Doris Visits The UK

Doris Visits The UK

Doris Visits places in the UK, some random, some with great stories like the trysts of Royalty past affairs. In these places Doris also tries to find the unusual for extra interest and a little edge, as well as the obvious favourites you must see.

According to the Daily Mirror (see article) more Brits have visited the Eiffel Tower than Buckingham Palace, we just never go and see our own sites. We have feature Buckingham Palace as well as some gems like the fabulous canal boat ride from Little Venice (near Warwick Tube Station) down through Regents Park to Camden the home of London's...

The Roman Baths are currently being remarketed because of a fascinating light display, the invitation is to see them at night, Torchlit Summer Evenings. I hope they do this again at Christmas, not only because it will be darker earlier, but the Christmas market in Bath at the end of each year, which gets bigger and bigger, will mean...

Harry Potter in Edinburgh Had J.K. Rowling never moved to Edinburgh, the Scottish capital in the 1990s, there may never have been a Harry Potter. Then, there might never have been a Potted Potter, the Edinburgh Festival favourite spoof spin off from Dan Clarkson. Dan, a UK actor now spends a lot of time in the USA where he tours the show....

Just up from London Bridge station, it sits at the base of The Shard, which is London's tallest building. If you have seen the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, you might not be...

THE CHEAPEST WAY TO GET TO SOUTHAMPTON CRUISE TERMINAL DORIS VISITS TESTS THE COACH  It is a five star thumbs up from us as we get there before we know it. The London tube to Victoria was the hardest as there were closures and we did have to bus the last bit to Victoria, but the coach was easy. Victoria is...

Doris Visits considers two different Golf Weekends in the UK Although Doris Visits is predominantly a cruise travel channel, we find fellow adventurous and like minded golfers and skiers when cruising. Not in the golf nets on the top deck but normally at the 19th hole! So we have added a couple of UK fun weekend golf retreats. TUDOR LODGE -...

Cruise the UK Some people no longer hold a passport and find insurance difficult, so a cruise staying within the British Isles can offer time back on board a ship. Scotland has a terrific appeal from Isle of Mull to Skara Brae, Shetland to the Orkneys. We have just been going over materials from an old film we made in Shetland,...

London - critics number 1 restaurant, Restaurant Story Many critics say this is London's premiere restaurant, so we went to see what the fuss was about. 'Story' only seats 40 covers, you need a reservation, it will cost the national debt of a small town, but, boy is it a great night. Presenter of the cruise TV channel Doris Visits,...
