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...

If you are visiting London, whether as a someone who lives here, or a tourist, the old buildings and the history of London is a wonder. The great fire of London purged the plague, and reduced the wooden capitol demanding it was rebuilt. St Pauls Cathedral was one such building. Nel Gwynne live in those times and went from...

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'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.

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...

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...

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...

King Edward VII pretended to play golf at the Royal Cromer Golf Club, so I found myself there researching Lillie Langtry and then doing a film on Cromer and finding Churchill hated it. Cromer has both royal and wartime history though no cruise port. One of the nearest deep ports is Felixstowe which, is mainly a container port, so...

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...
