England

Doris Visits places in England apart from London which has its own section. 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.

The port of Tyne Cruise Terminal is getting busier by the minute. The old oil tankers will have to move over. If it is nearer to you, take a look at the schedule and see if any of the cruises fit your dates, and if so see if we offer them so you might book through Doris Visits. CRUISE INSURANCE...

Coming out top of the Christmas experiences we visited and filmed last year was the Kew Gardens lights experience. It is a light show, a lit walk through the park, a fun fair and a Christmas Market. Entrance is via Victoria Gate, the one two blocks from Kew Gardens Tube Station and yes you have to pay, which is...

Seriously, Gatwick is nowhere near London, Luton is a building site with no direct transport and a bottleneck approach road that needs much more serious thought, Stanstead is OK, but where...

Waterbus Canal Tour - Many Londoners never visit their own city, we were guilty of that too. So when we started the world travel series we charged ourselves with trying to get to some unusual but simple tours of London between foreign travel. The Canal Boat is a very simple and cheap one and it runs from Little Venice, you can...

The left hand side boxes of the Drury Lane theatre are called the Kings Side, and the right hand side boxes are called the Princes...

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.

The Isle Of Wight is a secret UK holiday resort with a microclimate Just 22 minutes from Portsmouth and what seemed like little more than an hour from Waterloo, is the Isle of Wight.

London's West End Theatres This is just a fun look at some of the theatres I have grown up visiting and working in, says our main presenter Jean Heard. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4cne0u_top-10-london-west-end-theatres_travel If you are visiting London, also have a look at my Lillie Langtry Film because that is a journey worth walking. Or if you are in sunny London, take a canal boat ride...

Borough Market on any Friday should be on your 'London' bucket list Borough Market is a treat to visit and it must stay that way. 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...
