When the bank holiday spells stella weather, and endless sunshine, what better than exploring somewhere new, and somewhere you’ve passed multiple times on the way to university. I had managed to book 2 extra days off the last bank holiday, and I was determined to make it count. The first on our agenda – Arundel.
It was a glorious Saturday, and just by accident, we had a spare few hours which made perfect time to explore a new, local national trust site. This time, we headed to the much loved Sheffield Park site. We had heard many rave about the gorgeous gardens, and it’s somewhere I frequently pass, to and

And we took full advantage of the stunning weather by heading to our next National Trust Site – Bodiam Castle. It’s somewhere I
We may have only just reached the first weekend of 2019, but we are already onto our second National trust site of the year! If you caught our first ( a return visit to Wakehurst place ), you’ll know that we were very kindly gifted a national trust membership for Chrimbo. We love exploring locally
