A Weekend Jaunt.........


This weekend we headed off to Oxfordshire. 

For some time I wanted to visit Warwick Castle so we decided that we would stay locally and have a day out with a picnic.


Sadly I wasn't that impressed with Warwick Castle, The rooms inside the main part of the castle are Victorian and  are beautiful but i felt i would have liked a bit more information about the rooms / era.

After our picnic, we decided to leave and drive into Warwick town. It was so beautiful. everywhere there were quiescently English building that must have such a colorful story to tell.

After leaving Warwick Castle we ventured into Warwick town, it was so very pretty. We found a little Historic Tea shop called Brethrens tea rooms. 
 The Bretherns was established in 1571 but can be dated back to 1383 as a kitchen that was in constant use.  Of course we had some refreshment here to take in the breathtaking building! 








On Sunday we went to Blenheim Place. I would highly recommend a trip here. Once you have purchased your ticket you can validate it for a year, so you can go back as many times as you choose at no extra cost.
