Visiting Steeton Hall Gateway

Visiting English Heritage sites is rapidly becoming an obsession of mine. The history behind the sites is usually fascinating. The monuments are beautiful, even in their ruined state, and hold so much history. And they are usually set in gorgeous surroundings so are great for a day out walking or with a picnic. Steeton Hall Gateway is the closest English Heritage site to us and somewhere we’ve never visited before.

North Bay is the quieter area and South Bay, where we have spent the day, the busier part. Here are five things to do in Scarborough South Bay.


Leeds Festival 2018

Leeds Festival 2018 is a very different LeedsFest for me as I have a new festival buddy. It is Ellie’s first Leeds Festival and her “proper” festival too.

As I’m something of a self-confessed festival veteran now I want to take her so she can see what it’s like. I want her to experience everything, know what happens where and generally show her around.  (more…)
