Visiting London? Consider a day trip from London to the ancient city of Winchester. An hour away from London, Winchester is a beautiful city to explore.
The window displays at Selfridges Department Store in London never cease to amaze and inspire. This year each of the twelve Oxford Street windows at Selfridges are dedicated to a sign of the zodiac. Set against an illuminated backdrop of outer space, the Christmas window displays depict the star zodiac signs’ most recognizable characteristics.
One of the places I wanted to visit the most on our trip to England was Windsor Castle. Twenty-one miles west of London sits one of the great homes of England’s Royal Family. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and is an official residence of Her Majesty The Queen.
I had such grand plans when I learned I would have a day to sightsee in beautiful Nottingham, England. I searched online, looked through my travel books and even wrote to the Nottingham Tourism Center to ask them to direct me to a few places that a visitor to the city should be sure to see. I knew I needed a plan since my stay would be so short.
