iPhoneography: Snapshot in Time

I hope everyone has had a nice jubilee weekend? I’m dizzy with the sight of Union Jacks! Here’s a little Instagram collage of my weekend.

I explored two new corners of Bristol! Ones that I’ve walked and driven past hundreds of times and was oblivious to what lay inside. A Georgian and a Tudor house nestled right in the heart of the city amongst shops and cafes. They’re now maintained in their original(ish) condition as museums.

The Georgian House was my favourite. It was impeccable and really told a story of the man who lived there. As a merchant of the time in Bristol, it wasn’t surprising to find out he was involved in the slave trade. A little difficult to think about, but – a sign of the times. I loved the kitchen (top left).

The Tudor House was just as impressive, with oak panelled rooms, carved furniture and ceiling cornices. The rest of the weekend was filled with a lot of walking, fruit tea, Belgian beer and a folk festival.

Much merriment; thank you for the long weekend, Queenie!

      Hi Faye, it’s on Great George Street, just off Park Street and directly opposite St George’s Hall. I couldn’t believe it, always thought they were offices!

      And, thank you :) I love my espadrilles in the summer!
