The Town of Burford in the Cotswolds

The Town of Burford in the Cotswolds

I love History and Places. Here I’m going to try to post pictures and videos of the places I visit.

I aim to get a camera (a load better then using my phone), and actually taking lots of pictures/videos when I visit places of interest.

In the past I haven’t really got the hang of taking lots of snaps, but I really am going to get into the swing of things. I’ll also give a write-up of the Castles, Museums I visit soon.

Places I totally have to visit are Stonehenge, Durdle Door and Skara Brae.

Stay tuned for those visits!! 😀

I had Burford saved in my pinterest for a while now. I originally wanted to take public transport there but with COVID-19 very present and having just come out of lockdown that sadly was not going to be possible.

Unfortunately, It was the end of the day when I visited the Halle Gate. It was around 5pm and my phone had died, alas no piccies. Next time I go Brussels I will return to the Halle gate and update this (Story of the walk inside will be here shortly).

Update: I made the trip again on the 16th June 2015 and managed to get some pics here goes..
