Hidden City – The Enchanted Mirror

I love the Hidden City trails, these are self-guided trails through different areas of London that are suitable for small groups and are played through text messages. So, after playing The Hunt For The Cheshire Cat as well as Moriarty’s Game, I finally decided to try out The Enchanted Mirror! This one is based around…

The Cloak And Dagger Tour

Sunday night I got to attend The Cloak And Dagger Tour in Southwark, a slightly different history tour and theatre that seeks to highlight the lives of the common people and delves into the gritty parts of history. We gathered at the historically significant and interesting George Inn, a gorgeous and sprawling pub with many…

Glencoe, Loch Ness And Highlands Day-Tour

I’ve never done touristy day tours before, so I was a bit unsure of what to expect when I embarked on Timerbush Tours‘ 12.5hr Highlands tour. The tour promised to be one of the longest and most comprehensive day tours out there, so I was a bit weary at first. We were greeted by our guide…

Edinburgh – Underground Ghost Tour

One of the tours I did with Merkat Tours during my trip to Edinburgh was the Ghostly Underground tour. This one starts in the centre of the Royal Mile, with our energetic guide walking us through closes while telling us haunting stories about the history of the Old Town, before taking us to the old vaults under…

Dover Castle

After a long day at the white cliffs, our next destination was Dover Castle. We arrived rather late, so only had a little over an hour to explore, but as there was a special event at the tower after hours, we knew we’d have an opportunity to adventure through that area later in the day. The…

Cardiff Castle Ghost Tour

While on our trip to Cardiff, we had to give the Cardiff Castle Ghost Tour a shot! If you know me, you know I love creepy events and ghost tours of all kinds. As a disclaimer, I don’t actually believe in ghosts, but I have an opinion about paranormal phenomena. Ask me about it some time if…

Canterbury Ghost Tour

I am a big fan of ghost tours, not because I believe in the supernatural much, but because they usually come with great historical and social stories that I find interesting. They’re usually quite entertaining too. When we took a trip to Canterbury, I found the Canterbury Ghost Tour, which was highly recommended. Little did we…

Canterbury River Tours

I took a trip to Canterbury with a small group of friends recently and we decided to do quite a bit of the tourist program. One of the obvious stops is a river boat tour! Such a cheesy cliché, had to be done! We picked a random time slot and were led down a few…

Highgate Cemetery East and West

Early on Sunday morning, I headed to Highgate Cemetery, a landmark I’ve heard a read a lot about. Highgate Cemetery is a large, still operating cemetery in North London. It opened in 1839 as a prestigious, private cemetery, run for profit. In the 1970s, the operation was no longer profitable and left to decay and…
