    the line and the pioneering engineering of Isambard Kingdom Brunel After a quick change for dinner back at the hotel it was off to the Pear Tree Inn a short journey from the hotel The Pear Tree Inn is set in seven acres of land just outside the sleepy village of Purton A former vicarage it has an elegant interior and the food was wonderful The restaurant is placed within easy access of the M4 and is worth a visit if you are in the area to taste modern traditional English dishes The next day was filled with lots of things to do so we were up and out early During the day we visited Old Sarum where you can discover the origins of Salisbury visited Mompesson House and Arundells the home of former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath Admittedly I didn t know much about Sir Edward but getting an insight into his private life and sitting on his furniture was an interesting experience The two main attractions of the day though were Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral The new visitor centre at Stonehenge was amazing offering an insight into the history of the site and how it evolved From the centre we were shuttled by a small mini bus up to the stone circles Although it was raining and cold the mysterious monoliths are a site that amaze and transport you back into time and it is har to understand the journey of the stones Salisbury Cathedral was another attraction that I had not even considered visiting in my life Yet the size of the cathedral and its décor are mind blowing after a guided tour of it we were taken to where a copy of the Magna Carta was being exhibited The Salisbury Magna Carta is the best preserved of the four originals dating from June 1215 Written in Latin with a quill pen on treated animal skin vellum sealed documents were sent throughout the country after the charter was forced on King John by barons who were unhappy with the ways he was ruling England To see the document in real life was moving knowing that its clauses have inspired the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights American Bill of Rights and the constitutions of many other democratic countries The document will be at the cathedral for the rest of the year The next day following a night at the Swindon Hilton we visited the pretty village of Bradford on Avon and the tithe barn There wasn t much to do in the village but it was peaceful and gave me time to relax Following that stop we visited the beautiful village of Lacock and its abbey The 13th century abbey is beautiful to wander around and has been used in many films including one of the Harry Potter films Just a short walk away was the tiny village of Lacock another attraction that pulls you back into a time forgotten Our last stop on the trip

    s Bar and on to watch a performance of We Will Rock You in the ships more than ample theatre After the show we were fortunate enough to be able to sit out on deck and view a wonderful electrical storm in the distance The next morning when I woke up we were heading up a huge canal lined with factories belching out smoke and other industrious things happening It reminded me of when we had left Tilbury with the cranes lining the side of the Estuary We got off the ship and were introduced to our guide and headed into Ghent The medieval city is picturesque and can be compared to Bruge but with a bit more of a cooler vibe to it with stylish new restaurants bars and boutiques Our first stop was to the Emile Braunplein the cities main square with the beautiful St Nicholas Church set to its side After a short walk we were in St Baafskathedral and spent time looking at Jan Van Eycks The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb Belgium s most important artistic masterpieces From there we took a short trip around the network of canals around the city The trip showed everyone the beauty of Ghent from riverside bars gothic looking buildings and a medieval castle Ghent also has an under current to it of modern eateries and bars This was the case when we had lunch in Brasserie Pakhuis a former warehouse If you ever go to Ghent this is well worth hunting down for a reasonably priced high quality meal With our bellies full we left the restaurant for a walking tour of the city One of the highlights among stopping at chocolatiers and bakeries and the meat market was an alleyway This may sound strange but the cities authorities have allowed graffiti artists to take over the wall that lines a whole street Some of the artwork was fantastic and well worth spending time to look at After a quick trip to a local brewery we were on our way back to the Marco Polo ship The next morning I woke coming into the port of Amsterdam I ve been to Amsterdam before but never arrived by ship To walk into the city centre could take about 45 minutes or a cab only costs ten euros However we boarded a canal boat that delivered us to the back door of the Gassan Diamonds factory I wasn t over keen on the idea of walking around staring at diamonds and feeling poor but the factory was a real treat To see the diamonds being cut and to have a talk on the different cuts of diamonds and how it effects how much light they filter was interesting I would suggest to anyone visiting Amsterdam to take some time for this short tour and visit the gift shop at the end just to be amazed at the prices of some of the jewellery After the tour it was back on

