The castle grounds were covered in snow, turning the lake to a sheet of ice. Exotic garden ornaments and games of archery adorned the surroundings of Hever Castle, making it a perfect place for a lazy Sunday walk. In my opinion the real fun started inside the castle as the lives of the historical occupants came to life and gave each room a rich-Royal story. Hever Castle was enchanting and inspiring, as was the drive we had to take to get there.
Swans on the lake – Hyde Park London
The grandeur of these swans speak of the Crystal Palace, a temporary structure that stood nearby in 1851 to hold The Great Exhibition. This famous exhibition was the first in a world-series, which held works of industry of all continents. This pretty piece of lake, otherwise known as ‘The Serpentine’ was also home to the triathlon and marathon swimming events at the London Olympics this year.
