14-17th April 2017
Off again, heading North to see friends in Durham, we take a leisurely drive from Southampton via a few places of interest and a quick pop-in on family too. It all went a little like this...
Friday 14th - We enjoy a smooth crossing on the ferry and, once on the motorway, we are eating up the mile on the way to Rotherham. En-route, we stop off at Canons Ashby in Northamptonshire. This is a great spot to enjoy our sarnies while a short, sharp shower passes over. This Tudor Manor House and terraced grounds is well worth visiting. The House is a hotchpotch of styles and the gardens are beautiful. We continue our journey and reach Rotherham by 4pm, nice to catch up with Family.

The Durham Lego Cathedral
Monday 17th - We chill in the morning before packing our bags, saying goodbye to our chums and heading into the City of Durham. This place is beautiful and always makes us happy. A short walk upto the Cathedral is a must, the Lego Cathedral inside the mighty original is fantastic! In the eve we grab a pizza and a drink before heading back to the hotel to relax.
Tuesday 18th - a very early start for me as I am catching the 6:12am train to London for work. Dave has a more leisurely morning before heading back to Rotherham to pick up family for their stay on the Isle of Wight.
8 out of 10.
