From Sir Francis Drake seeing off the Spanish Armada to Nelson defeating the French at Trafalgar, we’re a seafaring nation.

Eco-Tourism Just Got Turtle-y Awesome Down In Florida

Florida can get a bad rep, a place where overweight boozed-up Brits pour off 747s ready to hit the motel pool and maybe a barmaid or two before getting arrested by a Disneyland policeman dressed as Goofy. That’s not the real Florida. Leaving the chaos of Orlando behind and heading south, down the coast, you hit the serenity of the Florida Keys, a world so different it’s practically another country. In fact almost was another country, the Keys actually tried to officially secede from the rest of America and in 1982 they declared independence, albeit for just one minute, but the point […]

From bored businessmen, to horny honeymooners hotels are just inherently sexy. And nobody knows that better than South Place Hotel, who have just introduced their new ‘Naughty Night Away’ package, and guess what: they really want you to come… Check-in involves a foreplay consisting of an enticing drink from the bar and aphrodisiac chocolate and chilli brownies, left in their room.

Life’s A (London City) Beach

If your idea of summer is lazing on a day bed in a beach club outside St Tropez or beside the lapping waves of the Caribbean in Barbados, sipping a pina colada and soaking up the rays at an exclusive beach party, how does  trading all that for bank of the Thames at Waterloo sound?

Have You Got Good Taste? Prove It At Taste Of London

Taste comes in various forms, saying ‘sofa’ instead of ‘settee’, knowing how to use a fish knife or which direction the Waitrose CCTV cameras are pointing so you can shoplift avocados, but the real mark of taste is whether you’ve got your tickets for Taste of London yet.

Birmingham Royal Ballet, one of the world’s great ballet companies, are coming to Sadler’s Wells this June and they’ve got two shows for our delectation, and they’ll be championing women with performances produced by female choreographers and a full length ballet with a strong, independent woman at the heart of the story.
