Chatsworth House | Drawing Cabinet & Sketch Galleries

If you haven't caught up on my previous posts of Chatsworth, you can do so here. The next stop as a small, dark space. Created in 2012 with the purpose of using as an exhibition room, it showcases a selection of the 3000 drawings and paintings predominantly collected by the 2nd and 3rd Duke.

Speedwell Cavern, Castleton & Glossop

As I mentioned in my first post on Chatsworth House, we took advantage of the fact that we had a wedding up country the weekend before the Platty Jubes and decided to set off for a camping trip straight from the wedding. A great idea in theory -a bit harder in reality when you're trying… Continue reading Speedwell Cavern, Castleton & Glossop

Chatsworth House | Great Apartments & State Rooms

The next part of the house that we saw was the Great Apartments and the State Drawing Room. These rooms and the ones which followed were all sealed up and had the curtains drawn so at times it got a bit stuffy for me and I think this is when my energy started to drop… Continue reading Chatsworth House | Great Apartments & State Rooms

Back then it would've been used for… Continue reading Chatsworth House | The Chapel & The Oak Room

Chatsworth House

I was around eleven years old when I saw an episode of a documentary series about great houses in Britain and the episode which I saw revolved around Chatsworth House. I feel in love. Ever since it has been high on my places to visit and it was when we were away for the week… Continue reading Chatsworth House

Sundays: Greenwich Park

A Sunday in the park is probably the epitome of relaxation and restoration for a week ahead. As I've touched on here before, Greenwich is one of my favourite places all year around. It will always have such a special place in my heart and I just love it. The pavilion is the perfect place… Continue reading Sundays: Greenwich Park

Highgate Cemetery | East Cemetery

Oof, I don't know where to start with this beautiful place - yes, yes I just used the word beautiful to describe a cemetery. You're thinking I must be mad, but give me chance to sway you. I should start at the beginning and in a way, explain myself. I've always been drawn to the… Continue reading Highgate Cemetery | East Cemetery
