Natural History Museum

I have wanted to visit this museum for quite a while now (it’s on the bucket list!) and wasn’t going to miss the opportunity when I had to travel to London recently. The NHM is simply huge, from the outside it looks both imposing and attractive in it’s coloured brick design but you have to…

Fitzrovia Doorways

I had a few hours to kill whilst in London and took little Izzy for a walk in her pram but I needed something to do myself as we wandered around. Walking past a rather extravagant door I thought “why not create a mini photo project?” – so I did and here are some of…

It is based in Dudley in the West Midlands and features, streets, buildings and transport principally from the Victorian era. Each aspect is built and furnished in great detail according to the era which it represents.…
