With the announcement that Nottingham might be getting its own street food market (yaaaas!), I thought it’d be sweet to round up some of the best street food markets and pop-ups in the UK right now. It’s safe to say that we’re definitely very excited to be getting our very own street food market because it’s something that we feel Notts has been missing for a while. We get the occasional pop-up here and there but nothing as monumental as some of the other street food markets in the UK’s other cities like Manchester and London! Here’s the run-down of the best out there at the moment…
I’m always on the look out for tasty places for coffee, breakfast and brunch and when I discovered Bold Street Coffee in Liverpool it fast became my favourite place in the city. Hands down! I mean, I loved Slim’s Pork Chop Express for our evening meal but Bold Street Coffee was so good we had breakfast there twice in two days. I just couldn’t get enough of those scrambled eggs and bacon.
When a hotel room is at least 3x the size of your flat you know you’re about to have a great night, right? The Titanic Hotel Liverpool suites are absolutely ridiculously huge and beautiful and we had an awesome time. We paid for a standard room which looked incredible in itself but we managed to wangle an upgrade when we said it was our anniversary. I mean, if you don’t ask, you don’t get and we just thought we’d try it!
We like to get out and about in the UK, try new towns and cities and always find a new coffee shop to delve into. This weekend we stayed at the Cheltenham Park Hotel which is a huge hotel in the beautiful Cotswolds and I thought I’d tell you all about it.
The Location & Facilities
Cheltenham Park is actually located in Charlton Kings, about 2 miles drive from the centre of Cheltenham in a quiet area and only about 10 minutes from Cheltenham Racecourse. It’s a really big hotel, one of the biggest I’ve stayed in but the rooms are all great sizes. There is a gym, spa, beauty and health club facilities with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. We spent some time in the well-equipped gym and the pool on Saturday afternoon which was lovely. I decided to run a 5km in addition to my Marathon In A Month that I’m doing for the British Heart Foundation and I loved running on an actual treadmill instead of the road for once!
Here comes another hotel review for all you keen travellers! This weekend we stayed at the Risley Hall Hotel & Spa as part of a Red Letter Days gift that we received for Christmas and the hotel was so pretty I thought I’d write a little review as it’s a great location for the East Midlands.
