What did the UK’s cities used to look like?

Have you ever wondered (or even reminisced) about what a stroll around your closest UK city was like, pre-gentrification?  Urban regeneration and revitalisation have reshaped the profile and population of large swathes of UK cities over the past few decades. In place of the old, in has swept a new breed of affluent and younger aspirational inhabitants.

The new Spring Menu at The Botanist, York

No matter which branch of The Botanist I’ve visited, the decor is unbelievable. With vines hanging from the ceiling, big cosy chairs and a lively atmosphere. We were seated in the upstairs dining…

I absolutely love The Botanist but I’ve not been to the York one, which opened about a year ago! So when I got invited along to their Blogger’s Gin Masterclass, I was there! I wouldn’t say I’m the biggest gin drinker in the world. I did go to the Gin Festival which I rather enjoyed but it’s still not my drink of choice until now. The masterclass was held in the most Instagrammable greenhouse styled room upstairs. We had…
