By 'cultured London mistress' I mean the 'arts'.
Art, history, travel, fashion, horticulture and educational pursuits are all part of being cultured London Mistress.
As a cultured London Mistress I have always enjoyed educating myself.
Consequently planning a trip is half the fun, so my dear friend Miss Kris and I take it in turns. As a headmistress and art teacher she is best placed to know all the best exhibitions and places of interest, so I will often take her lead.
Thinking back, the first trip was to Polesden Lacey in Surrey. Not very impressive but it started us on our journey, our adventure, to go and see some of the impressive mansions in the UK.
Hampton Court came next and is still is my most favourite stately home. It’s going to be a long time before anything beats this.
Cultured London Mistress is all about the exhibitions too
We went to the V&A to see the Nature in Fashion show.
Wallace Collection was I visit I did on my own.
Burghley House near Bourne in Lincolnshire was stunning with the Heaven and Hell painting on the walls and ceiling of the staircase.
Airbnb was in an old Inn and was very basic, the next day we went to Ely Cathedral.
Fashion in Nature collection at the V&A was a chance for Miss Kris and I, to get together and indulge in our passion for fashion.
Norfolk was next on the list and it pissed it down. That didn’t stop us viewing the huge Damian Hurst sculptures at Houghton Hall. They we epic. We looked like drown rats. Our Airbnb was cute and they had made us a welcome cake. Our trip to Hunstanton the following day was lovely. I’d seen it from afar for the whole of my childhood, as on a clear day you can see Hunstanton from Skegness. It was charming and unspoilt. It reminded me of childhood holidays to our caravan at Chapel-st-Leonards. The smells of the English seaside are unsurpassed; candy floss, fish and chips, seaweed, rock and donuts.
Rain, rain and more rain on the day we drove to Houghton Hall to see the huge Damian Hurst sculptures that were dotted around the grounds. We got soaked but it was worth it, as they were pretty impressive. Our Airbnb was lovely as we had a separate wing of the house. The following day we set out for Hunstanton. I’d never been there even though I’d looked at it over the Wash for years. I grew up in Skegness, and on a clear day you could just see it. It thought it was charming. Still proper old-school seaside. Ot reminded me of my childhood holidays in Chapel-st-Leonards.
Cambridge was next and a trip to the Henry Moore Foundation. This permanent exhibition is outstanding. The sculptures shared acres and acres with a flock of sheep. pbotanical Japanese food Audley End Oct 2018 6. Mary Quant exhibition at the V&A was like a trip down memory lane. The colours, patterns and shapes of my childhood. We love to eat al fresco just around the corner in South Kensington at a place called ?
Blenheim Palace on a beautiful sunny day is a sight to behold. The gardens are magnificent. We were going to go to the botanical gardens in Oxford but decided upon the Museum instead. They have an amazing Egyptian collection. We also popped into Woodstock Museum, which was close to our Airbnb, to see the Alice in Wonderland exhibit. It was aimed at children but I loved it none the less. That evening we went the The Bear Hotel for dinner. Very upmarket and historical. Before leaving the area to drive home. We paid a visit to Bicester Designer Outlet; with stores like Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney.
William Blake Exhibition at the Tate Britain is huge and amazing. My favourite poem is Auguries of Innocence.
"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour…"
What’s next on the list? We usually play it by ear but there has been mention going to Derby to look at a Tudor mansion. Closer to home (London), John Sommes and Kennington artist house.
