travel trumps guide to the chalfonts


Quiant isn't it? A sleepy village green, regulation pond and bunting. It's got that 'hollywood' image of an English Country village. Or if you're in the UK, a Midsomer Murders location. 

You'd be right too, for Chalfont St Giles (for that is where we are), is a picture perfect English village. As are it's fellow villages in name at least, Chalfont St Peter and Little Chalfont (although the last one is less so than the first two!) For our latest Travel Trumps we discover the Chalfonts, villages full of history and some quality attractions.

the mile of style - regent street

monopoly board

Recognise it? Looks empty, right? Believe me when I say it was just a lucky moment! This street is usually crowded with shoppers and people passing through. 

For the second of our 'Up your street' posts, which if you're new to the blog is our way of saying around the Monopoly board, we visit Regent Street - the mile of style!

a blast of colour - ordinary shoreditch

A Blast of Colour 

Look close enough, and you'll find it - sometimes it's obvious, in your face. Other times it's got to be found, up above, down below, to the right and to the left. It's often political, in your face, sometimes funny, occasionally for promotion. What are we talking about?

Street art, graffiti. 

Come to the district of Shoreditch in London, and you'll find plenty of it. Stunning works of art from some of the best street artists around. It's worth every second of time you can give to seeking them out, admire them, Instagram them. Welcome to Ordinary Shoreditch.