    would be staying in the Headland Hotel that overlooks the beautiful sandy beach The Headland Hotel is plush accommodation to stay in that has a focus on letting people bring their dogs to stay with them Once we had settled and had our lunch we were ferried to the Eden Project I have a small interest in plants and thought the tour would become tedious However the bio domes were full of interesting plant life and the tour guide had spirit and knowledge that captured my attention I didn t expect to enjoy the Project but it blew me away well worth the visit if you are in Cornwall The next day was the day that interested me the most because that s when the surf was up Our tutor for the session was Ben Ridding who runs a surf school situated just underneath Headland Hotel Within three minutes walk from the school we were on the beach Now I felt like I had properly arrived in Newquay with a board tucked between my arm and wet suite and sand under my feet After a briefing and being shown by Ben how to stand on the board and how to time catching a wave we hit the waves Although Ben is a great tutor I didn t have much hope in standing However ten minutes later mission accomplished I was standing on the board and being carried on a wave towards the beach The euphoria of catching that first wave made me understand why people become addicted to the activity After we dried off and got changed we were taken to the other side of the horseshoe shaped Fistral Bay to Lewinnick Lodge for lunch The Lodge gives you a polar opposite view of the Bay below and offers a

    of the Roman baths in the City of Bath Picture by Paul Giles By Paul Giles THIS year why not try to and get away and see some of the beautiful countryside the UK offers with a coach holiday instead of being stuck behind the wheel of a car Last month I was lucky enough to go on a coach trip in the Somerset region and soak in the landscapes while being ferried around The trip started in Bath and followed a route of attractions to Britain s smallest city Wells Bath was filled with market stalls selling seasonal items The Roman Baths and Pump Room are based within walking distance of the centre of the city which is a world heritage site It consists of preserved remains of one of the greatest religious spas of the ancient world The city s unique thermal springs rise in the site and the Baths still flow with natural hot water Other places to visit include the famous Cheddar Gorge a system of caves that were uncovered in 1903 At the site the remains of Britain s oldest complete human skeleton are situated with the natural gorge being classed as the second greatest natural wonder in the country After visiting the Gorge people can go onto the Clarks Retail Village a little further down the road Here shoppers can pick up bargains from series of outlets that carry massive reductions For animal lovers there is also the option of visiting Longleat to either the safari park or the new Monkey Temple where people can watch small monkeys being fed There is also a boat trip where people can go on the lake and feed fish to Longleats resident Sealions All in all there is a lot to do in a region that does

    I hop off in the former Capital of Culture my list of things to do is as long as your arm After gazing at the architecture of the Three Graces on the waterfront I start my sightseeing with a ferry across the famous River Mersey The 50 minute round trip allows me to soak up the city views before checking out the newly opened Museum of Liverpool which will fascinate music lovers football fans and history buffs alike What most people come to Liverpool for however is to find out all they can about the Beatles and there s certainly a lot to learn The Fab Four are the city s most famous sons and if it s memorabilia you re after head straight to The Beatles Story in Albert Dock I also opt to join one of the Magical Mystery Tours which shows tourists the city through the Beatles eyes Not only does our coach take us to Penny Lane and Strawberry Field but it also shows us the childhood homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney visits can be arranged separately with the National Trust if you want to go inside Another Liverpool must see is the intimate Cavern Club where the Beatles first made a name for themselves back in the 1960s Day and night it s still a great place to listen to live music and I can particularly recommend the club s in house tribute band which takes to the stage every Saturday To see another local landmark however I hop on a train to Hall Road just 30 minutes from the city centre This is one of the best ways to reach Crosby Beach which is home to Antony Gormley s unusual art installation Another Place Consisting of 100 life size figures spread out
