    Visit to Museum of London Docklands

    We are back from our epic Easter weekend trip to London with sore feet and a lighter wallet.  Our first stop was the Museum of London Docklands. London for us is always worth the effort and we aim to visit at least once a year with the kids.  There is just so much to explore […]

  • Jamie Oliver's DIner

    Jamie Oliver’s Diner

    After our unsuccessful attempt at getting a table in busy busy Central London, one day earlier. We decided to try again. This time our group had split from 8 people to just the 4 Hoopers.

  • Tower of London

    Sadly all good things have to come to an end and it was the final day of our London adventure. However,  we had a bit more history and culture ahead with a visit to the Tower of London.  Myself and Alan had been on previous visits and knew it was a good day out.    After […]

    Kensington Palace Tour

    As part of our whistle stop tour of the London tourist hotspots we headed to the Kensington Palace Tour.  This gorgeous palace is on the edge of Hyde Park.  Easily located just a short walk from Kensington Palace tube station.   The iconic gates of the palace were embedded in my childhood memories.  They formed […]

  • The Coulsons i nLondon

    The Coulson approach to London

    We’re a North East family of four but we’re not the Hoopers. Like the Hoopers we live in the same area of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and our kids go to the same school. The big difference is, however, we have two boys rather than two girls. This feels a little bit like a ‘Going for Gold’ question!!! […]
