“When a Man is Tired of London, He is Tired of Life.”

London Eye

The London Eye’s ride pods have clear glass all around. Each capsule can accommodate up to 25 travellers. A single ride on the London Eye takes 30 minutes and offers a 360-degree view of London.

The bridge near the London Eye, Golden Jubilee Bridge, has a great view of the London Eye and the tall buildings in the distance. Coupled with the River Thame, it’s really pretty to go on a clear day at sunset! 

Get yourself photographed with the purple London sky in the presence of the London Eye. Wouldn’t that be romantic?

/St Paul’s Cathedral

Must-See St Paul’s Cathedral in London – The Golden Temple of Our Lord

St Paul's Cathedral, a must-see in London

The herringbone wall above the main entrance of the church is carved with a picture of St Paul’s mission to Damascus. On top of the wall, there is a stone statue of St Paul, making the whole building look symmetrical and majestic.

Inside the church, there is an arched nave supported by square stone pillars, painted in gilded and heavy colours. There are stained-glass windows and large frescoes of Jesus, the Virgin, and the Apostles on the four walls.

The high level of artistry and decoration is reflected in the carved woodwork of the choir stalls and the ironwork on the spiral staircases in the nave and in the residence of the Patriarch (where Harry Potter was set).

The church also contains the tombs and monuments of princes, generals and celebrities, such as the tombs of two 11th-century Saxon kings, General Wellington and the Architect of Rennes.

St Paul’s Cathedral is the second-largest domed church in the world, after St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. The British Royal Family generally holds most of its major weddings, christenings, and funerals in Westminster Abbey, but Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding took place on 29 July 1981 at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Cherry blossom drifts down at five centimetres per second. It often opens swiftly overnight 🌸. Then it falls in the wind, drifting and floating, pink and tender white…

The Greenwich Park cherry blossoms in late April are “multiple cherry blossoms”, which bloom a little later than normal cherry blossoms. However, the cherry blossoms are very low and dense, and the layers are staggered, making it an excellent place to take photos of cherry blossoms 📷! Both the courtyard and the cherry blossom varieties exude a rich British flavour.

York Culture – Nostalgia for England & Harry Potter 🔮

Journey into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter from York

Wizarding World of York

A Taste of England’s History in Freedom

Centuries of spooky stories have been passed down in the old town of York. York inspired Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, and many people visit for this reason. And, of course, the York Ghosts arouse a great desire to explore.

Just two hours by train 🚉 from London, step into this culturally nostalgic old city in the north of England and see how the Vikings, who came from Scandinavia, lived and breathed in the land.

The medieval walls surrounding York, the city’s medieval alleyways, York’s very own Snickelway, and a shopping street that dates back to the Domesday Book all tell us that there is something to see everywhere in the city. York is Britain’s most famous historical and cultural city, with a history dating back to 71 AD. King George VI once proudly said: ”The History of York is the history of England”.

/York Minster

It is a must-visit hit when travelling to York.

The towering Gothic twin towers look quite magical from afar. The building is on par with Westminster Abbey in London and is full of history.

The earliest piece of stained glass in York Minster is over 800 years old. Light from the sky folds through the clear glass and penetrates the church, naturally creating clarity and peace.

/The Shambles

❇️ The lane is near Stonegate in York. It is one of the best-preserved medieval streets in York if not all of Europe 🛤. It is also the location of Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter films 📸. The houses on this street are so short that they can only accommodate one or two floors since they were built in medieval times to prevent the spread of fire.

/National Railway Museum

🚂 The museum showcases the history and culture of Britain’s railways, with many old trains and railway equipment on display and associated historic photographs and models.

/Clifford’s Tower

⛰️ Clifford’s Tower is an ancient stone tower located on a hill just outside the walls of York. This tower was built in the 14th century as a defence against enemies. This tower has become a popular tourist attraction with great views over the whole city of York.
