I love visiting these parks. Whenever the sun is out (and sometimes when it isn't!), its a pleasure to walk around the parks, taking in all the freshness! So I thought it would be a good idea to pen down my thoughts about the ones visited in recent years. When I am in a park, I don't take many photographs, as it seems so mundane. But now when writing the blog, I realied how few pics I have of them. Still found some pics of the ones close to my house which were visited more often ;-), so at least there is something to post!
King's College Chapel
Don’t miss: The best way to explore this town is by taking a punting ride down the picturesque River Cam along the famous ‘backs’ (college gardens) and catching some great views of the famous colleges here. Also don’t skip King’s college chapel for a dose of truly stunning Gothic architecture.Eat: I find it fascinating to eat in places where my ancestors might have also dined, because these go back much so far in time. One such place is the Eagle pub that dates back to the 16th century. Order good old fish and chips and wash it down with a beer.Day 12 to 17: London Distance from Cambridge: 100km
Royal Windsor Racecourse
The next destination to head to is the Windsor Racecourse for Monday races. It can qualify as one of the best evening watching the horse racing. The easiest and most fun way to get there is by boat. If you are lucky, you might just win enough to pay for an extended trip in the city.
Lord's Cricket Ground
Day 4 in London: I'm a big cricket fan and if you're cricket fan in England, there's one place you just cannot miss. The Mecca for all cricket lovers; The Lords Stadium. I went in for the tour at 11 am (They have hourly tours in the morning and afternoon from 10 am - 2 pm). The tour started with the Long hall, proceeded to the players' dressing rooms & balconies, and ended in the media center. The entry fee and tour is £18/person.
