.: A walk in Windsor :.

After an amazing day in Oxford, and a concert at the Royal Albert Hall – oh yes, I had to find a way of taking my parents to the Royal, it’s a must do! I manage to find tickets for Four Seasons by the Candlelight (my dad loves classical music)

To keep on the topic of English things to do, the obvious choice was a morning walk and lunch @ Windsor before I had to take them back to the airport.

The restaurants look really inviting, but after my sunday breakfast, which consists of scrambled eggs mixed with cherry tomatoes, we were not hungry (yet). My parents are not really used to anything for breakfast which isn’t cereals or bread and milk. But in the meantime we’ve done pancakes at home and they’ve really enjoyed the eggs 🙂

After our walk we’ve ended up going to a lovely pub for a Sunday Roast, which they loved.

I find Windsor a really lovely place for a visit! I also love going to Virginia Water Park which isn’t that far from Windsor either. Have you been in Windsor? Any tips?

.: Exploring English Pubs – Virginia Water :.

If there’s one thing I love about UK, it’s got to be the pubs. They come in different shapes really. The more traditional ones, where the wood smells like beer and the walls are covered in “carpet”

If you visit one of these pubs expect to see a cat coming out of nowhere. It has happened to me, true story!

Then you have some historical ones like the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

I totally recommend a visit to this place, it feels like a travel through time as you go down the stairs and explore the little rooms underground

Then there’s the beautiful ones, like this one below (which I still need to visit)

The White Swan, Stratford upon Avon

Or London most famous pub

The Churchill Arms, Kensington

Our favourite is just next door: One over the ait, Kew Bridge

So it’s very tempting to try to stop at the nearest pub when you’re feeling hungry just to explore around and have some comfort food.

The one we went today was the Wheatsheaf Hotel – Fayre & Square in Virgina Water


I went for the Rump Steak, normally I tend to have burger or the Sunday Roast if it’s Sunday

Pudding was the “Millionaire’s cheesecake”, as he can’t simply resist caramel cheesecake.

Really lovely and relaxing meal 🙂

What’s your favourite pub?
