I had to go and visit. Hidden away … Continue reading The chocolate museum – Brixton

7 deadly sins at the London Dungeon

The 7 deadly sins at the London dungeon is an adult only themed food evening running on a Friday throughout June. This is definitely an experience like no other, not sure where else combines the facts of a museum told through theatrical performance with food and drink thrown in which makes it a great night … Continue reading 7 deadly sins at the London Dungeon

Jubilee market – Covent garden

With the summer season upon us it is a great time to shop outdoors at the many markets that London has to offer. When I was younger I spent loads of time at markets, from food shopping with my mum at Hoxton market to clothes shopping with my friends down Petticoat lane, but I have … Continue reading Jubilee market – Covent garden

Paris – exploring La Defense

I imagine Paris is a city similar to London in the sense that it has well known sights and attractions, particularly in the centre, but also has lesser known areas that are also filled with interesting things to see. As soon as we stepped off the metro at La Defense our first thought was that it must be the Canary … Continue reading Paris – exploring La Defense

Robots @ the science museum

Who would have thought that robots went back 500 years! This fascinating show begins with a very lifelike baby robot to greet you at the door and is followed by some other pretty freaky, yet interesting humanoids throughout. You can really see how far technology has moved on as you move through the rooms of … Continue reading Robots @ the science museum

Photography project – Architecture

The reason I first started a blog is because I thought it would be a great outlet and a place that I could regularly share my photography. I also love getting out and exploring places and the two work perfectly together to make Oh Pretty City. I do obviously post photos of the places I have … Continue reading Photography project – Architecture

Described as the worlds leading museum of Art and Design, the Victoria and Albert is definitely one of my favourites. I decided to go and visit to see if there were any new exhibitions within the photography and theatre and performance rooms plus it was also on my list of 10 places I wanted to visit and … Continue reading Victoria & Albert museum

The British Museum

I am surprised I have never been to the British museum before, especially as it has been the most visited attraction in the UK for the past ten years! I went to look at some specific artefacts for a project I'm working on and didn't have time to stick around but I was really taken … Continue reading The British Museum
