Not an obvious place for a holiday, I know, but we will see what three nights in Hull has to offer! More likely to see puffins in Flamborough Head than Hull itself! Update Hull is a great city with very interesting historic buildings , a great waterfront and (today) much sunshine.
Every year I go to the excellent Cheltenham Literature festival in October. This year I will make a Lemi list. There are four festivals a year in Cheltenham, literature, jazz, music ( classical) and science. I must try one or two of the others too. Perhaps NOT the jazz. Chacon a son goût
Romney Marsh is a very unusual area in Kent. It is not conventionally pretty but it has its own bleak charm. The beginning of Dickens Great Expectations is set here. Remember the scary graveyard scene. It has a fantastic coastline and some incredible historic churches. It also has some interesting public arts works, of which more later. Romney Marsh‘s most famous export is its sheep.
