Ruins of St. Botolph’s Priory

This was one of the first Augustinian churches in England, and it was destroyed during the English Civil War in 1648. A great place to time travel a bit and forget about modern-day technology; maybe yell freedom from the top of your lungs and remake your own version of Brave Heart, be the modern William Wallace!

Serenity at its finest, greenery at eye-sight, no matter where you lay your eyes, you will find a natural splendour taking your breath away; indulge in Mother Earth’s blessings, away from the tech modern life!    

Castle Park

Picnics and long walks were made for Castle Park; it’s “the place” to spend a whole day enjoying the greenery, take a photograph or two for IG, and even enjoy the ducks swimming heavenly with their flat feet, not caring about anything in the world.
