England

What is England about? There are so many things that come to mind, but the first ones that we can think of are history, tradition, royalty, red (and blue!) phone boxes, afternoon tea, scones, biscuits, fries that are called chips, chips that are called crisps, ginger princes, West End theatre, doubledeckers, lovely accents, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond… oh, and now we’ve wandered off to film tourism again. But that’s what we’re about, so let’s run with it.

England to us is not only one of the most interesting, diverse travel destinations in the world. It’s also the home for hundreds of TV shows and movies, and a long list to favorite actors and actresses.

  • 2016 marked the twentieth anniversary of one of the longest-running love affairs of my life: that with Mister William Shakespeare. So when we realized that we had time to squeeze in a visit to his birthplace of Stratford-Upon-Avon after the film festival in Bath and even got the…

  • What is this magical forest that attracts all kinds of talented filmmakers? The makers of Star Wars, Doctor Who and many others, they’ve all been down to a forest called Puzzlewood to film some of their most attractive exterior scenes. The presence of green screens while filming will always…

  • If you have a fun group of friends with slightly different interests, here’s the perfect way of planning a weekend in London: try a little bit of everything. We managed to get together for a fun long weekend in London with our little travel blogger squad We Make…

  • Although we usually stick with the slightly more affordable options while travelling – especially when on a two-month roadtrip – it’s sometimes so very nice to experience a little luxury. While visiting London with our blogger group, we stayed with One Aldwych for a fun night. And what a sweet treat…
