You would; at Rosewood

London isn’t short of swanky, expensive and imposing hotels with presence – but Rosewood excels with – as its own publicity states –  ‘a sense of place’ This landmark Edwardian architectural leviathan reposes in splendour in High Holborn, very much a part of the establishment, yet with a youthful rebelliousness and edgy persona that makes it ideal for the avant garde traveller who doesn’t like to be outwardly ostentatious...

Life for the living in Lulworth

To happen across sleepy Lulworth village and its surroundings you wouldn’t expect them to have always been a hub of English entertainment. To be fair, much of this revolved around the elegant and imposing Lulworth Castle, designed and built primarily as a hunting lodge but with the express purpose of being a venue for court and society parties. Built in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, even as a ‘faux...

Atypically Italian in Rome

Our guest writers Jamie & Iza enjoy a weekend in Rome that’s a little out of the ordinary. Our ‘mission’ in Rome is simply to visit as many historical sights and eat as much Italian food as possible during our weekend stay! Therefore, being based in central Rome is going to be essential. Its so easy to end up going around in circles to find a good convenient place to stay so we’re especially pleased to...

Ancient & Modern – a hymn for Rouen

The more common use of ‘Ancient & Modern’ is with reference to the Church of England hymnal songs for refreshing worship but it’s perhaps strangely appropriate to the medieval and modern facades…and character of Rouen, France. That’s not to say that one isn’t overwhelmed by religious presence within the city’s confines, called the ‘city of a hundred spires’ by Victor Hugo, what with the imposing Rouen Cathedral that...
