British Motor Museum

Anyone who reads my blog or follows me on social media channels will know I'm a petrol head. I've done a number of posts of my dream cars and also some of the amazing things like the Indy 500. In the heart of the UK is Motoring history. Lots of the historical car manufacturing took place here, and the likes of Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin have their modern day bases here. Also situated here is the British Motor Museum. The British Motor Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of historic British Cars; it boasts nearly 300 cars in its collection which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras. The Museum opened in 1993 as the amalgamation…

Lapland Silverstone

Just before xmas we headed off to Lapland Silverstone. For me (and anyone who knows me) I'm a massive petrol head. The fact that we did Route 66, Indy 500, and multiple other race events should give you this clue! So for the ability to take our own car onto the world famous Silverstone Race Circuit was something that we couldn't turn down. To add even more to this the track was being lit up with lots of lighting and effects. Given that this is the day job and something I'm equally passionate about the whole Lapland experience was like a perfect match!   So one cold December evening we headed off to Silverstone. As we approached the circuit from…

RHS Wisley Glow

I've spent my life around lighting and doing events. I don't talk about it much on the blog.However it's a big part of my life and even when I'm on the day "off" I don't mind spending my time looking at lighting either! So when I was asked by my old company if I wanted to see what they had been up to in the run up to Xmas at RHS Wisley Glow 2020 event I jumped at the chance. Making our way down to the RHS you were greeted by the entrance being all lit up. There was the winter feel with small stalls offering things like xmas cheeses, fudge and winter Cider drinks. This year hasn't been one…

Flight Simulator Experience

I guess it's been every kids dream at some point to be a pilot. I think mine was about aged 8 when I was fascinated by the old World War 2 planes and wanted to know how to fly a Spitfire. Obviously as you grow up you go through phases in life and mine passed quite quickly. However as a gift for my birthday about 18 months ago I got a voucher to go and have a flight simulator experience with the lovely team at virtual flight experience. I had such a good time flying in their Boeing 737 that I bought myself and my Girlfriend a voucher to go back. We went back recently to have another go. This…

Hidden London – Down Street Tube Station

Millions of travellers daily use the London tube network. What millions of travellers perhaps don't realise is the many different tunnels, dissused stations, branch lines and other bit's and pieces of the network still exist. Many of which for one reason or another are now either blocked up, not in use or just left derelict. Some of these stations are left to rot away, others are used for filming such as the Aldwich branch line and others like the Down Street Tunnels are occasionally opened by Hidden London for members of the public to look around them. Their mix of history, architecture and the chance to get to see parts that many people don't see is one of the less…
