Bank holiday Highclere

What to do on a bank holiday Monday at the end of May? Highclere Castle, of course. After a quick driving lesson for Livi (flawless hill start btw), it was off to Highclere sneaking in the back way. Long gone are the pre-Downton weekly trips on a Sunday afternoon, care of a nominal annual membership fee. However, the castle was empty enough actually go inside for a change, the tea shop was as welcoming as ever, and the grass still soft enough for headstands. All rounded off with a trip up Beacon Hill.

Beacon hill revisted

Surprisingly easy to get to, despite nearly losing the car in a small ‘puddle’ by the car park left over from the flooding, always good to take a walk up Beacon Hill.
