There has been reports that there has been two months of rain in 24 hour in the UK. Well we have been in to Newquay over the weekend and Saturaday was a lovely day but at 2am Sunday morning the rain began. And it didn’t stop all day plus being on the coast means you get the sea breeze, or should I say gale winds haha.
It rained that much the roof started to leak at the hotel we was in.
While we have been down there we tried out a few bars clubs and restaurants.
The best resurant we can recommend is a place called Steams.
It is in a great location over looking the coastline. The food is really nice and excellent value for money.
Suitable for families couples and groups.
We also when to over bars and clubs and found a bar and night club call Berties was the best.
Music was varied but that cant be a bad thing because everybody can enjoy it.
The atmosphere was good and lively.
These two recommendations are 100 meters from one another so for the ladies who are in heels dont worry its in waling distance.
Pearson has taken a trip to Wollinton Hall in Nottingham. The building was built between 1580 and 1588. There is plenty of grounds to walk around on a nice summers day. The house is impressive but compare to other manor house located around the Uk it is quite small. Wollinton Hall and Deer Park is currently a council owned building, this is rare because most manor houses located in the UK are managed but the national trust.
The hall is open to the general public free of charge. but you will have to pay for the the car parking. The parking costs are £2.00 for 3 hours or £4.00 for all day.
Also in the court yard there is a engine museum that costs £2 per person.
If you fancy a bit to eat there is a cafe on site. Seating is limited on a bad day but if the weather is fine, the cafe does provide plenty of seating outside.
This is a great budget day out.

Lets bring it back to the UK. Near the Nottingham, Linconshire the is a monor house that was built in the 1800’s.
It was used in the film The Haunting (1999) I can under stand why with its gothic exterior is the ideal setting for a horror movie.
You can visit this manor house any time through out the year. It is currently used a university campus but you can stay the night as a guess. The grounds are so big they have wedding venues there to while the campus is open.
It is well worth the visit if you are into English heritage and Gothic architecture, Or if you are planning on getting married.
Gibraltar is located south of Spain.
The Images above show the airport from two angles. The airport is very short and both ends will result in landing in water. If the pilot misjudges the landing or taking off.
The tempture can go as low as 10 degrees and the highest is 28 degrees. This small part of the world has a interesting landscape.
What is good is when you are coming to land and you see the view of the mountain side and the clear blue sea. It put a great holiday feeling when you arrive.

You can also pay to go to the top of notre dame. Dont get me wrong there is loads of steps to get to the top but its worth it.
There is always a queue to get in but its only like 20 minutes. The architectural design of the building is really impressive. and when you get out side you will see the gargoyles. Is hard to believe the condition of these Statues because of how old they are.
As you can see from the Image above you get a good view of the river seine and in the distance you will see the Eiffel Tower.
