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.

Lilly Langtry, actress, & lover of King Edward VII - As well as presenting Doris Visits I have a one woman show; Royal Mistresses, which thanks to P&O I have played on Broadway - If you agree the definition of a Broadway show and theatre is one that is in New York and has over 500 seats. I played New...

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...

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...

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. You can also get here by coach so, so cheaply. As you dock on the pier an old central line tube is waiting to take you...

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 -...

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...

If you had asked me yesterday which was my preferred London airport I would have had to think hard. Not today, the answer in a flash is Birmingham. 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...
P&O used to own Nel Gwynne's old house, gifted to her by the King. With so much press currently bouncing over recent Royal Affairs we are reminded that such dalliances are far from new. 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...

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...
